Meet Finn, a 5-year-old off the track thoroughbred Maddy is training for the 2019 Retired Racehorse Project! Finn is coming along well in-hand and at liberty. During the immersion program, Maddy will be continuing to progress Finn both in-hand, at liberty, and under saddle with an emphasis on developing and refining his bridleless riding skills.
It doesn’t get much cuter than Arthur! Arthur is a BLM mule that Maddy is prepping to add to her team. During the immersion program, Maddy will be advancing his skills at liberty as well as putting first rides on Arthur! This will be a great opportunity for students to see her colt starting program in action. If you are looking for a thorough and proven colt starting or re-starting program that honors the horse’s free will, values 2-way communication, and places an emphasis on keeping the horse and human safe throughout the process, you won’t want to miss this!
If you ask Maddy, she will tell you that the mustangs and the zebras have been her teachers. And by watching the zebras at work, you’ll find out why! The zebras present a unique challenge and have inspired her emphasis on positive reinforcement training. Observe Maddy work with her two zebras, Zena and Zeus, as she continues to advance their skills at liberty, teamwork, and desensitization.
Watch fascinating herd dynamics as Maddy continues to advance her team of 6 previously wild mustangs. Through their observation, students will learn about the process of working multiple horses together, as well as choreographing advanced circling routines and other maneuvers at liberty.
I just got back from Madison’s first 5 Day Immersion Program, and I’m just overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for what I’ve learned and the people I’ve met. This was next level learning! It took all of Madison’s online material and catapulted it to a whole new level of understanding and comprehension. What made this program so unique was being able to see first hand how Madison broke down all the steps and consistently progressed the horses training using the 5GR. Pretty much every single question I had coming into this program was answered by either Maddy directly, through group discussions, or visually watching her work the horses. Not only was I gaining knowledge through Q&A and training scenarios, I quickly saw I was able to problem solve situations in my own head following the 5GR as well. Aside from horse training, I found tremendous personal growth through our group discussion with fellow mustangers, and connected with so many amazing individuals during our time together. This experience will forever be written on my heart.
There are very few trainers who are able to explain the equine psychology behind their methods like you do. Your golden rules apply to any situation, so I don’t have to remember a step by step method.
Everytime I watch Madison, I learn something that I can apply to my horses. Madison is truly talented. I have a PhD in teaching and I truly believe Madison is a gifted teacher in addition to being a gifted horse person.
