I have a clicker and have learned all about clicker training for dogs. I know there's people out there that clicker train there horses ... just curious if any of you do and what the pros cons are for you ?
You may want to read some of Karen Pryor's books on clicker training, she was one of the founders of clicker training and has done alot with horses. Her book reaching the the animal mind, had at lest one or two chapters on horses.
Typically clicker training is used with food however it is a conditioned reinforcer so you could get creative a use a toy, petting or some other means of reward to train your mare MarleyandEllie
I bought a few clickers to use on my mare but never got around to it. I wouldnt hesitate to try it though. It's great for unconfident horses because they get a clear answer on whether they did something right or wrong.. Granted that you're consistent with it. Posted via Mobile Device
