Shawna Karrasch

Hey folks! Bodhi and I are still around though I have been very busy with grad school and Bodhi has been busy making new friends and enjoying the mild weather. I have some pictures to share and some news but for now I just wanted to share a horse trainer I just became familar with.

Her name is Shawna Karrasch. Her website is here. She has a background in training marine mammals and now applies the same concepts to horses. Talk about a woman after my own heart.
Her website has some great information about how to incorporate positive reinforcement into your training regime. Have any of you heard of her?

Video of a horse free jumping from the horse's perspective


  1. Wow - I think Shawna just commented on a blog I was reading in the last few days. She posted video of a horse she had clicker trained seven years before who totally remembered their training and was so happy and enthusiastic in their work together.

    Must be a sign to check her out!

  2. I don't know much about her, but I'll check her out now :)

    That video made me a little woozy though, weird perspective.

  3. Someone left a comment on one of my posts to watch her videos and I have. Thought the horse jumping with the head cam was pretty interesting. She has some good info on what I'm trying to do now with some of my horses. It's been a while since we've heard from you, glad you're back and good to hear that Bodhi is making friends and having fun.
