6 Day R+ Intensive Workshops

Limited to 9 participants, Shawna’s Intensive Workshops are for those who want an immersive learning experience with Positive Reinforcement Training. We want you to go home feeling confident that you can apply your new skills on your own. You’ll experience 5 hours each day of watching and participating in hands-on training and coaching, including a Break Day to rest and experience beautiful northern New Mexico, along with two evenings of dinner and discussion with Shawna.

Master & Journeyman Course Packages

Training with a clicker is as simple as sitting on a horse, right? Simple—and complex! Training well using Positive Reinforcement requires time, self-discipline, physical skill, experience, and mental creativity. And it’s incredibly fun. Nothing replaces in-person learning, with repeated submersion in both the science and the art of Positive Reinforcement with an expert teacher. If your goal is to excel at R+ training plus have the confidence and skill to teach others, we offer the 2019 Master and Journeyman Courses with Shawna Karrasch.

Scholarships and Financial Assistance

At Terra Nova Equestrian Training Center, we want to build a strong base of skilled practitioners and qualified instructors of positive reinforcement training for equines all over North America. We’ve also witnessed the profound psychological impact of reward-based training of an equine on the human trainer. It’s completely force-free, fun and deeply rewarding. We invite applications for financial assistance for the purpose of attending our clinics and workshops.
