I love getting the chance to show off my own fabulous horses (not that I’m biased!), so I was delighted to be contacted by Ellie Fells, journalist for the Trot On equine social media website, for an interview about CT. I was even more delighted when it turned out she only lives an hour down the road so could come and see my horses and I in person!
It was a bit of a mizzly wintery day, but we wrapped up and headed out to the arena to work with India, my WB mare. Ellie was pretty new toreward-based horse training, so India and I got to show and explain the basic concepts as well as some of our more advanced work such as in-hand work, Spanish walk, ridden work and India’s favourite, Freejumping.Then we headed inside for a cuppa and some more CT talk, where Ellie asked some great questions about the hows and whys of positive horse training.

India has grown up with me, so we’ve developed a great bond over the years. However, she does struggle with sugar sensitivity and seasons, making her sore, stiff and a bit unpredictable. Reward-based training has been brilliant for her because it’s helped to keep her focused, motivated and relaxed, even when it’s been tough for her physically. CT isn’t a magic cure, but it has absolutely given us the necessary communication, emotional balance and motivation to make great progress and have a ton of fun along the way! As you can see from these blogs, we’ve managed to work through all this and train some pretty cool stuff:
