LOVE YOUR HORSE
BUT NOT THEIR BEHAVIOUR?
HORSE BEHAVIOUR PROBLEMS
When horses have behaviour problems they often act in ways which are frustrating, inconvenient, or even dangerous. Lauren can help with a wide range of horse behaviour problems, including:
Aggression - biting, kicking, striking, at humans or other horses
Repetitive behaviours - cribbing, wind-sucking, weaving, stall walking, wood chewing, self-mutilation
Under saddle issues - bucking, rearing, bolting, jump refusal, spookiness
In-hand issues - bolting, poor ground manners
Management issues - aggression at feeding time, stall kicking, pulling back when tied
HORSE BEHAVIOUR SPECIALIST
Why not just use your coach, riding instructor, or trainer to solve your horse's behaviour problem?
In the same way your coach, instructor, or trainer is a specialist in their field, Lauren is a horse behaviour problem specialist.
Behaviour problems and training problems are different. While training problems generally reflect the lack of development of a desired skill, behaviour problems are usually accompanied by emotions such as fear or anxiety. Routinely-used horse training methods don't positively address these emotional states, and using them in an attempt to resolve behaviour problems may make things worse, or even create new problems.
The techniques used to change emotional states are very different from routine training methods, and they aren't generally studied by equine professionals other than equine behaviourists. Behaviourists resolve behaviour problems by using these techniques to positively change the horse's emotional state, while also teaching the horse how they should behave instead.
Different specialists within the equine industry can work together to help you and your horse. Lauren is happy to work with the other equine professionals on your team to resolve your horse's behaviour problems.
