How clicker methods train your horse
Clicker training is a POSITIVE training tool. It teaches the horse what TO DO. By giving him something positive TO DO, we eliminate the behaviors we don’t want. Horses of all ages appreciate the clarity and positive outlook that clicker training brings to each lesson.

What can you teach with the Clicker? Anything you want!

Horses are never too young nor too old to learn about clicker training. Everyone can have a clicker super star!

Everyone is a Trainer
Bring out your horse's best performance
A horse trainer is not just someone with years of experience. Everyone who works with horses is a trainer. Whenever you are with your horse, you are training him. You may think you are just leading your horse out to the paddock, but every interaction has training implications. Let clicker training help you build a great relationship and bring out the best performance in your horse.

Clicker Training
Clicker training is a science-based training method. It traces its origins back to the work of B.F. Skinner. Karen Pryor, one of the early pioneers of marine mammal training, coined the term clicker training and helped expand the work into the broader training community. It is now well established as a leading force-free method for training species as diverse as dolphins, dogs, giraffes and even cats! And now clicker training is proving its value with horses. 

In this web site I will show you how to apply the principles and techniques of clicker training to horses.
