Melody creates custom coaching, consulting and training, specifically designed to meet your individual needs and the unique needs of your Donkey, horse or mule.

Custom one-on-one training, coaching and consulting includes building equine social skills, how to build the proper paddock or barn, proper diet, general information and health tips, care of hooves and teeth as well as how to find a good farrier and much more.  Understanding the individual needs of donkeys, horses and mules brings tranquility to any farm.

All training, coaching and consulting is done in a ‘virtual’ setting allowing you and your equine to connect on a new level.

What Is A Virtual Trainer, Coach, and Consultant?

A Virtual Trainer, Coach and Consultant is a qualified individual capable of providing one-on-one guidance through a Skype internet connection.  This allows Virtual Trainers and equine owners to connect from any location in the world.

When we are through working together, you will be the Equine Whisperer for your farm.”

When do you need a Virtual Coach, consultant and trainer?

1. If you go to the barn and your donkey, horse or mule walks away from you.

2. If you cannot catch your donkey, horse or mule, or you have no choice but to leave the halter on.  I will teach you how to have the donkey, horse or mule catch you.  Leaving the halter on is dangerous and can cause death via self-mutilation or result in the halter growing into the face.

3. If you cannot pick up their feet and the trimmer (farrier) will not do their feet.  A domesticated equine must have their feet trimmed at least every seven weeks – summer every six weeks.

5. If you cannot take them for a walk.

6. If you cannot ride them.

7. If you cannot teach them to pull a cart.

8. If you cannot take your donkey for a walk/hike carrying your lunch and water.

9. If you cannot send them back into the stall without them wanting to take off.  All equine can learn to walk in, turn and face you and wait for the halter to come off.

10. If you cannot give them treats or feed grain without them becoming aggressive.

11. If you cannot load them in a trailer – this is a must during an emergency.

12. If your donkey, horse or mule drags you when you try to walk them.

13. If you are afraid of your donkey, horse or mule as they turn their butt to you and try to kick or bite you, or worse yet they try to jump on your back or rear up at you.

Your safety is very important.  If you cannot do ‘any’ of the above, your equine is in charge and your safety is at risk.

 

 

 

“All animals are looking for a leader.  I will coach you to become the leader your donkey, horse or mule dreams of having.”  You can do this!
