LEARN HOW TO CONTROL A HORSE'S MOVEMENT BY YOUR BODY POSITION
LEARN TO USE THE LANGUAGE HORSE'S USE TO COMMUNICATION WITH EACH OTHER
Dr. Jim McCall has received national recognition for his innovative training techniques. His system of free lounging has intrigued horse enthusiasts since 1979 when his training system appeared in Practical Horseman and EQUUS. Since that time, Dr. McCall has traveled many times across the United States giving clinics and demos on this unique training system and has been featured on local and national television including ABC's Sportbeat with Howard Cosell, the CBS Morning News and PM Magazine
Dr. McCall's training methods, which have come to be known as "Tackless Training" or "Breaking Without Force", begin with an understanding of how to communicate with horses using a common language built on body positions and expressions. Using this equine language, an unrestrained horse can learn to free lounge (walk trot, canter, stop, back and turn around) within fifteen minutes in a round pen.
As a leading equine educator, behaviorist and horseman, Dr. McCall interprets this horse language as he free lounges a young Thoroughbred, a two year old Quarter stallion, a retired racehorse and a cutting horse. As he trains horses of various ages and abilities, Dr. McCall also shows the importance of modifying the training dialogs to fit each horse's specific needs
