RC: Clicker Training

Well, I spent a loooonnnng day at the horse expo in Timonium, MD with a
friend last Sat. Lots of fun shopping. Stopped by the Smith-Worthington
booth to talk saddles. Love their saddles. Was dissapointed that there was
no endurance tack for sale anywhere!!! Saw three different talks/demos and
the very last one late in the day was a presentation by a married couple on
clicker training for horses. It intrigued me so much that I went to their
booth afterwards and bought a video and a couple of clickers. With their
system food is initially used as a reward reenforcement for desireable or
requested behavior. I was introduced to something similar years ago when I
worked at a QTR horse ranch in Nevada where I  started  basicly wild and
unhandled colts under saddle. I then used it on a couple of Mustangs I
trained and found it to be pretty effective. There was no clicker or
"bridge" involved, just the food reward. Has anyone here on ridecamp dabbled
in this? Would love to hear from you if you have given it a try.
