Clicking with the Pony Fairy
My name is Monty Gwynne, but I am better known as "The Pony Fairy." As the only Canadian-approved Alexandra Kurland 'Click That Teaches' instructor, I have used clicker training for the past 15 years. For three decades before that, I successfully trained horses and their humans using conventional means. So, why did I change my training methods? Simply put, it works better and faster, but, more importantly, it builds great relationships, and is fun for the horse and trainer. Clicker training produces an eager, interactive animal, who is engaged in the learning, a horse who wants to be with you.
In this blog, I will provide foundation lessons, then expand on these teachings to show you how to train anything you can imagine. I hope you will join me each week and start to build a great relationship with your horse through clicker training. I look forward to your questions and comments!
