In my experience many horses suffer from Equine Confusion or Stress and, depending on the severity of it, the consequences can be very detrimental to their well-being. The sad thing is though that as loving and kind as the owner might be they are often completely unaware of what might be happening to their horse, or what past traumas happened to their horse and the implications this has. Click the button below to take the Equine Stress Test to discover if your horse might be suffering too and find ways to help:
Learn how to connect with your horse in a deep meaningful way and start your training or play time with an amazing relationship. Plus, learn how to do this at Liberty as well.
Learn herd behavior and how to read your horses’ body language as well as how to use your body language and herd dynamics to communicate better with your horse.
Learn how to have an amazing partnership with your horse that will not only promote a deeper friendship, but also a better performance.
Most horsemanship programs concentrate purely on the performance of the horse and how to force him, or pressure him, to do what you want. Here at Polarity Training we take a different approach with the focus on developing the best possible relationship between you and your horse using the scientific study of horses known as Equine Ethology. We do this by learning more about herd behavior, herd dynamics, and looking at the world through your horse’s eyes. After that, everything becomes far easier and more enjoyable – for both of you.Learn More…
A word from Teddie Ziegler, Founder of Polarity Training™ – “Combining scientific research, 40+ years of ‘in the field’ experience and my first hand knowledge of horses, I developed Polarity Training™ to help everyday horse owners bridge the divide between humans and horses to create the relationship that they seek with their own horse.
It’s easy for us humans to forget that we come from the opposite end of the Predator-Prey Spectrum to horses and yet we expect them to bend to our will. What we need to understand is that until we start to communicate with horses on their terms not ours, we won’t be able to develop a real connection with them. And without a real connection, the communication and the companionship will always be missing something.
This situation is then further exasperated because what is being taught by many, many horse trainers has absolutely no basis in Equine Ethology (the science of natural horse behavior). Their advice is often misleading at best and at worst very damaging to the welfare of the horse and has left many horse owners using techniques which lead to Equine Stress.
So using my background in behavioral psychology, I studied the scientific evidence and combined it with my own personal experience to provide an approach for you that is not only scientifically valid, but is also true to my heart and hopefully to yours too.
I really want more people to experience the joy that my students and I do with our horses. That is why I am sharing this information with you, to help you and your horse have the best of what you want in life together.
