Clicker Training College Philosophy
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. (Chinese Proverb)
At Clicker Training College, we aim to teach our students to ‘fish’.
Everyone loves their horse, and that means we want to have a great relationship with our horse. At SMAART Horses we aim to help you build that relationship; one that has its foundations in mutual trust and respect. To help build that relationship its important to be training for emotional changes in our horses just as much as behavioural changes. We can change behaviour but that does not mean the horse has shifted how they feel emotionally about a behaviour.
We want the horses to be with us because they want to be with us, not because they have to.
Studying with Amanda at SMAART Horses, whether online at Clicker Training College, or at live Clinics with help you have that wonderful relationship with your horse.
“Just because we are training with positive reinforcement does not guarantee our horses are having a positive experience.” At SMAART Horses we aim to teach you how to ensure your horse is having a positive experience.
