The Art and Science of Clicker

 

Training for Horses

 

A positive approach to training equines

 

Clicker training is the most positive approach to animal training currently available. It provides a fast, effective way of increasing communication with our equines. Whether you want to remove bad behaviour, reward new ones, build confidence, improve problem solving skills, or just understand your horse better, clicker training can help.

But how does a small plastic box, bridge the gap between desired behaviour and effective positive reinforcement and in doing so greatly enhance equine-human communication? Ben Hart explains the evolution of clicker training from its use with dogs and marine animals, to its place in horsemanship, and the importance of refining its use for equines. His years of practical experience, gained all over the world, ensure that Ben will answer all the most frequently asked questions, while solving the most common problems that are experienced during clicker training.

Ben bases his approach to training on mutual trust between equine and human, using common sense and honesty to encourage people to follow their own path to training their horse. He relies on a balance of art and science to develop a long-term approach to equine training and behaviour that anyone can use, and that works with horses, donkeys or mules.
