equine clicker training

using precision and positive reinforcement to teach horses and people

Welcome

Are you looking for a better way to train your horse?

Do you want to improve your relationship with your horse?

Would you like to learn how to train your horse with positive reinforcement?

Clicker training is a safe and effective way to use positive reinforcement to teach your horse all the behaviors he needs and build a strong relationship at the same time.  Your horse will learn faster because he is actively trying to learn what you are trying to teach him and you are working together toward a common goal.

There are lot of other articles available under the ARCHIVES, BLOG, and ARTICLES menus. I have articles on most aspects of clicker training from husbandry behaviors to riding.

The book, “Teaching Horses with Positive Reinforcement,” is available as both an e-book and a paperback through Amazon. The tab for “The Book” contains pictures and additional material to accompany the book.
