What You'll learn....

Learn how to read your horse intimately as you are approaching him

Would you like to know how to read if your horse is truly happy to be with you? How about having tools to change the conversation if your horse is saying: “Please do not touch me!”, or “Do not come near me!”, or “Please slow down!” How would it feel to know you can influence how your horse feels about you by reading his body language and adjusting your responses accordingly?

This course if for you: If you have been struggling a little to catch your horse. If you are catching your horse’s body but you feel you don’t really have his heart. If your horse looks away or walks away when you come into the paddock, or turns his bum on you when you walk into the stable. If you feel your horse is “tolerating” you but is not quite engaged. If you want to develop a better relationship with your horse, this is a great place to start!

 

This mini-course gives you the tools to do those things! You will learn how to read your horse intimately as you are approaching him. You will develop the “feel” to know how fast you can walk up to your horse, how close he really wants you to get, from where he would like you to walk up.

You will learn how to respond to your horse when he walks away or looks away, or just stands stock-still without engaging with you.

Monica Andreewitch

Brought up in Caracas, Venezuela, Monica developed her love of horses in a natural, free and spontaneous environment of the family’s weekend home in the rustic countryside. She went on to study Veterinary Medicine at University for three years before leaving to start her family. The love of horses never left her, nor did the desire to find the most compassionate and effective way to care for them and train them.

Monica qualified as a Riding Instructor in Germany and an Equine Body Worker in the UK, where she also competed successfully in affiliated dressage and eventing. Monica’s next career stop was to represent an Australian horsemanship program in the UK, a role that took her to Australia various times to study horses. This was followed by complimenting her coaching skill by qualifying as an EFL Coach.

Monica has created her own Softness Training Programme, helping people learn how to read their horses, connect with them and create trusting partnerships.

This is really useful for anyone who needs to interact with our equine friends. How often do you see people barge into a horse's space and drag them in from the field then complain when the horse is "rude"?

Great for any horse owner!

Such a great course about being mindful when around your horse, learning whether your horse actually wants to interact with you. Think it will help many owners, from beginners to veterans.
