Ep 18 // It's Not A Training Issue

Story time! This episode is the recap of a real life "walk the talk" moment with one of my horses that happened all in a single day. When I'm talking about not using punishment, giving the horse the benefit of the doubt, approaching behavior issues from a whole horse perspective, how trust is built and maintained, deepening your relationship with your horse, recovering from mistakes, letting go of control, giving the horse a choice.... I mean ALL of it... This episode is my recap of me walking that talk and what that looks like on a day to day basis. And WHY it's so important. ✦ www.TheWillingEquine.com✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thewillingequine/support

Ep 18 // It's Not A Training Issue

Ep 17 // Horses That Aren't Your Own

In this episode I answer a listener's question about how to interact with horses that aren't your own, in a positive way! I discuss four different ways you can do this, briefly address the idea of respect (not in the way it's typically talked about ), and also talk about the struggles of trying to communicate with people about possible changes for their horses. ✦ www.TheWillingEquine.com✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thewillingequine/support

Ep 16 // Clicker Training For Yourself (and others)

Wouldn't it be nice if we could clicker train people? I mean, technically.. there's the science for it and it does work (look up TagTeach), but I don't think the other horse owners at the barn would take kindly to you clicking and giving them gummy bears haha. BUT, we can use the idea of shaping plans and reinforcing approximations of behavior with positive reinforcement for both ourselves, those around us, our students, and even the other people at the barn.. and without it being "weird" or requiring a lot of work on your part. In this episode I talk about the ways we can use positive reinforcement and shaping plans to modify our own behavior, become better trainers, enjoy our own training more, have better relationships with our human learners (students), and more! ✦ www.TheWillingEquine.com✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anc...

Ep 16 // Clicker Training For Yourself (and others)

Ep 15 // When There Are No R+ Trainers Nearby

Until recently, horse training has been rather localized. If you wanted to learn how to train a horse, you found a nearby trainer. If you wanted to become a horse trainer, you went to work for a local horse trainer. Unfortunately the number of R+ focused trainers is still rather limited, and so there isn't always a nearby trainer you can learn from. In this podcast I talk about how it's still possible to become a horse trainer or learn how to train your horse with an R+ focus ...even when there are no like minded trainers nearby. ✦ www.TheWillingequine.com✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thewillingequine/support

Ep 14 // Damage Control

"Damage control" AKA what to do when your horse is already over their fear threshold, and losing their mind. can we keep both them and us safe without using punishment? Can we help them return to training without demanding obedience and respect through the use of aversives? What about if your horse is running scared in the pasture, how do you help them calm down?

Ep 10 // What Defines Abuse?

In this episode I talk with Sara Kalenkiewicz ( @equineapprentice ) about what horse abuse looks like in a wide variety of situations. I know this sounds like a terrible episode, but I think you may find it really interesting and perspective broadening. We look beyond what the law defines as abuse/neglect... and dive head first into this touchy subject to discuss the grey areas of "abuse". ✦ www.TheWillingEquine.com ✦ Instagram.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ YouTube.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ Facebook.com/TheWillingEquine ✦ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thewillingequine/support
