    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.

  • www.lindatellingtonjones.com
    Here at HOURSE, we use more TTouch and TTeam training methods than any other program in our re-training system. It is fun and feels good for the provider as well as the horse. And it's not just for horses! All living things benefit from these amazing techniques.

    Akin to Tom Dorrance, this site is full of wisdom and great photography about horses. "I'm here for the horse, to get him a better deal." RH

"He arrived as equus some two million years ago, as splendid an animal as the ages were to produce."
