Clicker for my Honkers  Sep 15, 2008
I've just begun clicker training (hence 3 stars for now) for my baby donkey and so far, so good. I'm going to continue reading the rest of the book and then training all three of my girls. Thanks for making this possible, they can be rather stubborn at time :-D
Very effective!  Jun 13, 2007
I have read every word in this book, and re-read the directions for using the clicker to reinforce training. It is fascinating, and it works! I was afraid to try it, thinking that conditioned response can be like a razor in a monkey's paw if you don't know what you are doing. But, the author walks you through the process so you can progress as slowly as you want. I tried the initial exercise with my horse, and it was amazing how quickly he caught on! Now I am branching out to real world uses for this process. It is worth reading!
It's not just for horses- it's for people, too!  Oct 8, 2006
If you're thinking of getting your first horse- or if you've already brought it home and are now too intimidated or green to know what to do with it- or maybe you had an accident and have become afraid of horses- this is the #1 most important book you can get to learn how to build your confidence in order to create a relationship of mutual trust and respect.

I remember when I brought home my first horse (I thought she was a monster!) someone recommended this book. Within the first session, we were best friends. Even though I had been giving her treats before, CT put it in a frame of referrence where the horse realizes there's a *formula* for getting treats. (And they figure it out very quickly!) This makes the horse act very eager to please the trainer (you). The more you see your horse acting in predicatble ways, in ways that you ask of it, the more you see your horse taking a positive interest in working with you, you rapidly gain confidence. Within the fist week, I was riding my new horse with total confidence.

You can even accomplish this relatioship building method over the stall door.

To this day, I still use CT- whether I'm starting a young horse or reshaping engrained "bad" or dangerous behaviors of an older horse. There are so many ways CT comes in handy. When a horse gets out of the pasture, all I do is click and it will *always* turn on a dime and come straight to me. If we're riding and there's a garbage can rolling in the road making my horse nervous, all I do it cue her to "touch" (which she knows from experience will result in a click)- she does what I ask, in turn learning the garbage can is no threat, and gets her click and reward. The we can ride on. (Much better than the big snort-fest, trying-to-bolt mess the situation would have been pre-CT!) Your horse doesn't take the bit? CT will very quickly cure that one. Wish your horse would self load on a trailer? In most cases, it would take about one 15 minute CT session to teach a horse to self load. The list goes on. You name the problem, CT can fix it.

Kurland's book is the best one on the subject. You'll be so glad you bought it.

P.S. You don't need to use the little clicker box gadget to do CT. I mimick the clicker box sound with my tongue. I found the clicker tool was never handy when I needed it- so I decided to just skip it and found that clicking with my tongue was just as effective. Just a tip! :0)
Problem solving method for SO many thing  Sep 24, 2006
I recently rescued a former show shetland who was hard to catch, turned his rear end to me when I opened the stall door, was bad with his feet, and was a terrible windsucker. I had bought this book a year earlier but never used the principles (my own horse is "perfect" ha ha). I needed to be able to catch little Pedro reliably, as soon as possible, in the dry lot, so I stabled him and taught him to target a tin can, then to hold his halter ring over the lead rope snap. This took a few minutes a few times a day, over only TWO days. He now comes up to me voluntarily, not just off the dry lot but even OFF the grass, and holds his head out so cute to be caught, even without the clicker. I also used the clicker to reward him for holding his feet still for cleaning and rasping, and now he stands like a champ for "lawn chair farriery". Finally, the "fun" aspect of clicker training created such trust in him that he is far more relaxed and sucks wind FAR less often. I have even used it to reward him for interrupting his habit to walk toward me instead. This simple little method is terrific for the problem horse, it should be dynamite for a good horse who just needs to learn!
So much Fun!  Aug 22, 2006
I am so pleased with the joyful attitudes I see in my horses when I go out to the barn. This approach has opened up so many possibilities for us.
