Equine Clicker Academy Includes:

– Access to the online portal and video training library
This online course is one of a kind. It is not just an equine clicker training course.
I have spent more than 20 years learning, experimenting and practicing with hundreds of horses. I have studied how animals learn and worked not only with horses but also with exotic animals in zoos. I have trained horses from young horses, wild horses and horses with behaviour problems right through to elite performance in dressage, western, liberty and tricks.

This Equine Clicker Academy includes introduction to clicker training, extensive systematic groundwork, desensitizing, handling feet, lunging, long reining, float loading, starting a young horse under saddle, riding with the clicker, liberty training, trick training and problem solving. I use clicker training sometimes on its own and sometimes in combination with horsemanship and classical training so this course is very different to any other clicker training course. I do use combined reinforcement (R- and R+) for some behaviours so if you are wanting a pure R+ only course then this is not the course for you. If you want to teach your horse to be safe and fun on the ground and under saddle as well as having fun teaching tricks and liberty then this course will be perfect for you and your horse.

So far there are over 120 videos demonstrating with a variety of horses. So you don’t have to wonder what to do next with your horse, you can just look at the videos and see what step I would do next.
You can watch the videos on your phone while you are out with your horse and then put them into practice, or you can watch them on your laptop or desktop computer and hook it up to your TV for comfortable viewing in your lounge room. The video library is growing all the time and I have big plans for this platform. There is also so far lots of downloadable .pdf files and text. The online portal is an invaluable resource.

As well as access to the online portal you will also receive: 

 

– Access to a pdf version of my book “How to Click With Your Horse
This book includes: The science of training and how horses learn. Applying science to horse training, introducing your horse to clicker training, groundwork, desensitising, handling feet, float loading, liberty training, solving behaviour problems, long reining, foundation training under saddle with clicker training, riding with the clicker and much more. This is really a comprehensive manual for training your horse with clicker training. This book was so popular that it sold over 1000 copies and sold out. It has been updated and is better than ever, it is now only available exclusively to people who do my online course.

 

– Access to a pdf version of my book “How to teach your horse tricks with Clicker Training”
Includes how to teach your horse tricks including: smile, kiss, picking things up, fetch, soccer, Spanish walk, bow, rear, lay down, and more… inventing your own tricks & combining tricks.

 

– Access to our private Equine Clicker Academy facebook group. 
This is a great way to connect with other like-minded people. Share your story and to make new friends. This is a supportive and inclusive group. You can also learn a lot by following other people’s journeys with their horses and seeing what suggestions I may give them etc.

 

– Advice on diet, care, conditioning and management of your horse.
Achieving your goals with your horse means more than just a good training plan. We will need to look at all aspects of your horse’s care and management to ensure a happy healthy horse and a successful training plan.

 

– Access to personalised help – We can connect via fb video chat or by messenger and talk all about your horse and how things are going and help you make a training plan. You can tell me where you are up to, your goals, any problems you are having and we can make a special training plan for your horse and I can also suggest videos from the training library that you can watch that will help you. The course includes 1  video chat, though I want to help you so I am happy to do more than this when I have time. Particularly if you are needing more support or guidance with an issue, solving a problem or getting to the next stage in your training. I am here to help you. I can also offer advice and suggestions through our private fb group “Equine Clicker Academy”.
All I ask from you is that you keep an open mind and are willing to try the things I suggest and that you will make time to practice.

 

– Option to send me videos of your horse and get feedback on how it is going.
All you need is to prop your phone on a fence and film 5 mins of something you want help with.
You can then post the video on our private facebook group or send me a link to google dropbox, youtube or other equivalent.  I review the video you have sent me. I take notes to give you feedback, we can then make changes to your training plan and guide you towards success.

 

– Lifetime access!
The online course is a self-paced course and you will have lifetime access to the video library for as long as the course is in existence.
So there is no rush and you can access the course whenever it suits you. Whenever you are wondering what to do with your horse next, that is where I come in and give you some inspiration and guidance to help you plan and achieve your next training goals.

So you don’t have to worry if you have a busy lifestyle, there is no time limit. Every horse and human is an individual so how could there possibly be any kind of time limit. The only expectation of you will be that you keep an open mind and try the things I suggest.

You will have lifetime access to the online training portal for as long as the course is inexistence, so once you sign up which means you will also get to see all new videos as I continue to upload them. I have big plans for this portal to include training videos on riding, dressage, jumping, working equitation, trail riding, reining, showing and more…It takes time to make something like this so you will get continued access to it as I continue to expand the site. Also I am a forever student, I am always trying to learn more and improve my own understanding and techniques. I regularly attend behaviour conferences, seminars, lessons, clinics and lectures. As I learn more I will also share with you things I have learned so that you and your horse can benefit as well.  Lifetime access only includes the video library and the private fb group, lifetime access is not going to be available for all customers who sign up forever, this is a limited time opportunity.

Hi Everyone! Well I have just returned from 3 full on weeks of clicker training clinics in NSW and VIC. I would really like to thank everyone involved in the clinics. Especially the following people who helped to organise the clinics, had me stay at their places and helped transport me to and from each clinic destination. Jan Tribe, Chrissie Johnson, Viv Turnor, Jan Sharp, Trish Kruse and Susie Walker. I would also like to thank everyone who turned up at the clinics as participants and spectators. The weather was not so great for the clinics, we had a lot of rain, wind, hail and freezing cold conditions. What impressed me was how keen everyone was to carry on with their lessons and use them as training opportunities. We certainly demonstrated that clicker training can help horses focus even in the most extreme weather conditions.

Step 4. Park - Stand still and stay there The next step is to teach your horse to stand still while you walk away from them. Teaching a horse to stand still and stay there is probably one of the most important and useful things you can...

Step 2. Back Off You should have taught already taught your horse to Look away. The next step to introducing your horse to clicker training is to teach the horse to step backwards away from you.
Step 1. Look Away To begin clicker training the first thing we need to teach the horse is to turn their head away from us to earn a click and treat. It is important that this is the first thing that the horse learns with clicker training because this will keep you safe and will ensure that the horse learns to take treats gently.
Operant Conditioning (Trial and Error Learning) Behaviour = Consequenses
  • Operant conditioning forms an association between a behavior and a consequence.
Classical Conditioning Classical Conditioning (Learning by Association) Classical conditioning is used by trainers mostly to create an association between a stimulus that normally would not have any effect on the animal and a stimulus that would. This type of learning was made famous by Pavlov's experiments with dogs.
Habituation As a prey animal the horse needed highly tuned senses, and a hair trigger for the flight response. However, jumping and fleeing at every sound expends a lot of energy. This is not very efficient, especially in times of drought, high temperatures or if food is scarce, when the horse needs to conserve its energy. To combat this the horses brain has developed the capacity to habituate to things, repeatedly occurring in the environment, that did not lead to fear or danger.
How Horses Learn Before we start working with the horse, it is important for you as the horse's trainer and teacher, to understand how the horse learns. This will allow you to present ideas to the horse in a way that makes it easy for the horse to understand. It will also allow you to problem solve, and come up with your own solutions should the need arise. There are many ways to teach the horse the same thing, this is important to remember, so if you are not having success with one method, find another.
Clicker training and the competition horse? The clicker is used to train a new behavior or improve an existing response. Once a behavior is established, reliable and on cue, the clicker and reward are phased out and only used again if you need to “tune up” the response to that cue. By the time your horse goes into a show ring or competition, the horse should have well established responses to all the cues you will need for that type of event.
