If loading is a stressful, anxious and overwhelming experience for you and your horse, Kay can offer some excellent and consistent training to help you gain the tools you need for successful and stress free loading. Using equine learning theory and applying the correct signals and rewarding wanted behaviours from our horses, loading can become an enjoyable experience for all. Its vital that we understand that our horses are naturally claustrophobic and respond to fear by flight response, correct handling will enable you to suppress the flight response and produce an obedient, light horse and confident handler. Through many years of first hand battles with Rocky and many a competition missed due to inconsistent handling when loading, Kay has developed a confident yet passionate manner through learning theory thanks to Andrew Mclean and enjoys nothing more than providing other equestrians will the skills to load fear free and happy.
Candy and I arrived at Rockstar in June 2016. We have been welcomed into the REC family and absolutely think Rockstar Equitation Centre is the right home for us. Candy has had her loading and behavioural issues which Kay has assisted and helped retrain Candys experiences to positive rewarding environment where she feels secure and relaxed. For the 3 years i've owned Candy we have had intermittent loading and travel stress. Very severe on occasion. This became very overruling. The thought of travelling her under the stress she created was too frightful for me. Kay has been a shining light... my fairy godmother and confidence producer. We have had several loading and travelling sessions together. Candy has been resistant but kays natural ability to overcome these issues for us and the reward a 17hh warmblood loading and travelling quietly..calmly... and finally I can start our competition career without the fear of whats going to happen. Consistent approach... calm and reward is my key with this mare. I competed recently and was the first outing since retraining that I had her totally relaxed, she behaved impeccably making my outing a very relaxing enjoyable experience.
3 years... yes 3 years without kay... what a waste on my part. Kay has the most fantastic skill set and she can adjust her style to fit each horse and rider individually. Totally love life and love REC.
