Learn more about moving from the basic foundations to gymnastic in-hand training and riding (no riding during the course except with your own horse).

Trudi has been using R+ training with equines for over 20 years and loves passing on her skills in a fun and informative way. Trudi’s association with Nine Acres Equestrian began in 2019 when she was invited by Hazel Heaton to host a weekend of workshops. Several visits later Trudi feels very much at home with the ethos of Nine Acres Equestrian and the vision Hazel has for the future.

Very few centres offer students hands on R+ learning with equines so this is a unique opportunity.

  • Preparation for in-hand and ridden work using clicker training
  • Introducing tack
  • Teaching a calm mounting block behaviour
  • Set up perfect learning environments, understand why we need them
  • Desensitising to scary stimuli
  • Introduction to long reining
  • Creating tactile rein cues using R+ based methods
