Lots of fun toy ideas!


Way cute! they have a video sampler to show you what their video offers. I like that it gives supply lists and directions to make the stuff, although I do not know that I want my interaction with my horse to be too "exciting." :blush: :smile:

during the AND summer camp I talked with Bianca about Marshall Rosenbergs Nonviolent Communication and how this could give guidelines for good communication also here in the forum. For those interested in it, here some links about it:

They hold annual conferences and look at research on all sorts of areas including clicker training and positive reinforcement and welfare issues.

Link to the proceedings for 2009: http://www.equitationscience.com/Docume ... ey2009.pdf
Report and some pics: http://www.dressageworld.com.au/dressag ... erence.php

Some of it looks quite interesting and its great to see welfare issues being discussed in a more mainstream setting.

Marina, that looks very cool! It's genuinely exciting to see how many places in the world that are thinking about horses and people differently...

Now, how do we get them to get those dang bits out of their horses mouths...
:twisted:
;)

Inch by inch by inch by inch by inch...

Change does happen.

:f: :)

Best,
Leigh

Cynthia Royal, an awesome American trainer. Cynthia rides bareback and bridleless (see the video on her website). She and her husband Tony Royal start and train horses, iincluding some quite extreme stallions, using no restraint: their only tool is a grass reed. As you'd expect, it's greatly about energy, which until I discovered her I thought couldn't be taught. I have found Cynthia to be wonderful at helping others develop their talents - she is not a look-at-me trainer; she's a you-can-do-this-and-here's-the-foundation trainer.

OneGreyHorse, Cynthia Royal was discussed here early last year in this topic:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1004

If there's anything you'd like to add to that thread, we'd be interested to hear it! Thanks! :f:

two links from wich I think they both fit in de AND philosophy:

http://www.huertecilla.net/Eng%20Frameset%20Welkom.htm / http://www.homocaballus.eu
The website is from Peter Bosman, a dutchman who lives in Andalusie (Spain). I went there this year and learned a lot. He knows very very much, also about history from horese riding, sience etc etc. all really based on grounded research he did. What I especially liked is that he really give practical information, an good basis to work on your own way yourself. So not really a method with technicall "buttons" but more like a way of working, living, seeing.
The different with AND is that he not really courages the own initiative of the horse but still has horses with lots to 'say' and really no robots at all. And he works a lot with positive reinforcement en no pressure at all.

Rhe other one is "Terra Natura" school for essential horse communication from Pieter Baalbergen
http://www.terranatura.nl It's a pity the website is only in dutch. I fallowed one of the clinics and they teached a lot about horse behavior and about how you can be a good and respectfull leader. A leader like the caring leaders in the herd so they onderline what a big difference that is comparing to be "the dominant boss". terra Natura is really a lifestyle, and less focussed on training methods...

I just found a very interesting page about biomechanical riding and dressage, it is the homepage of Dr. Nancy Nicholson, a bilogist, that did intensive reserch abotu what is going on in the horses body in the different gaits, in riding, in dressage... She also wrote a book: http://nicholnl.wcp.muohio.edu/dingosbreakfastclub/BioMech/BioMechBook.html

The Page is a bit confusing in the beginning but if you look around you find a lot of very interesting pictures, animations, videos, diagrams and texts.
Here it is: http://nicholnl.wcp.muohio.edu/dingosbreakfastclub/BioMech/BioMechRide1.html
Table of contents: http://nicholnl.wcp.muohio.edu/dingosbreakfastclub/BioMech/BioMechRideContent.html

Only one example, a video of collected canter in free lunging: http://nicholnl.wcp.muohio.edu/dingosbreakfastclub/BioMech/BioMechCanter3.html

And here is a kind of "subpage" with a lot of small videos: http://nicholnl.wcp.muohio.edu/dingosbreakfastclub/BioMech/BioMechVoltes.html
