Hi peeps,

I'm interested in learning how to do clicker training, can anyone recommend some good books.

Thanks x

In my jods!
Ben Hart's "The Art and Science of Clicker Training for Horses: A Positive Approach to Training Equines and Understanding Them"

Karen Pryor's "Don't Shoot the Dog!: The New Art of Teaching and Training"

Karen Pryor's "Reaching the Animal Mind: Clicker Training and What It Teaches Us about All Animals"

Alexandra Kurland's "Clicker Training for Your Horse"

Not specifically clicker but looks at learning theory and the different methods of training (not specific to one method) is the book in my sig which is a 'must read' for anyone interested in training horses or the psychology of horses:

Emma Lethbridge's "Knowing Your Horse: A Guide to Equine Learning, Training and Behaviour"

(Free preview of the book is HERE) and an NR review HERE

To be honest, though, if there's someone experienced in clicker and can show you it's much easier to understand that way.

There's a good forum which is clicker orientated here with a new blog of a horse which has been rescued and is being brought on using positive reinforcement here.

Just read the online info re "Knowing Your Horse" and I like the sound of that, so think I will be investing in a copy too!

Thanks BayMare, as always, a great source of very useful information, thanks for sharing! :)
