Do you wish you could communicate better with your horse? 

                     Do you wish you could have fun with your horse?

                                         Or do you just want to lie around with him?

All these things are possible with a clicker trained horse.  With clicker training, you can teach your horse all the skills he needs and have fun at the same time.  With clicker training, your horse learns faster because he is actively trying to learn what you are trying to teach him.  You are truly working together toward a common goal. 

This site is set up as an educational site to help people learn about clicker training. You will find some basic information in the CLICKER BASICS, FAQ and GETTING STARTED sections.   If you are already clicker training, then you will want to visit the articles section for more advanced topics.  I also share training information on my blog: www.equineclickertraining.wordpress.com and my facebook page:  Equine Clicker Training - Katie Bartlett.


Monthly News for July 2018

I've been posting a series of new articles on the Art and Science of Animal Training Conference. They can be read on my blog.

I will be co-teaching a clinic with summer with Jane Jackson, Cindy Martin and Marla Foreman at Jane's farm in Vermont.  This clinic is open to trainers off all levels. We combine lots of hands-on time with Jane's ponies with presentations and activities with other attendees.  It's always a fun and educational experience.  You can find more information here.




This site now has a facebook page that is where I will post updates about what's new on the site, share what I am doing with my own horses, and post other items of interest. The site is named Equine Clicker Training - Katie Bartlett.  To go to it from here, you can click on the link below.


 I also have a blog,  www.equineclickertraining.wordpress.com, where I have been posting some of the longer articles



Training Tip:  When teaching a horse head down,  it is not uncommon for the horse to take a step forward as he drops his head. This is normal grazing behavior and just means it is his pattern.  I find that teaching head lowering using a stationary target placed near the front feet often minimizes this tendency to combine foot movement with lowering the head.
