Never again lack motivation and ideas of what to do in your horse's training.

Do you often wonder what you can do with your horse that’s fun, keeps things interesting and at the same time deepens your connection with your horse?

Do you wonder what to do with your young horse before you start riding? What's your horse ready to learn? How much is too much? Too little?

Or do you wonder how to fix some of the missing pieces in your horse’s training – how to go back to strengthening your foundation?

After a long, busy day, it can be hard to find the motivation to go out and work with your horse. Especially if you don’t have a clear plan of what you could and should be working on.



You want your horse to have a solid smooth start and good foundation. You also want to keep it fun and interesting because at the end of the day, the most important thing is your relationship. You want your horse to trust and connect with you.

There is so much information out there about training horses, it can be difficult to work out where to start and what to focus on. It’s also easy to think “I’m not good enough to train my horse myself, I don’t have enough experience”. When you see trainers make it look so easy and effortless it’s easy to lose your confidence in your own ability.     

What if you could have clear guidance on how to progress you horse’s training? Would it help you to have the ideas and support of how to help your horse develop a solid foundation? In a way that’s easy to follow, doesn’t require hours of your time and actually makes sense….

Join our 3 month Foundation Training Program

Our online Foundation Training Program will put the motivation back into your training. Rather than giving you hundreds of hours of training videos and bombarding you with information, we will personally guide your journey of building your horse's foundation. Whether you have a young horse and looking for ideas of what and how much to do in your training to prepare your horse for a long, sound ridden career. Or whether you have a ridden horse who's missing a few pieces in his education and you're looking for confidence to overcome some training problems and improve your communication. Our Program will focus and accelerate your learning to save you time that you can spend with your horse instead. 

Here’s What You’ll Get When You Sign Up

Our 3 month program kicks off on the 4th of May 2020. You'll get access to our private Facebook group where all participants get to  know and support each other. Each week you'll receive a detailed video demonstrating the week's designated training principle and exercises. Each week builds on the next in our step-by-step program, starting from basic groundwork to ridden exercises - all geared to creating a rock solid foundation for you and your horse. Every week there will be a live Q&A call where we answer your questions and provide feedback on your progress.

Weekly Training Videos & Worksheets

Each week you'll get a video to demonstrate the exercises and training principles to focus on for the week. There will be no ‘fluff’ or set-ups. You get to see real demos and honest results, not horses that ‘can do it all’ already. The videos are focused and info-packed and won't waste your valuable time. You'll also get a handy worksheet to print to help you take the lessons to your horse.

Live Q&A Sessions

There will be weekly live question and answer sessions in our private Facebook group where you can have all your burning questions answered. In addition, our live Q&A sessions will also cover common training problems and different ways of approaching them from a real life perspective. These sessions will be supported by bonus videos and teaching to focus directly on issues that have been raised by participants during the program. 

Supportive Community

Once you're enrolled you'll get exclusive access to our private Facebook Group. There you get to hang out in a great supportive community of horse owners dedicated to good horsemanship, sharing their passion. You can learn from other participants and share your own wins and lessons in an environment where you won't be judged or criticised for having a go and not being perfect. 

Feedback on your training

Want to know if you're on the right track with your training? Need some feedback on how you're progressing with the training exercises in the Program? No problem. You can share videos and photos of your progress in our dedicated Facebook group and receive direct feedback, comments and suggestions to help you get the most out of the Program and advance your training.

Here’s what people are saying about our Foundation Training

KATE

Friendly, supportive, approachable

Maike and Andrew are the most friendly, supportive, approachable team. I’m a beginner rider who has been welcomed into the horse community with open arms thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and resources.

NATALIE

Learn from anywhere

Love that I am sitting in my paddock with my horses watching this.... awesome way to start the day????

HELEN

Balanced, kind and practical

Love your horse-centred approach, which is balanced, kind and practical - teaching them and us in a gentle, clear manner. I love 'reward the try' and 'do as little as possible and as much as necessary'.

Here is what we'll cover in the Program

Each month will build on the next. All exercises are relevant for young and older horses. 

Do you have a young horse who's not started under saddle yet? Not riding your horse for other reasons? No problem - all ridden exercises in Month 3 will have a non-riding option so you will still have plenty to do with your horse.

1

1st Month: Foundation Groundwork

Groundwork is super important to help you build your horse’s solid foundation. While the 'physical' components of groundwork exercises are relevant, it's equally important to focus on your horse's mental relaxation and willingness to participate without being anxious or disconnected (ie. letting their body go through the motions but mentally 'checking out'). The way you’ll be taught to work with your horse on the ground in this Program is all about building your connection with your horse, improving your communication skills and having fun together! All our groundwork exercises also take into consideration the horse's biomechanics to maintain long term soundness.

2

2nd Month: Preparation for Riding

In our second month we will build on the foundation groundwork and start preparing your horse to work under saddle (or to fix issues that you may be having under saddle). A big part of this preparation is helping your horse develop self-carriage and build and strengthen the correct muscles needed to carry a rider without developing many of the common problems in modern riding horses like kissing spine. Emphasis will be placed on lateral movements and how to learn and then teach these to your horse step-by-step. Further focus will be on understanding the horse's footfalls to help you improve the timing of your aids. Everything you learn this month will directly relate to what you will be working on under saddle.

3

3rd Month: Ridden Foundation Training 

Now it's time to get in the saddle if your horse is old enough and has already been started. What we focus on this month will be perfect if you have a green horse to start building on that foundation but will also be great for your older horse who might have got a bit dull or heavy in the hand or not as responsive as you would like. If your horse is not ready to be ridden because he's still young, hasn't been started yet or any other reason, such as an injury, this month is perfect to further build your foundation and focus on refinement, softness and relaxation. All training will have ridden and non-ridden options. 

