Clicker Training – Speaking freely

I need a place to speak freely; somewhere to express ideas, new experiments, training goals and personal reflections.  I’m a trainer that uses positive reinforcement and it’s a very different method than the popular Natural Horsemanship techniques.

“Natural Horsemanship” has become a huge industry. People around the world are claiming to be horse whisperers, showing us the latest and greatest way to train horses. But there is a huge, huge gap between using “pressure” to train a horse and using “rewards” to train a horse. NH is, defined by science, a method of horse training that’s being sold as “positive” when in truth, it is built on aversives.

So I’m going to use this blog space to speak my mind on the subject. I’m hoping that people who are truly interested in building a bond with their horses will find this site useful.

About clickertraininghorses - Peggy Hogan

I teach people and train horses using positive reinforcement. The horses I work with are given choice, the freedom to volunteer behavior. The joy is that they strive to volunteer what works for both of us.
