“I am pleased to be able to recommend Beyond a Whisper: Training Horses with a New Language from The Behaviourist. I feel sure that the welfare of the horse is more safeguarded than ever.” — From the Foreword by Andrew McLean, Dip Ed, BSc, PhD, of the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre, and author of The Truth About Horses Ryan has developed his training program, Connective Horsemanship®, using a marriage of science and tradition. He develops a simple language for the rider and the horse, this language and his methods lead to a “deletion” of incorrect or so-called “bad” behaviour. Connective Horsemanship crosses all disciplines. Using an easy to understand commonsense approach Ryan provided straightforward instructions on rehabilitating and retraining horses with behaviour such as bucking, rearing, bolting, kicking, and refusing to load. Through experience and study with some of the biggest names in equine and animal behavioural research, Ryan has developed a way to safely work with your horse until you “delete” his “bad” behaviour and replace it with a desirable one. Ryan believes that all “bad” behaviour is directly related to a poor Go response, or an insufficient Stop response. Through appropriate training you’ll learn to “meet your horse in the middle” of the language barrier and reaffirm, Go, Stop, and the other Basic Controls: turning left and right, backing up, and standing still. You’ll use “The Station Game” to gradually build upon what your horse already knows in order to achieve success in new and challenging areas. And you’ll get specific retraining tips for the most common behavioural problems Ryan sees in his clinics and on his well-known show on RFD-TV: “space invading”; head shyness; problems with handling the horse’s feet; kicking; trailer loading; bolting; bucking; and separation anxiety. Refreshingly, you won’t need any expensive tools or special toys to teach your horse what he needs to know—just a safe enclosure and the well-fitted equipment you already own. And you don’t have to worry about some elusive training ability that you aren’t sure you have—Ryan’s methods are easy to understand, practical, and safe. His Connective Horsemanship® is the only popular training method today that can be backed up with tried-and-true scientific research. About the Author Ryan Gingerich began his professional horse career as a trail guide then completed a national training certification program where he continued working after graduation. His ability to work with troubled horses was put to good use there, and he developed a bond with these horses that today has him branded as “The Behaviourist.” This title was earned not only through his natural ability but through study and the application of scientific research into horse behaviour. Ryan’s mentor, Dr. Andrew Mclean, Director of the Australian Equine Behaviour Centre (AEBC), played a large part in the development of Ryan’s methods. They continue to share knowledge today. Ryan has developed his training program, Connective Horsemanship®, using a marriage of science and tradition. His intent is to cultivate a simple language for the rider and the horse. When used correctly, this language and his methods lead to a “deletion” of incorrect or so-called “bad” behaviour. Connective Horsemanship crosses all disciplines and is used at Ryan’s National Equine Behavior Center in Troy, Missouri, to train and rehabilitate every breed of horse, from off-the-track Thoroughbreds to Quarter Horses.
