Behaviour Consultations

My approach to working on behavioural issues is to work with both the client and horse to find a solution that works for both of you. I will provide you with information and training to help you to be able to identify and interpret your horse's body language, provide enrichment for your horse throughout the year, and carry out specific rehabilitative training so that you are confident to carry out these techniques yourself and therefore able to maintain solutions long term.

A primary aim will be to rule out any physiological issues that may be causing pain or discomfort, and I may ask you to consult a vet or other paraprofessional before I undertake any work with your horse. Pain and discomfort can be a common cause of behavioural problems so it's important to identify and address these before undertaking any behavioural interventions.


Often, we will begin by addressing management situations, ensuring that your horse is able to behave like a horse as much as possible, and then working on specific training issues as required. For some horses, a change in routine, and adjustments to diet and housing/turnout can make a huge difference to their psychological welfare and thus reduce the severity of behavioural problems.


Clients are part of the change process, are fully informed on why changes are proposed, and will be part of designing the behaviour modification programme to make sure it is compatible for you and to ensure the best possible outcome. 

I do not use natural horsemanship techniques or specific tack or gadgets for my work.


Your horse is the focus and their welfare is the primary concern.
