Reinforcement Horse Training
B.Sc Agriculture, B.Ed.
Over the last several decades I trained horses every day I could, and during my professional training, I trained several horses each day. This wealth of training with many different horse gives me a deep background to draw from helping you solve issues that may come up in your own training journey. I am a highly experienced horse trainer specializing in clicker training horses and groundwork exercises for horses.
How It Works
Self-Directed Video Training Modules For Horse Training
We offer a self-lead video program that can be done at your own pace. Each module is designed to progress you through four modules as you simultaneously build a better relationship with your horse.
This module covers getting started with food and teaches you how to get your horse to move to a stationary target.
Next steps for stationary target behavior, shaping forward movement, and addressing balance issues from targeting.
Will teach you to add variations to the food delivery system and how to use them to make sure you don't create a statue horse. You will learn about cues and how to build balance and body awareness using my food delivery system.
We will teach you different training plans for having your horse go to and stay on the mat, using dynamic food delivery to train, and moving to a mat independently without you.
* Module 1 includes a 1-hour video lesson with your videos with Monty coaching you.

What Clients Say
I highly recommend Monty if you’re looking for a new way to build a relationship with your horse. Her teachings have increased my understanding and trust with my horses and have shown me how to teach without reverting to coercion and dominance. Monty helps the learner gain keen observational skills, reducing frustration in the learner and minimizing aversive stimuli. I have completed nearly all of the online coursework offered by Monty and Peggy Hogan in the past couple of years and am blown away by my growth as a teacher with my horses.
