When you see the title to this webinar, I know what some of you will be thinking: “I don’t ride. I don’t even work with horses. Why would I want to attend this webinar?” The answer is simple. Riding is just groundwork where you get to sit down. The same concepts apply. So even if you work primarily with dogs and other animals that we typically don’t ride, there is much that can be borrowed from clicker training horses that applies to other species. And if you do ride, this program is definitely for you!
