Her holistic approach includes knowledge and experience from many areas including extensive training with Tai Chi riding, classical riding, her work as an Equine Touch Practitioner and more. She brings this all together with clicker training to create balanced horses and riders, who have fun, solve problems and achieve maximum performance. Her view is “if you can dream it, you can train it!” www.hannahdawsonequine.co.uk

Kay laurenceKay Laurence
Kay founded Learning About Dogs in 2000, following a long career teaching and learning about dogs. She is pioneering in both training people to train their dogs and looking at the whole context in which we keep dogs and thus “need” to train them. We have invited her to this equine conference because of this holistic (and critical) perspective, which we think will be useful for horse trainers to hear. The reports from her presentations are that they encourage deep thinking, challenging what we know (or think we know) and put the animal at the heart of the training.
She is a regular presenter at the Karen Pryor Expos and the University of North Texas ORCA Conference held in the USA and many workshops around the World.
