REWARD-BASED & BITLESS
Since 2020, we are Sweden's Ambassadors in the World Bitless Association
Since 2021, we are members of Reward Based Association in Sweden
We use reward-based training when we want to learn new behaviors and reach new goals. This means that we use rewards when we work. We first find out what the horse likes, a good reward does not always have to be candy!
The basis for reward-based training is a good relationship,
and we therefore choose to train the horses completely freely when we start with the basic work from the ground.
This way, the horses can choose when they want to be with us or not!

The H3 method is the tool we work with and it stands for Horse to Horse, Horse to Human, and Human to Horse. When a new horse comes to us, it is the herd of horses that first takes care of him or her and helps to correct it. The H3 method is based on LIMA and is used by us in all training!
LIMA stands for Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive and describes a trainer or behavioral scientist who uses reward-based training to achieve an educational or behavioral change goal. In short, this means that we work to increase the use of positive reinforcement!
We are Sweden's Ambassadors in the World Bitless Association since 2020! This means that we have a national mission to spread and increase knowledge about bitless riding and driving in our elongated country. We will start working locally on these issues and look forward to it!
