March 2021 Retraining your OTT Standardbred Clinic with Dr Kate Fenner

This two day clinic was designed to build happy and confident off-the-track riding horses.

The aim was to help participants to take their horse to the next level, whether he or she is just off the track or a seasoned performer.

If your horse lacks confidence or gets anxious at times. If you would you like your horse to be more relaxed, soft and attentive. These clinics teach you how to optimize your horse’s learning experience by engaging them with the lesson and prioritizing relaxation.

The clinics are designed specifically for off the track Standardbreds however all equine breeds and participants can benefit and are most welcome to attend or fence sit!

About our clinician, Dr Kate Fenner, of Kandoo Equine.

Kate is an equine scientist (BEqSc (Hons), Charles Sturt University), and researcher with a PhD in horse behaviour and training (Sydney School of Veterinary Science, University of Sydney), equestrian coach (Equestrian Australia and British Horse Society), horse trainer (John and Josh LyonsCertified Trainer). Kate has ridden, trained and competed in Dressage, Jumping, Western and polo in Australia, Europe, USA and Asia. After years of experience starting horses for clients, Kate feels strongly that owners are best served by learning to train their own horses. As a result, she founded Kandoo Equine and has developed a series of ethical, easy tofollow, step-by-step guides that are suitable for horses and riders of all levels.
