About learning to train horses
Horse Training Lessons;
Every time we interact with a horse, we are creating an influence, establishing a pattern, for better or worse. Every time we walk in a stall or into the pasture, we have an opportunity to 'listen' and establish trust. At that point, from the horses eyes, it's all about comfort - emotionally and/or physically - and reinforcers.
We benefit from learning how to observe. The horse often has to learn how to learn.
Humans, characteristically, have always 'told' horses what to do, generally not giving the horse a chance to do anything else. Learn how the horse notices even your subtle body language, intention, personal energy control, tensions and relaxation. Learn what the horse considers to be desirable reinforcers, so that you become good communicators. You can learn how to notice the horse looking to you for answers and asking you questions. You can learn how to inspire and shape behaviors the horse offers.
Learn how to tell what the horse really thinks about your interactions.
Ask yourself, what's in it for the horse?
Lessons in horse training are usually an hour. You can present me with a request for a specific task/behavior/problem or let me make an evaluation of where to start. The horse knows how to be a horse. The horse is doing what he thinks we are asking. The horse is doing the pattern we have created, whether it is good or bad. The horse is doing what brings him comfort, either physically or emotionally. We can unintentionally create misunderstandings, with a lack of clarity, poor timing, by an act of omission, or by being in the horse's way, emotionally or physically.
Lessons in horse training can be given in many different environments and circumstances. You can use your horse or mine.

WHY DOES BEHAVIOR HAPPEN?
Generally speaking, we and our animals behave because, either there is something in it for us/them, or we/they want to avoid an icky consequence.
We/they are usually moving toward something desirable or away from something undesirable.