Bonus

Check out these great bonuses

In addition to all the features in our Program, we also have these awesome bonuses in store.

Bonus 1
Monthly Guest Trainers

Each month we will feature an exclusive interview and Q&A session with an international horseman or woman. We have hand-picked these mentors for their amazing skills and ability to teach important principles about foundation training of horses.


Our features guest trainers include Belinda Bolsenbroek (The Art of Horsemanship) and John Saint Ryan (Author of A Voice for the Horse).


Bonus 2
1 on 1 Coaching 

As a participant in our Program you will receive a private one hour coaching session with Andrew. If you live in Western Australia and can travel to us, you can take up this bonus in person with your horse.


If you live anywhere else or can't travel you will receive a virtual private lesson with Andrew. This is a great opportunity to receive specific guidance on something you would like to learn or a problem that you would like help with.   


Bonus 3
Training Case Studies

A great way to learn is by seeing examples in action, not just hearing about them in theory. As another bonus for our Program, we will share regular stories and case studies of horses who we have trained and helped through specific issues. 


This will help you to see how our foundation training principles can be applied in different contexts, for different horses and different problems. Case studies include anxious horses, bucking under saddle, problems loading on a horse trailer, etc.

About AMT Equestrian 

AMT Equestrian is managed by Andrew and Maike Turnbull who share a love and passion for helping horses get along better with humans and helping humans to become more connected, skilful and understanding with horses. Together Andrew and Maike have a unique skill set to empower horse owners with knowledge, skills and wisdom to deepen their relationship with their horse and progress on their horsemanship journey.


Andrew combines the art of horsemanship with modern science focusing on biomechanics and classical dressage as taught by the 'old masters' which has been largely lost in the modern world. Andrew works with an open heart, seeking that ultimate connection and feel between horse and human that lies beyond words. Each year Andrew rides and trains with world renowned horsemen and women and learns from other professionals to continuously build on his knowledge, skills and awareness.


Andrew loves helping horse owners bring out the best in themselves and their horses - showing them that they are in fact much more capable to train their own horses than they give themselves credit. 



Here’s what people are saying about Andrew

Carol

Horse Owner

 Talented, knowledgeable and compassionate Horseman

I have known Andrew Turnbull for two years as my teacher, friend and one of my horsemanship mentors. Over the past twelve years of my horsemanship journey, Andrew stands out as a talented, knowledgeable, hardworking, compassionate horseman. His passion and commitment to horses and their humans is outstanding, He supports and encourages people and their horses to be the best they can be using tools and information at an appropriate level. Andrew promotes great communication with your horse, and the lighter the better.

John Saint Ryan

Horsemanship Clinician, Mentor

 Balanced, kind and practical

Andrew Turnbull has a wonderful talent with horses. Not only as a trainer but as a person who cares deeply for the horses in his charge In today’s world there is so much emphasis on advertising hype and self promotion but unfortunately this does not always present the best care and consideration for the horse . Andrew has been working with horses for many years and has studied hard to gain the valuable insights and understanding that he has. Having said that, he continues to research and learn more as new concepts are discovered which promote more educational, humane and ethical ways of working with horses. This is why I highly recommend Andrew Turnbull.

Can you afford to miss out on this Program?

Of course you could spend the next 3 months training your horse on your own. There are hundreds of free horse training resources available on the internet.


The problem is not finding information about horse training, the problem is having that information presented in a way that you can apply it to your horse in your situation and get results.


Results to us mean that you are deepening your bond with your horse, that your communication skills get better and your horse is motivated and can understand what you’re asking. You work together with your horse as a team and your connection keeps on getting better. It takes less effort to ask your horse to respond to you and your horse gets softer and lighter to your cues. Your horse WANTS to be with you and enjoys your training without stress or anxiety.


We’ve helped hundreds of horse owners to achieve these results with their horses. If you apply what you learn you will be amazed how quickly your training can progress.

Sending your horse to a trainer to have foundation training will cost you more than $1000. And the problem is, you also need to learn these important horsemanship skills otherwise how can you maintain your horse’s training?


Andrew normally charges $110 per hour for horsemanship lessons and by joining our Program you not only receive a FREE one-on-one coaching session with Andrew, you also get many hours of Andrew teaching you the important foundation training skills step-by-step so that you can master them yourself.

Suzanne and Bella

I started working with Andrew with my 12-year-old mare Bella. I'm a novice horse owner and rider and had purchased Bella as a green broken former brood mare who had, as it turns out, little in the way of training and education.


Bella and I worked with Andrew on a weekly basis, purely focusing on ground work, building trust, respect and understanding. Andrew has a lovely way about him and I guess that’s why all horses seem to love him! When working with horses Andrew is calm and respectful. 


He is a careful observer of the horse’s energy and body language and is astute at knowing when a horse is comfortable and ready to move on with something new or when they need more time, or something else to help them.

Andrew very quickly understood Bella and what she needed from me and then was able to teach me the skills I needed to be an effective equine partner. Gaining control and confidence of working with Bella on the ground was a big milestone for me and one which I now understand is critically important to everything else you do with a horse.

I am so grateful that Bella and I found Andrew. He has, and continues to, teach me the foundation skills of what my horse needs from me and to foster our partnership. He is giving Bella the education she deserves which respects her individual needs and which will ultimately give her the confidence to do her ‘job’ with confidence.
