Clicker training for horses by Alexandra Kurland is a fun and effective way to
help our horses master all of the stuff we ask them to do. It's
easy to learn and especially good for horses who tend to be aloof with
people. This is how police and trick horses are trained.
Here at HOURSE, we use more TTouch and TTeam training methods than any other

All living things benefit from these amazing techniques.
Some good articles from this superb Canadian trainer. His book, Horses Don't Lie, is very good
