Online Workshop – Starting Your Miniature Horse In Harness – September 2016

As requested, I am repeating my popular Online Workshop on Starting Your Miniature Horse In Harness in September 2016!

What will you learn?

Learn how your horse learns, and how to explain things in terms your horse understands.

Learn how to work with your horse’s natural instincts, instead of against them.

Learn how to listen to what your horse is telling you, and be confident about when they are ready to progress.

Learn how to make teaching your horse to drive a safe, fun and rewarding experience.

Learn a building block approach, each step building on the next to progressively teach the skills your horse needs to become a confident driving horse.

How does it work?

There are four webinars – each will be broadcast live. You’ll see my slides and photos and hear my voice describing the content to you. It’s interactive – you can ask questions anytime via a chat box and your keyboard.

For additional and video content, you’ll be added to a private Facebook group. I’ll share video clips to further illustrate the information shared in the webinars, you can ask questions and share your own photos and videos, and we’ll all have some great educational discussions.

Can’t make it to a live webinar? That’s no problem, as the recording will be available to you soon after it is broadcast so you can watch it whenever is convenient, and as many times as you would like. Have a question? Just head over to the Facebook group and ask away!

Not on Facebook? It’s free and easy to join, and with the simple interface for sharing and discussion, Facebook is the best venue I have found. Our group settings will be set to “secret” which means no one but those in the group will see anything you post, or even know you are a member.

Praise for Starting Your Miniature Horse In Harness:

“This workshop gave participants the whys as well as the how-tos so you had a good understanding of what the purpose was of each step.”

“Really enjoyed the sessions – nice blend of factual information, personal experience, good visuals, good supplemental video clips.”

“My husband and I watched all the webinars and found them full of knowledge. Explaining how to understand your horse was a big part … some people just don’t get that part but it is a really important part. Great job Kendra.”

Webinars will take place on September 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd, and will be at 6PM Mountain Time (Calgary, Alberta). You can find the time in your area with this Time Zone Calculator. But remember, even if you’re not available during the live broadcast, you can watch the recording any time and will have access to the Facebook group for all your questions.

The cost of this workshop is $110 CDN, and payment can be made via Paypal through the button below or via e-transfer to circlejminiatures@gmail.com – be sure to include the email you’d like to use to register, as you will be sent content and an invitation to the private Facebook group.



Starting Priscilla 7, Targeting, and Agility

So quick diversion here. I did work Priscilla today. And she was good, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

Today I’m excited about targeting.  Continue reading

Solving Rocky 6

I wonder how often we don’t think about the rest of the horse’s day when we’re looking at their behaviour when they’re being worked. A change in routine can make a huge difference – think about the behaviour of a grade one class on a regular Wednesday in the middle of February, versus the same kids in the week before Christmas. Or heck, me on a regular day, and me on a day when I didn’t get enough sleep … trust me, that’s bad news for everyone.  Continue reading

Solving Rocky 4, Starting Priscilla 3

I’ve always wanted to do a training diary. I think there’s great value in keeping track of what you worked on each day, what you noticed was improved, which excises you worked on. I’ve even bought notebooks specifically for the purpose – although, those who’ve ever been shopping with me know I don’t need any excuse to buy a notebook. 😉 I think blogging it is a good option for me … not only are all the reasons I wanted to keep a training diary still valid, there’s the added bonus of a little public accountability! Just in case anyone was wondering why on earth you were getting a play by play. Continue reading
