In my last trick blog, Why You Should Teach an Old horse New Tricks, I talked about the many reasons why I think everyone should teach their horse tricks and gave you plenty of inspiration in the video… Here is where I show you how:
This step by step video shows you how to teach your horse to Catch!
I strongly recommend that you have taught your horse the basics of clicker training before teaching them to catch; this is to make sure they are calm and polite when working with treats, understand what the click means and only offer behaviours when you ask for them. It can be all too easy to confuse, frustrate or over-excite your horse with clicker training, so getting the basics in place is a must.
I have plenty of material on how to do this in Clix College Online (there is also a full 2-part video on training catch on Clix College plus loads of other tricks and tips – over 60 step by step training videos in all!) and through my Video Downloads.
