Do you wish you could communicate better with your horse? 

                     Do you wish you could have fun with your horse?

                                         Or do you just want to lie around with him?

All these things are possible with a clicker trained horse.  With clicker training, you can teach your horse all the skills he needs and have fun at the same time.  With clicker training, your horse learns faster because he is actively trying to learn what you are trying to teach him.  You are truly working together toward a common goal. 

This site is set up as an educational site to help people learn about clicker training. You will find some basic information in the CLICKER BASICS, FAQ and GETTING STARTED sections.   If you are already clicker training, then you will want to visit the articles section for more advanced topics.  I also share training information on my blog: www.equineclickertraining.wordpress.com and my facebook page:  Equine Clicker Training - Katie Bartlett.

Monthly News for February 2016

Clicker Expo 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio will be the first Expo to have a "horse track" which will be 3 days of presentations specifically about using clicker training with horses.  This is very exciting as we have been asking for more horse presentations for years. If there's enough attendence, they will be adding a "horse track" to other Expos. For more information, visit http://www.clickertraining.com/clickerexpo/cincinnati.

Another great educational opportunity is the Art and Science of Animal Training (ORCA) Conference which will be a 2 day conference this year.   It will be held on February 20-21, 2016 in Irving, Texas (near the Dallas/Fort Worth airport). For most information, visit the conference website:  http://www.artandscienceofanimaltraining.org/.

Training Tip:  When teaching a horse head down,  it is not uncommon for the horse to take a step forward as he drops his head. This is normal grazing behavior and just means it is his pattern.  I find that teaching head lowering using a stationary target placed near the front feet often minimizes this tendency to combine foot movement with lowering the head.
