Clicker Training for the Jane Savoie’s New Fear Factor Program

Moshi and I are starting clicker training today so we can do a “how to” dvd for The Fear Factor program on training your horse to want to go FORWARD instead of backing up, bucking, or rearing.

I’ve used for a lot of issues like fear of clippers and not wanting to load in a trailer. But today I’m going to use it to teach my horse to want to go forward under saddle.

I love clicker training because it’s based on reward. You use it to increase your horse’s motivation to work with and for you.

You’ll feel a lot less fear if you KNOW you can get your horse to go forward in critical situations. Remember, if you horse goes forward, he can’t rear, back up, or buck. So this is a really great tool to have in your toolbox.
