Focusing On Proprioception & Body Awareness
Equispeak Aware helps the horse become more aware of how to use their own body to improve core strength, topline, balance and overall strength.
Have you ever watched a gymnast and wondered in awe what it would feel like to have that much body awareness and control? EquiSpeak Aware helps your horse become more like the gymnast, or helps restore him to a young horse before injury, incorrect training or old age started to affect his movements and the joy of motion.
Discover how to do this using clicker training, shaping and our unique approach to the classical groundwork exercises for horses.
It starts with simple leg lifts and proceeds to work on platforms.Then we add in shaped belly lifts and rock backs that can be taken all the way into the school halt.It is all done in the spirit of play and fun while helping the horse to regain their joy of moving and feeling their bodies. From here we proceed to play with our own unique way of introducing and utilizing the classical inhand and groundwork exercises for horses used by classical horse trainers for centuries but without the pressure and frustration.
EquiSpeak Aware may be started after the initial introduction of the work in Equispeak Modules 1 & 2. As long as you and your horse have a clear understanding of the marker signal and have the first two letters of alphabet mastered, you can progress with some of the groundwork exercises used in classical horse training exercises taught with shaping and clicker training, force free seen here.
