Expand your knowledge and imagination with Professional Instruction from Happy Horse Happy life Instructor/Mentor Jackie Chant. Jackie has the rare ability to decode and demystify horse behaviour .

If YOU are or you know someone who is experiencing everyday issues with horses such as float loading, unreliable tying up, can't pick up & hold feet respectfully for farrier, no ground manners, fearful and spooky, Control issues while riding, then spread the word, this is a clinic not to be missed. Developing a strong foundation of Core behaviours with your young or 'green' horses is the absolute key to your ongoing success as a partnership. This clinic is a ground skills clinic to help you and your horse develop clear communication using body language, horse psychology and a focus on Connection, Relaxation and Responsiveness, which are the Core behaviour modules in the Happy Horse Happy life 'How to talk horse' curriculum.
