RE: [RC] Mouth work - clicker training - Sheila_Larsen

My trailer is going to Sundowner tomorrow for an insurance estimate
(someone hit it) I have been trying for a month to get it in there.  Then I
broke my drop down window.  I have cleaned up as much broken glass that I
can but there is still glass  in the window so I don't want to go far.
Could you go for an easy ride on Sunday up in Cool?  I have two fat horses,
and one horse with only one front shoe, so for the next week it is easy
does it.
Thanks,
Sheila

In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have.  Eleven-hundred pounds of raw
muscle,
power, grace, and sweat between your legs
- it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.  ~Author Unknown

Sheila,

I won't "thwap" you..silly girl! I don't know anything about clicker
training, but it sounds interesting to say the least. I have just found
that there are more ways to skin a cat, so to speak. Horses that have been
abused like this one obviously has, need to learn to trust that what you
are asking of them won't hurt them, but rather will feel good, and they get
a treat for agreeing!

Let's ride..really ride! Folsom Lake trails are good right now..

I agree with Susan, clicker training would probably serve you very well
with this type of issue. And hey if you try it you may never stop using
it, whole new way of working with your horse. With all due respect to
Ranelle, if you back off once she is agitated she may be "clicker"
training
you not to approach her ( if what I am remembering correctly what Ranelle
said, my apologies and if we ever actually do go riding together she can
thwap in person). The John Lyons method of approach and retreat would be
compatible with clicker training with just the added incentive of getting
a
treat so she knows where she had done the correct thing.

In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. Eleven-hundred pounds of
raw
muscle,
power, grace, and sweat between your legs
- it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster. ~Author Unknown
