This is a Foundation Level course designed to teach people how to clicker train horses. It is intended first and foremost for people who are new to clicker training and want to get off to a great start. Clicker training is an easy concept to understand, but there are lots of small details that make a huge difference to training success. This course guides novice handlers past the pitfalls. It gets them off to a great start and shows them how to make creative use of clicker training. It also forms a great review for people who are already familiar with the clicker and want to get some fresh ideas to liven up their training. And for those who are currently teaching, it is a tremendous resource to add into any training program. For clicker instructors who work primarily with dogs but who would like to branch out into helping horse owners, the course provides the necessary background to safely meet the training needs of their clients. It doesn’t matter if you ride english or western, if you are a trail rider, an endurance rider, a reiner, a jumper, a dressage rider, or just a weekend pleasure rider, this clicker foundation course applies to all disciplines and interests. If you are starting with a foal, have a green horse, a seasoned campaigner, or an old family friend, you’ll find this work applies to them all. After you’ve completed this foundation course you’ll be able to teach your horse new skills and to resolve training issues. With clicker training there is no limit to what you can create out of great training foundation. The course is made up of 15 Units containing text and over 185 videos. Participants can sign up at any time and work through the course at their own pace. There is a quiz at the end of each unit which students must complete before they can move on to the next unit. On-line coaches are also available to assist one-on-one with the lessons covered in the course.
