A podcast about creating balance, using reward based training techniques with host Angelica Hesselius and guests. Coming from the view on horse training as enrichment we will look at ways to create a relaxed, gymnastically sound horse who wants to train as much as we do. Groundwork, riding, husbandry or vet care training all will work better if our horse´s is in balance. But what do different types of balance look like and how do we create it? This podcast aims to explore different ways of answering these questions as well as talking about the new tools we need to develop training with positive reinforcement techniques.
