Constructional Approach Training for Horses (C.A.T. – H)

Constructional Approach Training for Horses (C.A.T. – H)

Recentelijk kwam de term:  C.A.TConstructional Approach Training CAT for horses is complicated in its simplicity. The difference is in the control – in CAT for horses we remain below our horse’s anxiety at all times. We present the trigger of fear to our horse under our horse’s level of anxiety – in other words at a distance where our horse is aware of its presence but does feel the need to leave in order to attain greater distance between themselves and the object (or person). The beauty here is that we never elevate our horses’ anxiety levels. By remaining below the threshold of anxiety and reinforcing a calm behaviour by giving the horse distance by walking away when our horse offers a calming behaviour it gives our horse the control they need to ensure that they remain calm at every step of the process. A calm signal can be anything from swatting a fly from their skin to lowering their head on presentation of the object or person they are afraid of.  voorbij in een vorm van training.

Met wat speurwerk kwam daar een mooie duidelijk uitleg met video’s naar boven , te vinden op internet:

My thoughts behind the madness of introducing a plastic bag to our horse

I was thinking a while back that there are so many rituals in horse training it can get a little hard sometimes to work out why in so many videos, DVD’s, youtube clips and books people want to ‘flag’ their horse with a plastic bag. Some explain that it done in order to ‘despook’ their horse; some use it to create impulsion; some under the guise of lengthening their arm; others still suggest that a plastic bag might fly into the dressage ring at an event and they want their horse used to it. But I have never seen it done as kindly as I would like. I have seen trials of flooding (when our horses anxiety levels are so high, they have no choice but to stand and cop it), I have seen reasonable trials of desensitisation (or approach and retreat) but never where our horse’s anxiety is not raised first.

So I wondered whether it was possible to introduce a horse to a plastic bag under a threshold of anxiety with tools that I have in my toolbox of training aids: Constructional Approach TrainingConstructional Approach Training CAT for horses is complicated in its simplicity.

I think it is.

Dit spreekt mij erg aan, juist omdat ik veel heb gewerkt met flooding, en resultaat meestal tegenviel, omdat je moet blijven herhalen en herhalen.
C.A.T  is wellicht een andere manier , en  paard vriendelijker in de overgang naar R+

Vooral het proces kunnen volgen van C.A.T naar +R, is boeiend om te zien in deze video reeks.
