PPT101:  The Natural Horse – Listen to the Silence

This first course will explore how the NATURAL HORSE was created and how we can best implement ‘natural husbandry’ in our daily care of our horses. Why? Because a horse that is living as close to his natural state as possible is going to be a calmer, more willing and trusting partner in our lives. And that’s what we all are working towards … a trusting, dependable, safe PARTNER.

This first course will include diet and nutrition of the natural horse, healthcare, natural environment, social and individual Equine behaviors & language as well as an overall view of PPT within the foundational base lines of the training program. This and subsequent courses also offers personal telephone or email coaching of each individual’s challenges.   Through 2 live tele-conferences as well as video submissions each student will have concrete answers that will directly, absolutely and positively affect his or her situation.

  • MODULE 1:  Horsepower – The Natural Horse

    Learn how each aspect of the natural horse, as he is ‘created’, affects everyday situations with him and what you can do to help improve your overall husbandry and training. 

  • MODULE 2:  “They Speak Without Words” – Equine Behavior & Psychology

    Understanding how horses think and why they act/react the way they do goes a long, long way in being able to effectively teach them and help them through domestic situations. This module will explore this aspect of training horses. 

  • MODULE 3:  Beginnings  – Progressive & Positive Partnership Training

    PPT utilizes a combination of different ‘methods’ of teaching horses that Gwen has learned over almost 5 decades of learning and living with them. Utilizing basic equine psychology and weaving it in with intuitive and thoughtful mind-body connections with the horse, Gwen shares the ‘how-to’s’ of her Progressive Equine Partnership Training into an easy-to-understand format that any horse-loving person can pick up and use right away. Find out what role the “Leader” has in establishing a Positive Partnership and how it evolves into a Perfect Partnership with the horse that is coveted throughout the world of horses. Explore simple exercises in which positive reinforcement is used with more conventional GOOD horsemanship to establish a unique, strong bond with the horse that kindles the progressive spiritual connection that naturally evolves. 

  • MODULE 4:  Quiet the Storm – Problem Solving 101

    Got challenges with your horse? Of course you do! We all do – each horse is an individual with individual personalities, experiences, possible traumas and even phobias. Learn to recognize the difference between simple balkiness of the horse and a true phobia. Find out if, perhaps, your horse is feeling physical discomfort somewhere  which precludes appropriate and acceptable behaviors in hand or under saddle. Discover how to deal with that discomfort and, in many cases, relieve it. Learn how to ‘change things up’ when needed and not feel guilty about your own mistakes that you might make!  Specific exercises for specific challenges will be noted and studied as well as how to sequentially ‘think through’ situations with your horse and at the same time, teach your horse how to ‘think through’ situations.

  1. This course, Joy, will encompass lots from the ‘old’ one but will also have lots of ‘new stuff’, too. Videos not only from the course that will be ‘how to’ videos but videos that students can send in for review and lessons, etc. so each student can have very personalized instruction. And even though this is not an ‘online live’ class series I will be having regularly schedule teleconferencing for each series. So, its a bit different and will have lots of new stuff. 🙂
    Email to me re: registering …

  2. I need to take this course again, I took it prior to having brain surgery, and loved it, now I have befriended a 76 year old gentleman who owns 20+ untrained Arabians. I’ve started to work with the five geldings, and at first you could only touch one of them, now with ct I have been able to touch and handle all five of them. I am working specifically now with just one of them, it is easier for me to just focus on one horse at a time, and now would be the perfect time for a refresher on this course
