Oro Valley, AZ 85704

interests: I have a Quarter Horse that was given to me that I am retraining using a clicker.  I have used it so far to address her fear of trailers, fear of trail riding, ground tying, clipping, and tricks for her mind to keep her busy.  I would welcome any contact from anyone in AZ that does clicker training, as I've been surrounded by people who only traditionally train.

interest: Converting the world to rewarding the good behavior and allowing the bad behavior to extinguish.

(What is the bumper sticker way of saying this?!)  I experimented on the cat, then tried it on my new

horse - communication immediate, and I was freed of the fear of doing something irreparable!

I wish I had known if for my kids, but now they will know it for theirs.  

We have gaited horses and mules and we trail ride and pack.


David Young
Bishop, Ca and Chehalis, Wa
Interests: My goal is a sound, trusting, relationship with my horses, which is why I use Clicker Training for them. And I use my horses exclusively in the back-country, off trail, and, generally in the mountains at altitudes of 5,000 to 13,000 feet altitude. David Young is married to Leigh Shambo of Human-Equine Alliances [HEAL] for Learning, where we do Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy and Learning (people learning about themselves, with the help of horses).   We find that clicker training is an important part of training our therapy horses for maximum “connectivity”. We also believe in long-distance, back country trail riding as a great way to strengthen the bond between horse and human!
