Shaping Plans (successive approximation)

Shaping plans are detailed training plans which break down complicated behaviour in to small safe, ethical steps that are easy for the horse, donkey or mule to understand and achieve. The plan builds together to allow you to work with consistency, clarity and safety. No matter your chosen method of training, shaping plans will work for you and your equine as they fit any method of training by breaking down the required behaviour to small manageable steps which you can achieve using your chosen method. Shaping plans are the foundation of safe, ethical sustainable training that let you enjoy the learning journey with your equine.

Content of each shaping plan

Each plan contains in-depth details of general training and considerations for each unique combination of equine and human. Explanations of how to successfully use a shaping plan whatever your method of training. Details of the specific shaping plan, things to watch out for, tips, processes of training, safety and an overview of the specific training plan. The shaping plan itself, with a goal and small clear ethical steps that you can print off and use to guide your training safely to your goal.
