Clicker training works just as well for horses as it does for other animals that can be clicker trained. This is because the clicker is a clear ‘Yes!’ signal that tells the horse that he has just performed correctly and that a reward is on its way. Horses love to know when they have done so. This is why clicker training is so successful with them.
Clicker training is often thought of as trick training, and that's one fun application. What isn't so well known is that it has been used successfully to resolve problem behaviours such as refusing to load into a horse box, or being difficult to catch. It's even been applied in competition circles, to refine training and turn on enthusiasm in Olympic level horses, both in show jumping and in dressage! Whatever you do with horses, there is a place for the clicker.
Now in its second edition, Clicker Training for Horses: Foundation Lessons contains extra sections for self assessment, and links to bonus video footage so that you can see some of the lessons in action.
