How To Set Boundaries That Enhance Your Equine Relationships

Setting Equine Boundaries - How to say no in ways that enhance not destroy

How to say yes more often | taught by Ben Hart

Course description



I was looking for a way to help people set boundaries which is where the idea for a webinar came from but I realised you needed more than a webinar I want to give you more than just a webinar I want learning that fits in to busy lives whatever time zone you are in, more than that I wanted to give you tools to actually apply the learning, to make it totally relevant to you, your equine, your environment and importantly to fit with your personal beliefs.

Over the 18 years I have been helping people and equines all over the world through workshops, clinic, home visits, books, talks and presentations it has become clear that 90% of people want help setting boundaries, for sure they call it, help with learning, solving problems, dealing with riding issues, biting, kicking, not leading, napping, being fearful or nervous, but it all boils down to this one way or another they are trying to help their animals learn what works and what doesn’t – boundaries.

Like you these people on the whole have been kind, caring people who want to do the right thing for their equines and like you they are brave enough to ask if there is a better way to set these boundaries, they don’t want to beat or punish their equine other half, no like you they want to enhance their relationships.

I get it, because just like you, for safety I have to set boundaries when I work with equines, I have kids and they have to have some boundaries, I work and in business there has to be some negotiable and non-negotiable – boundaries, but just like you I don’t want to be the bad guy, I want to enhance any relationships and avoid the conflict that we all hate so much.

" I'm really enjoying the course, great value and certainly making me focus on what I am trying to achieve with my horse. Especially liking the structure of the workbook which is making me think of my "issues" in a totally different and positive way, SS. Facebook"This course will help you to plan ahead of time so you can decide how you want to set boundaries, we can work together to help you decide what right for you, one of the great things about this learning opportunity is that it allows you to remain in control and decide how you want to set boundaries that enhance your relationships. I want you to feel more confident, safer and enjoy your equine time better, because if you don’t do this work what happens is you continue to feel unsure about what’s the best thing to do, that lack of clarity will lead to a lack of confidence which creates uncertainty leading to inconsistency as you chop and change between other people ideas, so that feeling of confusion and discomfort when you interact with your horse, donkey or mule continues and the relationship slowly dies, rather than being relaxed and enjoying your time together you are always playing what if and apologising to your horse while being at the mercy of other peoples beliefs about showing your horse” who is boss”


I would ask you to do one small thing right now please, don’t hesitate or promise to do it later, it might not get done, it takes less than 4 minutes in total to watch the free short videos on the content of the course and if the course is for you, so that you will have the facts you need to decide if you want to join others who care enough about their equine partners to set boundaries in ways that enhance the relationship rather than destroy it.

"I am enjoying it no probs paying etc and watched the webinar today - LOVE like minds and if I can say so you make allot of sense and it is fantastic information J.L Facebook"

" Everything, including videos all work well on my phone. Content great, as always from you Ben. Thank you. Looking through workbook right now. J L facebook"

How To Set Boundaries That Enhance Your Equine Relationships

I think this was a great course and Bens philosophy towards training is fantastic and the best for our horses - how to say no - means we need to say yes is a really strong message and one I am sure so many horses and their people will benefit from - once they begin to look for opportunities to say yes - well done Ben and I look forward to more courses from you in the future

Thank You Ben Hart!

I have only just started the course, but...I read your Clicker Training book and have your Shaping Plan. You have changed my life with horses. I use to train using Natural Horsemanship methods and it began to not feel right. I started searching for better ways and I found you! Thank you for changing my way with horses and thank you for being in the world for our dear horses, donkeys and mules!!!

Great course!

I'm getting sick and tired of trainers who fight one another and spend more time bashing their "rivals" by showing their worst videos and misquoting them than actually teaching things. One of the things I love about Ben's attitude in general and this course in particular is how he encourages us to find out where our own path lies and how to walk it... ... not to mention a few technical gems, e.g. the way he addresses unwanted chains of behaviors, an issue that a lot of so-called "positive" trainers tenaciously sweep under the carpet. Well done!

Excellent!

This was an excellent course. It reinforced what I have felt for a long time but not trusted myself to follow because I had been believing the other "shoulds" and "experts". I especially like the concept of principles rather than methods and techniques. The session at the end with the Arab stallion was very good as it demonstrated some of the practical applications of these principles. I will recommend this course to others and will be getting more of your resources. Thank you! Robyn

Yet another excellent training session from Ben

by Clare Hunter
Thank you Ben, this course has some of the best content I have come across. It beautifully explains how to set boundaries in a clear consistent way that still manages to maintain, or even enhance, the horse/ person relationship. No bullying or force, just gentle yet effective boundaries that are easy for the horse to understand. I wish that all horse owners, handlers and professionals could get to experience this course and discover that there is a nice way to say "don't do that, do this instead" to the horse. A nice blend of actual scientific theory supported by practical applications. Thanks Ben from the horses and myself.
