Horse Education For The 21st Century
Equispeak brings positive, science-based horse training to the forefront, and attracts horse trainers, including liberty horse training trainers interested in discovering a powerful and effective training methodology.
Your Horse Training Journey Starts Here
"Passion is a feeling that tells you: this is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn't matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I'm going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy." - Wayne W. Dyer
Introduction To The Equispeak Alphabet
Letters of the Equispeak alphabet are taught through various methods to allow for all learning styles. An example of Equispeak letters are:
“T” = Target & “F” = Food
The basic letters and their variations in 'pronunciation' give you a good working language upon which to move into the advanced modules.
We begin with liberty horse training combined with clicker training, to make you a better horse trainer.
Progressing Through The Modules
The Equispeak letters can be combined to form words that will become the lyrics to the “song” you wish to “dance” to. Describing a "song/dance" analogy helps you picture where you are heading in your horse training journey.
The modules containing the letters are presented in small progressions to allow for what can be error free learning, the ultimate goal for a great horse trainer. However there are solutions to common training challenges which are also covered in the modules.
The focus is always on the use of clicker training to make you a great horse trainer.
Advancing to Specific Tasks
Once you have established letters in your vocabulary there will be mini modules available on specific tasks such as haltering, hoof lifts and trailer loading.
Equispeak videos show actual horse training lessons where the logic behind solutions to training challenges is clearly demonstrated using positive reinforcement also known as clicker training.
You are working toward a foundation to build simple but useful words (behaviors), using the letters and a few of their variations.
At the end of the Modules you have the foundation to build on the horse's body awareness and the balance necessary to keep the rider and horse healthy and sound. Future modules focus on groundwork exercises for horses and their trainers.
