What Others Are Saying:
The Willing Equine student membership group has made such a great impact in my positive reinforcement journey with my horse! I love being surrounded by such a supportive group of like-minded individuals. I am able to ask questions, share videos, and receive support and feedback to become the best horse-person I can be. The membership group does not only offer training support - there are group discussions about the holistic approaches to caring for our horses, including supplements, enrichment activities and hoof care. I am so grateful to have the constant support of The Willing Equine student membership group!

The Willing Equine’s Foundation Course offers a unique, in-depth introduction to training your horse with positive reinforcement. In this comprehensive three month program you will be immersed in Adele’s process of introducing clicker training to any horse, and you will learn how to create a foundation of communication with your own horse that will set you both up for a lifetime of success. Highly informative and supportive, the Foundation Course focuses on empowering each individual with thorough educational content and personalized feedback that prepares participants to continue to reach new achievements in their training well after the course has ended.
During this course you will learn how to:
Train for success: Avoid frustration for both you and your horse, create emotional balance, smooth mechanics, clear communication, and develop precise and flawless cues.
Balance the art and science of horse training: Learn how to apply the science, personalize training to your individual horse, increase creativity and enjoyment during sessions, and recognize when it's time to try something different.
Develop A Willing Partnership: Create a positive association with training for your horse by setting up your training environment for success, managing expectations, and recognizing discomfort and confusion.
You will also learn how to teach the following behaviors from start to completion... and discover how to apply your knowledge of these behaviors to achieve your horse training goals and dreams!
Following A Target
Twelve hours of personal, real life training footage combined with discussion groups, Q&A’s, workbook exercises, and online coaching replicate an intimate, unedited training environment. In the Foundation Course, participants will feel as if they are standing arena-side as they watch the step by step introduction of positive reinforcement to a novice horse. Between training sessions, recorded discussions invite participants to dive deeper into key topics and concepts.
The course begins with an introduction to the five F's of horse keeping and a look at laying a solid foundation for effective and ethical training practices.
From here the course goes on to explore the theory, science, and application of positive reinforcement training. You will be introduced to Adele's two core concepts and her five foundation behaviors. These five foundation behaviors will provide you with the necessary tools to accomplish training almost anything from new behaviors to problem solving undesirable and dangerous behaviors.
By starting with these five behaviors, you and your horse will strengthen your communication and build a behavior repertoire that will allow you to apply the teachings of the course to reach all of your training goals.
The TWE Foundation Course includes: 12 hours of training videos, three live online group Q&A sessions, access to a dedicated online community group for course participants, and direct, personalized coaching with Adele.
The next course begins on June 1st 2021 and course materials are available up to 6 months from the start date.
