Once you understand the theory, there are endless creative possibilities. Horse training truly is an art.

Welcome! My current goal for this blog is to develop a resource consolidating the theory and science behind horse training. On here I plan to share training ideas, product reviews, training resources and present information that will absolutely help you build a great working relationship with your horse. The information is always growing and changing, so I will update this blog as I learn. This is not a training method. This is a place where we use science to find the best way to train our individual horses in whatever discipline we choose. Please note that this blog will be mainly positive reinforcement focused, as R+ is what I am currently using in my training. That being said all of the training principles can be used with negative reinforcement, or combined positive and negative reinforcement. The approach is different, but the theory is the same. There are many roads to Rome, it is up to us to choose the best one for our horses. I am very interested in hearing from you, so feel free to leave a comment or contact me through my contact page. 

About Me:

Hi, I’m Courtney and this is my heart horse Fox! We currently live in a remote town in northern Canada. Fox is a Fjord/Morgan that pushed me out of my comfort zone as a trainer, and forced me down a path of learning and discovery that has been absolutely amazing! I love gathering information and deepening my understanding of horses. I’m not just searching for a new method or technique. I want to know what’s driving behaviour, and how I can make my horse’s life the best life he can possibly live, and our partnership the best one we can possibly experience. This has been and will continue to be a lifetime journey of discovery. I’m excited to share what I have already learned, and to continue to grow. My whole life I have been asking the questions: Can we train horses with a better understanding of how they process and learn? Is it possible to have horses that not only want to work, but actually push the limits of their abilities without pressure? Can we still have a deep bond with a horse, even when we are asking him to work at the edge of his physical ability every day? When I met Fox I was finally given the motivation to dig deep and find the answers to these questions. What I have discovered is a whole new world of possibility that I didn’t know existed. This information hasn’t just changed how I train horses, it has massively improved my life and relationships as whole. I hope this blog can help you find this amazing feeling of endless possibilities too! 

Hi, I’m Courtney, and this is Fox!
