About our Clicker Training Expert

Post by Admin on Sat Mar 06, 2010 9:39 am

Cheryl Ward - Cheryl Ward of www.paintinghorse.com fame will be the first to tell you that it's not about the clicker. It's about the encouraging the horse to seek something which gives him pleasure. Cheryl calls it "Attraction-based Training". Says Cheryl, "I saw the vast contrast between working with my horses using methods of attraction and using methods of pressure. It became a question: Was I like a predator using pressure, or a provider using attraction? By training with attraction, my horses were relaxed and focused without using any force. Pressure can be communicated to a horse with a shout or a whisper. I like what I see in my horses when they respond because the choice feels good, not because they're avoiding something that feels bad. " Find out more about Cheryl, her horses and her methods here in monthly article in our online magazine here: http://www.goinggaited.com/aIFeelGood.html and at Cheryl's website here: www.paintinghorse.com
