Fashionable Horse Coaching Builds Nice Relationships – The Clicker Heart Weblog

I really like giving clinics. I really like sharing clicker coaching with others, and I’m at all times honored when somebody lets me have a play with their horse. Over time I’ve come to know lots of the clinic horses nicely, and I take into account them to be a part of my prolonged equine household. I at all times get a chuckle when a horse I haven’t seen for months will get excited after I flip up on the barn. “You’re right here! We’re going to play!”

I really like this picture as a result of this horse started by actively warning me to remain out of his house. His physique was lined with “No Trespassing” indicators. Instructing him to offer hugs modified all that.

The hug begins as easy physique half concentrating on. The horse learns to convey his nostril to your hand. Together with your palm over his nostril you’ll be able to really feel the horse inhaling, respiration out. Click on as he exhales and fairly quickly you might be clicking because the horse relaxes and melts into your ready hand.

Including in your second hand provides him two goal factors to orient round. This will grow to be an train in physique consciousness and steadiness. Or you’ll be able to flip it right into a social hug.

It’s onerous to inform who enjoys the hug extra – horse or human. I think the perfect reply is we each do.

That is very a lot a case of we each take pleasure in an excellent bear hug.

Fashionable Horse Coaching is splendidly sneaky. Easy behaviors equivalent to fundamental concentrating on remodel into a lot extra.

This picture exhibits the start steps of educating the Consciousness Hug.

That is one among my favourite earlier than and after comparisons. The adjustments in the best way this horse is holding himself occurred after three classes held over a day and a half. The Consciousness Hug very a lot contributed to the adjustments you’re seeing.

“Earlier than” he’s in a higgledy-piggledy stance together with his steadiness pitching ahead. He appears to be like caught. Below saddle you can think about it could be a chore to get him to go ahead with enthusiasm.

“After” he’s lifting up. He’s standing rather more over the assist columns of his legs. He appears to be like a lot extra athletic, as if it will be straightforward to go ahead.

The Consciousness Hug is taught intimately by way of my on-line clinics. I’m tempted to say it’s a part of Clinic #6: Connecting the Dots since I’ve a unit that’s particularly on The Hug in that clinic. However the whole lot is related to the whole lot else. To actually perceive the small print that helped change this horse’s steadiness you could join the dots by way of all of the clinics.
