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.

How will clicker training fit into my existing training program? Perfectly! Most natural, traditional and classical horse training methods are based on negative reinforcement. Negative reinforcement is about removing a pressure when the horse responds correctly. For example, when riding we ask a horse to go forwards by applying a light pressure to the horse’s belly with our legs. We squeeze the horse with our legs and gradually increase the pressure with our legs until the horse steps forwards. When the horse steps forwards we release the pressure of our legs.
 Dopamine, oxytocin and clicker training? Clicker training uses the reward circuitry in the horse’s brain. This causes an increase in the levels of dopamine and oxytocin in the horse’s system. These are neurochemicals that are responsible for making a horse feel good. As a side effect of training with positive reinforcement we actually end up increasing the neurochemicals that make a horse feel good.

Can I use clicker training with a foal or an older horse? Yes! Clicker training works with horses of all ages. Though I normally don’t worry about introducing a foal to the clicker until they are eating solid food. However in some situations with orphans or...

My horse is not really interested in food rewards, will clicker training work? Yes! Some horses will appear to not be interested in food rewards in the beginning. They might take one or two treats and then seem like they are full or not interested in the food or even spit it out. These horses will end up keen and enthusiastic about clicker training within a few short sessions.
Is it safe to use food rewards in training? Yes! Clicker training creates rules around the food rewards and teaches the horse how to take food out of your hand gently. This is like teaching the horse “table manners”.  
 Can you use clicker training while riding? Yes! It is easy to incorporate clicker training into ridden work. Using clicker training while riding will help the horse become very calm, motivated, obedient and responsive. It will also really help with teaching the horse advanced performance work such as dressage, jumping, western riding or reining.
Clicker training can be used to teach your horse almost anything! Clicker training can be used for:
  • Groundwork, handling, leading, in hand work.
  • Teach the horse to have their feet and legs handled safely.
  • Bombproofing, desensitizing the horse to scary objects, tarps, clippers, hosing, standing still for plaiting etc.
  • Loading and unloading in floats and horse trucks.
  • Teaching the horse to accept injections, wormers or allow you to treat an injury or apply medication.
Does the marker signal have to be a Clicker? A clicker is a very effective marker signal, which is why it is widely used by many animal trainers. Though the clicker is not the only possible marker signal that you could use. Dolphin and marine mammal trainers use a whistle. Fish trainers often use a spot light. When training deaf dogs, a vibrating collar also works as a marker signal. You could also use your voice i.e say “good”,  however using a clicker has many advantages over using your voice. Studies have shown that using a clicker as a marker signal reduces training time by up to two thirds compared to using a verbal marker such as the word “good”.
What is Clicker Training? Clicker training is a method of training animals that uses a marker signal and positive reinforcement such as food rewards.
