EQUINE CLICKER TRAINING - Getting Started Part 1/3 Presented by Jessica Gonzalez

Date: Thursday, March 1, 2018 
            7:00-8:00 PM (EST)

Hosted by: Pet Professional Guild

This is the first part of a three part webinar focused on building a strong foundation of clicker training with your horse. Michelle Martiya and Alize Muckensturm will be presenting the other two parts. We aim to give you the tools to get started actively working with your horses with positive reinforcement.

Part one will be focused on teaching your horse to stand calmly facing forward. For horses who are comfortable around humans who know how to take treats from your hand, this is a valuable first skill to start with. It teaches the horse how to relax and be comfortable around food while you condition your bridge signal. This becomes a safe default behavior you can use to teach stimulus control on all future behaviors you teach. From here Alize will help you teach your horse how to touch a target which can be used to shape future behaviors. Michelle will go over helping horses who are not yet ready for this step to become comfortable and ready to work with humans.

Objective

  • How to safely and effectively get started using positive reinforcement with your equine. Focusing on teaching the horse how to stand calmly facing forward. Building a clicker training foundation with your horse
