Training Tip Tuesday - Jody Hartstone - Mental Capacities, Understanding Your Horses Brain



This Week's Training Tip Tuesday is Brought to You by

DressageTrainingOnline.com. DressageTrainingOnline.com is presenting a free 7 part video series featuring Jody Hartstone of New Zealand. Part 1 - Understanding how your horse thinks is vital. It doesn't matter what level you ride at, your horse's breed or discipline you specialize in, knowing their capacity for learning, memory and response will greatly enhance your abilities as a trainer and rider. Part 2 - Jody discusses the Flight Response in the horse. Obviously important often misunderstood by humans. It doesn't matter what level you ride at, your horse's breed or discipline you specialize in, knowing more about your horse's flight response is vital in making you a better horseman. Part 3 will explore Habituation. Understanding how horses become comfortable with things is important in not only ensuring you have a safe horse but that you employ habituation as a standard method incorporated into your daily training.

Jody was shortlisted for the Athens Olympics on Landioso and the 2010 WEG qualified rider for Dressage representing New Zealand. Jody teaches and lectures worldwide emphasizing her training based on scientific principles of behavioural theory. "The rider's aids are all trained systematically and one at a time," Hartstone explained. "One should be careful not to apply two cues at once and ensure that the pressure-release aids (reins or legs) are trained effectively before one moves on to subtle aids like the seat. Basically reins are there to slow down, legs to go, reins to turn and leg for yield. Most important is to train the legs of the horse before training its frame. It is very different from what we see in many training yards where horses are sent to. With them rein pressure and reins are no longer effective to slow down the horse's leg. Paramount is self carriage. The horses are taught from breaking in to hold their own rhythm, direction and outline."
