Welcome to

The Clicker Center

Changing forever the way we train horses.

What is clicker training? Simply put, it's communication—clear, positive, horse-friendly. With the click, we're saying, "Wow! You got it right!" It is a real "yes! answer" that opens the doors to shared understanding.

This is an educational site. It is truly your Clicker Training Headquarters. From getting started to leading-edge innovations, you'll find them all here.

I love caring for them.

I love my horses.

I love watching them.

I love riding them.

I love sharing my day with them.

For all these reasons, this is why I clicker train.

I have written a new book called JOY Full Horses. I have decided to publish it first in my blog.  To read the book visit: theclickercenterblog.com

The laughter, the understanding, the Joy of horses is what I want to share with you through this website.

Alexandra Kurland is a pioneer and leading voice in the development of clicker training for horses. She is the author of "Clicker Training for Your Horse", "The Click That Teaches: A Step-By-Step Guide in Pictures", "The Click That Teaches: Riding with the Clicker", and "The Click That Teaches" video lesson series.

Ms. Kurland earned her degree from Cornell University where she specialized in animal behavior. She has been teaching and training horses since the mid-1980's. A pioneer in the development of humane training methods, Ms. Kurland began clicker training in the early 1990's. She very quickly recognized the power of clicker training for improving performance, for enhancing the relationship people have with their horses, and for just plain putting fun back into training.
