SW FLORIDA : LEE, CHARLOTTE, HENDRY & COLLIER Counties

The cornerstone blocks of a relationship with a horse are essential to lay down correctly. If foundation steps are missed then the holes in that foundation will cause issues down the road. Just as a house with an incomplete foundation cannot stand during a storm, the same applies with horses. Too many horses are found to be missing these cornerstone blocks and the results are not pretty nor acceptable.
If you’ve just gotten a new horse or are having issues with an existing horse, it is almost certain that the horse has not been taught the very initial steps that (s)he needed in order to carry through later learnings. Using no force, little to no restraint and lots of positive reinforcement, Gwen can help you and your horse work through difficult and challenging times in a way that is fun and safe for both of you. From safe and pleasant hoof handling to willing trailer loading and everything in-between, the challenges you face today will be your shining accomplishments tomorrow.

GO HERE: https://www.youtube.com/user/PENZANCEEquine to see how I work with horses of varying issues and challenges.

PENZANCE’s ECBT© is a method of teaching and working with horses (and their owners) using classical and operant conditioning that https://gwenythsantagatedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/earl.jpgchanges the way they think. Changing the way they think changes the way they behave.

Barring any pain issues, behaviors such as:

  • Bucking
  • Rearing
  • Bolting
  • Balking
  • Jigging
  • Biting
  • Resistance
  • Spooking
  • “Disrespect” and other behavioral issues are eliminated with desired behaviors replacing them and embedded into the horse’s responsive thinking in a totally non-forceful and non-aggressive manner. Most of Gwen’s teaching is done in an ‘at liberty’ situation.

ECBT© teaches and trains horses using cognitive thinking exercises and skills to facilitate progress towards desired goals.

Works with the owner to maintain a high degree of collaboration and empathy with the horse.

“What people do not appreciate is that every time a horse submits to pressure, whether subtle or overt, he is diminished……..If he can be persuaded to give his assent freely and pleasurably rather than give into man’s pressure or clever techniques, he is not diminished.” –Frederic Pignon


PENZANCE BODYWORK

 

Using ** PENZANCE BODYWORKS©, Nutrition & Diet, Homeopathy and Herbs plus assessing Husbandry practices, Gwen helps the horse rebalance his own body and mind to the pure, inherent state of health in which the horse is created. When a horse is healthy throughout MIND, BODY & SPIRIT then he can move & perform at his highest levels. Relieving muscles spasms, trigger points, transforming cellular messaging and affecting the structures of deep stress and pain brings the body back into a state of homeostasis (balance) that helps to maintain a constant internal environment even in the face of change.

Gwen also works with the horse’s owners to teach them simple massages that will help keep the horse in perfect health as well as help prevent imbalances that can spoil the horse’s performance.

** Combination of Acupressure, Masterson Method (Neuromuscular Relase), Stretching/Flexing, Stress & Trigger Point Releases, ROMs, TTOUCH, Photonic Therapy, Electro & Energy Acupuncture, Quantum Touch, intuitive hands-on energy healing, Emotional/PTSD release as individual horse requires. Equine Assisted Personal Development Coach

EQUINE ASSISTED PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT COACH

What *is* Equine Assisted Personal Development?  We become better humans when hangin’ out with horses! They are great at helping us to recognize our “Personal Rights” and, as Winston Churchill said —

“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”

So if you’re struggling with changes in your life and need some encouragement and help, would love to simply BE with horses and learn what they have to say about ‘life’, they have ALOT to teach and share with you.  Give us a call. But first, read through “The Personal Bill of Rights” and see what touches your heart the most. The PENZANCE HORSES are GREAT listeners and teachers!
