- Hey. I've been totally addicted to jillybean's Clicker Training thread since last night. The time frame in which I found it is really uncanny, because my old QH just got a stifle injury and I actually bought a clicker last week thinking to work with my dog and cat. But.. I had been pondering doing it with Beau as well. Now that he's definitely not cleared to ride yet, I was thinking clicker training would be PERFECT for him. He caught on IMMEDIATELY when I brought it out today. He learned right away that in order to receive a click+treat, he had to look away from me and/or stand patiently and not mug me for treats. A+. He also caught on pretty much immediately to targeting my empty, open hand to receive another click+treat once he had his manners down.
So basically, I was wondering if I would be able to message you with questions/concerns I had, or if I needed advice along the way? That would be so appreciated.

Posted On: 07-22-2015, 04:57 PMJaydee I am sorry to hear about Flo. Horses like her, the steady eddie who try their best always are hard to find. She sounds like she was worth her weight in gold.Liked On: 05-14-2014, 09:40 PM

Posted On: 05-14-2014, 12:12 PMThere are some great videos for capturing calmness in dogs that I found really useful and can be transitioned to horses very easily. Teaching a 'settle' can be really helpful for horses going in...Liked On: 05-14-2014, 08:25 PM

Posted On: 05-13-2014, 09:21 PMAbsolutely, there is scientific grounding in everything that we do and NR based training is of course still a scientific principle. I just object to people using these technique without the knowledge...Liked On: 05-13-2014, 08:10 PM
