Tik Maynard Teaches Understanding Horse Behavior


Learn to Think Like Your Horse

Horses are not humans, and yet so often, we expect them to be able to process the world just as we do, and are often upset when "silly" or "dumb" things spook or frighten them. In this Masterclass, Tik Maynard goes in-depth on how your horse actually perceives their world, and teaches you how to meet them at their level for better understanding, respect, and ultimately, a much better relationship.

Understanding Horse Behavior Lesson Plan

Learn the fundamentals of horse behavior. 

Build on the first lesson by exploring more deeply the concepts and theories behind it. 

Now that we know the basics of horse behavior, learn how human behavior influences it, and what that might mean for our interactions with them. 

These two fundamental pillars dictate how we interact with our horses at any given time - learn the whys and hows behind them. 

Horses are living creates, and as such deserve some of the same basic tenants of respect as you give other people. Tik explains how horse's view space and their sense of selves so you can be respectful of both. 

Learn the difference between giving your horse treats with no strategy or plan, and using the things that motivate them to reinforce behaviors you want to see more of. 

Tik explains how to identify issues before they even happen, so that you can interact with your horse from a positive place instead of a reactive one. 

Banish the days of working with your horse for hours, and walking away still feeling like you accomplished nothing. Tik shows you how to keep sessions short, sweet, and effective. 

Approach every interaction with your horse as if it's an Olympic sport, and watch how the positive gains over time add up exponentially. 

Tik shows you how to go into training sessions not only being able to accurately assess where you are, but how to clearly identify what you want to be in the future.
