Letter from EagleGirl: Clicker Club Training Column

We are seeing some new members join the Clicker Club, and we are tickled pink! Right now we are introducing ourselves and our animals, and telling what kind of treats we are going to be using and how we are going to carry them. Once we have introduced ourselves we are going to start talking about what we want to train our animals to do. We would love to have others join us, so please feel free to pop in and introduce yourself!

If you would like to investigate clicker training, I highly recommend the following authors: Alexandra Kurland (Clicker Training and Your Horse; The Click That Teaches), Sharon Foley (Getting to Yes); Karen Pryor. All of these ladies are excellent clicker trainers, and their books are very informative and helpful. They also have websites that you can investigate along with
your parents.

We look forward to seeing others join us in the Clicker Club, and to getting started with our training!


from Keely

Hey! Keely here, and well on Tuesday I rode an Arabian gelding named Magnum, he was fun to ride! When I rode him he kept poking his nose up in the air and so my instructor showed me how to vibrate the bit to which he responded by tucking his head in and relaxing his mouth on the bit.

Pony Pal Thoughts for the Day:

Care, and not fine stables, makes a good horse. - Danish Proverb

Arabians: A little bit of everything perfect. - Amanda Ferber

Love means attention, which means looking after the things we love. We call this stable management. - George H. Morris

A horse doesn't care how much you know until he knows how much you care. - Pat Parelli
