When working with your horse in the big world, there may be times when you need to toggle between positive (R+) and negative (R-) reinforcement. If you can't figure out a way to accomplish your goals with only R+....keeping this principle (LIMA) as a benchmark, it will help you navigate until an R+ solution is available to you.
Keeping the enviro fresh and safe👍
Best Friends Forever!
It's so great when equine ties and relationships can be maintained for life.
Not common and not easy. When a new horse comes to your life, give it time to adjust and find its emotional footing. If you move your horse to a new situation, be prepared for changes in behavior.
Prime location in Los Angeles City for not only equestrian activities but also influencer photo shoots, special events and film.

Nalani is an unbacked three year old that has been with us for a couple of months. We're using clicker training to introduce novel concepts and encourage her training as she starts off her job as a riding horse.
This video is a small example of the process. Here Patricia is using a cone as a target, the idea being that a target can then be used for other training, such as being able to stand at a mounting block. The whole idea is new to Nalani so its interesting to see the process of tiny steps needed to help her understand and learn the behaviour that's desired. She's a smart cookie however and is making good process!
The clicker tags the moment of the desired behaviour and she is rewarded, with repetition the horse understands that the clicker means good things happen and therefore is more likely to repeat the desired behaviour. It's all about the science of animal behaviour and we use clicker training/positive reinforcement to support the horses (and people's) learning.
Want to know more? Contact us and we'll help! Apologies for the camera person's erratic finger!
Beauties....can we be friends?
Training the trainers. Keep learning and discovering.
The sun set the high rises downtown on fire! 🔥A special moment on the LA riverbank ride.🐴
That left to right lead change over the jump is starting to gel. The young horse starting to focus and plan ahead. At least some of the time😉
Steady and thoughtful riding from @clea.lerner and Hannah Learner in the irons. 🤩
Posture, body language, and biomechanics. Who can read what their horse is feeling? Is your horse telling you things? Have you enjoyed or missed the signals? Is your horse allowed to tell you how they feel? This is hard. But it is what attracts us to horses. Two separate species and no verbal language. If you have a horse, you are taking a deep dive in interspecies communication!
I hope I can help you with that journey.
It's time to get back out in the world.
Let me know if we can organize a clinic in your area?
DM or see contact in bio🐴

The top hat dates this photo. 🎩 This is one of my favorite horses.🦄 A westfalian mare.
I've had a lot of success with mares....even chestnut mares!
During the 3 day virtual Clicker Expo Live i was able to get a couple of the mares out to the park public arena for exercise and exposure.
Here a lady sneaks up on the horses with her bicycle. 🚵♀️
2 year old Olani was briefly startled but didn't go very far away.
Curiosity won out as the two horses realized there were more cyclists approaching.
I was happy to see them both happy with some social time and interested in park activities. 🐎🐎
Being able to work and follow some of the leading animal behavior trainers and scientist during the conference was wonderful. ❤
Plus I have 3 days of conference lectures and demos to replay all year!
Thanks to you all!🥕🍎🥕🍎🥕
2 year old filly Olani put her big girl pants on this morning and went to the big public arena and had a great romp!
Riding in winter. The perks are perky horses and amazing cloud backgrounds. Have a great day
Daddy update. Nalani and Olani poppa in the snow.
This was sunrise this morning. I'm so happy when i don't miss these brief moments. A few seconds later the sky was orange and suddenly gone to dull grey. What a way to get the day started.
Limelight had a spa day! He is aged and has PPID (Cushings) metabolic disorder. He grows an enormous amount of hair in the winter, even on medication.
He cant do anything without sweating including just standing in the shade eating. So the body clip is a huge relief and he looks the part of a new show horse again.
Limelight after his spa day! Such a relief to get the hair off!
Thanks Jose for doing the dirty work!
This partnership is coming along. Beginner rider Esther with new lesson horse Bella starting to gel in the new year.
Bye bye 2021....here is to good friends in good times and bad. We all know that the last 2 years have seen much of both for all of us!
It's the new year today! Looking back at 2021 and feeling grateful for all the new people that have joined my life through horses! It's a theme for my whole life that my best relationships all start with a horse somewhere in the genesis.
Come along old friends and new friends, let's keep galloping along together, let's enjoy the beauty in our lives, let's rejoice in the lives of our horses we are so lucky to know.
I am looking forward to 2022 and hope you all have a happy successful and healthy new year!
