"Oi Shawna. Did it yesterday without clicker, just with my voice, on a horse freaking out because the stormwind rattled in the trees and at the door of the covered ring I used to do some ground work. And the horse came again and again to the noisy corner, and finally stopped flying away at the next rattle... Great experience! I like your clear way of explaining and showing things!" -Helene

Video: "Positively Simple Sheath Cleaning"

Positively Simple Sheath Cleaning DVDI have been surprised by the response I have received about this topic so far. Let's just say sheath cleaning isn't usually discussed around the dinner table! There is definitely a lack of good instruction on how to safely get this accomplished even though people have been quite ready and willing to learn. Well, I decided to make a DVD... it is high time we take the mystery out of this simple task!

In this video, I will show you how to handle and clean your horse's sheath as well as where to find the "bean". More importantly, you will learn how to teach him to stand quietly while you handle these sensitive areas on his body. This will result in a skill that you can use over and over, not just for his sheath but for any area where he seems to be reactive or protective. Using positive reinforcement, you can teach him to choose to be relaxed and calm during the entire process.

Video: "Calm and Confident Clipping"

Calm and Confident Clipping DVDTeach your horse to stand quiet and relaxed while he is being clipped... even the sensitive areas! No more medication, no more twitching and no more frantic horses. You will have the calm horse you always wanted, without resistance, pressure or coercion.

Using the proven principles of positive reinforcement you can change your horse's attitude, from one of suspicion to one of trust. You will be adding something to the training equation that your horse values. He will choose to be a part of the training because he will become invested in the outcome. The best part is that you will be building a better relationship during the process.

The DVD shows the different stages of clipping. The real focus is on teaching your horse to stand quietly throughout the process. I will also address some of the issues that can make clipping an unpleasant experience for your horse and how to remedy them.
