Where to Start?

Welcome to Connection Training!

Shawna, Hannah and Rachel have teamed up to bring you a huge resource on reward-based training, wherever you are in the world.

Our Home Study Courses provide you with STEP-BY-STEP video tutorials through most horsey problems and questions. You can watch them any time to suit yourself…even on your phone down at the barn. Our videos feature owners and horses filmed while actually learning these lessons, so real people in real situations, showing what can go wrong as well as what works. Once you’ve bought a Course, it’s yours to stream for life, so you learn at your own pace. And you can re-visit any video as often as you need to.

You can see terrified horses come to love clipping; baulking horses bounding into the trailer; spooky horses calmly facing down the plastic bag monsters! You can see switched off horses light up and highly strung ones settle, relax and focus. Our combination of clear steps to follow, an emphasis on relaxation during training and a good dollop of rewards makes Connection Training a truly powerful technique! It can even be life-changing.
