Give me a ring to organise my coming over to visit you and your horse at your yard where the problem behaviours are happening. Together we will examine everything about your horse from any known history and bad associations to analysing the environment, the triggers, the behaviours and the reinforcement history. We will find out what your horse gains by it's behaviour and what could be reinforcing it. From this point on, you will have gained a greater insight into your horse, the reasons for the behaviours and what we can do to implement change
We will carefully assess the environment and see where the triggers lie. I will be making assessments into everything relevant and propose changes in routine, training and environment.
I will then help you to help yourself by training you in the appropriate direction.
This is the most popular of my services. Having me come over to help you at home, where the problems are happening. It is a complex day where we look at all associations which could be creating any problem behaviour- from veterinary history to all management protocols in place. Behaviour consultation and assessment is a massive subject.
I may implement some changes in management in order to help your horse succeed and feel safe. I devise a training plan and start to implement it. I do not leave until you are completely confident in the training and a future plan is in place.
I continue to support you after the day by phone or a further visit if needed.
