We train with reward-based training when we want to teach new behaviors and reach new goals. This means that we use rewards when we work. This means, that we first find out what the horse likes, a good reward does not always have to be candy, it can also be an object.

The basis for reward-based training is a good relationship,
and we therefore choose to train the horses at the Academy completely freely
when we work them. In this way, the horses can choose when they want to be with us or not!


The H3-method is the tool we work with and it stands for Horse, Horse-Human, Human-Horse. When a new horse arrive at the Academy, it is always the herd that takes care of him or her the first time. The H3-method is based on LIMA 


LIMA means Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive and describes a trainer or a behaviourist that uses reward based training to educate and to reach a goals in training. This means that we also work to increase the use of reward based training methods in general!
