"Shannon Donnelly at Halfmoon Creek Farm has a unique training style. She truly respects each horse and rider and understands and creates space for growth. Shannon’s coaching methods focus on mindful acceptance of where both my horse and I are at that moment, that day, that lesson- without the fear of harsh correction or pressure. This allows both my mare and I autonomy to stay in a learning mind set. Initially, my mare expected our time to involve pain, pressure and punishment and avoided and/or predicted this would occur. Positive reinforcement (good girl, a scratch on the withers and a relaxed human guiding the way) vs. negative reinforcement (take something away, punishment, physical pressure, poke, prod, yell) allows both my mare and I the freedom to choose and stay focused. Additionally, Shannon teaches observational skills (curiosity) and emotional control between horse and rider. I highly recommend Shannon’s training program at Halfmoon Creek Farm."
