Clicker training a horse
Hi. I was wondering if anyone has clicker trained their horse. My mother is going to clicker train mine and i am lookin on things to teach him and if very many people are doing it. Please let me know.

I don't use it because in the beginning too many treats are used IMO.
Technically what you'd do is:

Take a hand full of treats (alot of them) the clicker, then give the horse a treat. And repeat over and over and over and over and over and over and over on and so forth. Then you'll have the horse do put his hoof on a bucket (as an example)...then you'd click and give him a treat. And repeat and repeat and repeat.
And do that until the horse associates the "click" as a treat...then remove the treat.

Personally, I think it's using way too many treats, but that's just me
