"Sue and ALlen's Enlightened Trick Horse Training (the method outlined in the book) is...the first trick-traning method that honors the horse's intelligence and individuality."

 

–Susana Gibson, Founder and Publisher, TrailBLAZER magazine.

 

 

This book helps you create your Ultimate Companion Horse. Create strong emotional links with and enthusiastic responses from your horse that up to now you have only dared to dream.

 

Every specialty move a horse makes is a trick. This includes clearing a jump, sliding to a perfect stop, bowing for an audience. 

 

We show you How to train the moves and also explain WHY each move improves the willingness and yes, happiness of the horse.

 

Horses love to learn with the methods that we've developed over 36 years devoted to Trick Horse Training.

 

Over 300 color photos with dozens of horses of many breeds, sizes and ages show you the step by step details found no where else!

 

  • Pedestal Training—the centerpiece of modern Trick Horse Training.
    Big cats, birds, reptiles, elephants and agility dogs are all trained using a pedestal or “mark.” Horses may benefit from Pedestal Training even more than other species because they are flight animals. The Pedestal gives the horse a safe place to stand and an avenue of expression that doesn’t trigger the flight response.
  • Tricks of Trust include the Obeisance or Circus Bow, the Bow, Kneel and Lie Down. These are moves in which a horse learns to lower his eye and his body in relation to the handler’s, putting him in a position that requires great trust in his handler.
  • Tricks of Engagement include smiling, retrieving an object such as a Frisbee, flag or cap or learning to actually control a big ball.
  • Tricks of Agility include the Salute (Jambette), the Rear and Hind Leg Walk, the Sit Up and Sit Down.
  • Tricks of Gait- Spanish Walk.
  • Liberty Training- Whether it’s one horse working solo, a pair or a troupe of three or more, the horses respond to the handler’s cues without any attachments. 

 

 


Trick Horse Training DVDs

Imagine a Mini DVD

Miniature horses are more popular than ever!

People are partnering with them as therapy pets and service animals and as a more economical alternative to their larger cousins. Miniature horses are more portable, less flighty and can live longer than average sized horses too. They make excellent companion animals for so many reason, and especially so when they are offered a training program designed just for them.

 

The DVD runs an hour and twenty minutes and covers an assortment of training situations and settings viewers can recreate in their home environment. Viewers are also introduced to equipment useful in the training process. Working with three different foals with noticeably distinct equine personalities; Cara, Miko and Sophie, both Allen and Suzanne demonstrate their individual approaches giving the viewer a variety of options they can personalize and make their own.

 

Viewers will learn:

 

  • the value of starting immediately with the new born foal
  • tips on how to manage the mare and foal together and apart
  • training techniques designed specifically for young minis
  • tools that will help your mini learn quickly and quietly
  • tips on how to get fluid free forward movement from your mini from day one
  • fundamentals that can be built on to become amazing tracks and skills
  • how to leverage the unique personality of your mini into desired behaviors
  • how to instill good manners with virtually no force
  • how to invite inquisitive behaviors that can later be shaped into amazing performances
  • how to get started with liberty training
  • how to train in pairs
  • what cues to offer, when and how
  • proper delivery and types of rewards
  • specific activities like: targeting, trailer loading, retrieving and much more

Trick Training Young Horses

The most common request we receive is from folks that want to come to the ranch and watch us train our horses. For many the distance is too great for convenience  so we created this DVD so you can be the "fly on the wall" and follow Allen around as he schools six different young horses through 22 different tricks. This is not a step-by-step instructional video, instead it is a unique opportunity to see what training looks like in real time.

 The second half the the video is an informal performance with three of our adult Liberty horses.  

 There is a wealth of useful knowledge contained in the one of a  kind video.

Pedestal Training

How and Why of Pedestals Training for the Trick Horse.

This just might be the most important behavior you will ever teach your horse!

How Pedestal Training benefits a horse psychologically and helps him be confident yet compliant. All species of animals (except the horse) are trained using a place or mark. Horses understand training that includes objects and with Pedestal Training “the trick becomes the reward”. Pedestal Training benefits the Companion Horse and the  performance horse with everyday activities such as ground tying, trailer loading, veterinary procedures. Trainers of other species all use pedestals and understand WHY to use pedestals but
