  • Its at Cannington, so only 15 minutes off the M5- not a difficult journey. There are stables available for hire (20 per night including shavings beds) and it should be a really fun event with lots of likeminded people :) Where are you? I had to travel 3hrs for my last clicker training clinic. It would be lovely to meet you x

  • Mid Wales, an hour and a half from Cardiff or Hereford and two hours from Gloucester.  With ponies who've never travalled further than 45 minutes in the trailer.

  • It was great! Hannah is wonderful, very flexible and willing to alter her training plan according to the horse and owner in front of her. The first day we worked with various horses close to my home and trained them in their normal environment. We had a couple of newbies to clicker, a horse with overexcitement and loading issues and Orio who gets anxious in certain parts of the farm. We experimented with multiple clicks, treatless clicks, clickless treats, using play to motivate behaviour instead/as well as food, lateral work and a huge amount of focus on the horse's emotional state and promoting calm, relaxed interaction and preventing over excitement and over arousal. The second day was at Cannington, all the horses were new apart from Orio. We had a couple of newbies, a clipper shy pony, one who wanted to trick train her horse to lie down, one who we worked on leading with and Mr Orio who again I wanted to work with on calmness in new places. Again we covered a lot of topics, really nice to see how Hannah prioritises calmness and relaxation from the first 'click' and prevents frustration and over excitement build-up. Really interesting seeing all the different horse and owner combinations and how Hannah taught them all differently. It was a really great weekend and I learnt so much my head was full to the brim by the time she left!
