Positive Reinforcement & Clicker Training Fun Clinic Day
November 6 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$275.00
Positive Reinforcement Training helps establish a communication system between you and your horse. This system is based on knowledge, patience, and empathy. Clicker Training (no clicker needed or used) is a component of this this style of training. It is proven to help solve fear issues and retrain undesirable behaviors quickly and more safely than many traditional methods. It can assist you in breaking through the barriers that prevent you and your horse from finding success in all that you do. This approach to horsemanship makes sense to the horse, creating a tremendous amount of “try” and results in both horse and human staying in a positive and engaging frame of mind. Simple put…….it’s fun!
Clicker Training for horses is a valuable tool that helps promote understanding, desire, and confidence in your horse. This clinic day will introduce the philosophies of this positive reinforcement style of training and the necessary steps to get you started. Treats handed out without intent and mindfulness can create issues, sometimes serious and dangerous ones. Participants will learn the “Don’t mug me.” lesson and how to use different values of treats to keep things interesting and fun, without getting the horse over stimulated. This method of training is proven to be especially helpful in problem areas such as bathing, fly spraying, clipping, trailer loading, standing quiet for mounting, etc. To add in some all important “FUN” we also can use it to teach horses tricks like smiling, picking up a cone, playing fetch, lifting their legs, etc. A fun and informative day awaits you!
