Two week online Clicker Challenge (all levels welcome)

HippoLogic's Clicker Challenge starts Friday October 6th, 2017. It is for all equestrians who want to expand their horizon. Registration closes at October 9th, 2017

We will have our own online private group to share our experiences, ask all your questions and encourage each other to our highest potential. 


Improve your equine clicker training skills in just 2 weeks.

The #HippoLogicClickerChallenge helps you:
- Write your own training plan
- Plan your training days (something a lot of people struggle with)
- Set up your training as effective as possible with short, sweet sessions
- Make your training fun and easy for your horse and a bit more challenging for the trainer )
- Improve shaping behaviours in your horse
- Improve 'duration' in training (longer display of a behaviour)
- Teach your horse how to deal with context shifts (changes in environment and still get the same quality of behaviour)
- Improve your timing (using cues, bridge signal, food delivery)
- Understanding your horse better by noticing and interpreting changes in your horses' body language
- Practise HippoLogic's Key Lessons ("Your Key to Success in Clicker Training")
- Find and fix the 'holes' in your training you might not even be aware of.

Here is what will you get if you enter the #HippoLogicClickerChallenge:

- a training challenge at your own level
- 2 weeks of daily (!) tailored help in my private FB group
- a fun learning experience with like-mined equestrians

Before you sign up, consider this: You HAVE TO be dedicated to make this work: a minimum of 3 days/week training to complete the basic level and 3-5 days/week training for advanced and expert level.

You don't have to 'choose' a level right awaywhen you participate. Everyone starts with the basic exercise and adds criteria along the way. It will be wonderful to see what you can achieve in 2 weeks.

Green level = basic training assignment, achievable for novice clicker trainers, green horses and trainers with limited time 

Bleu level = basic level + extra criteria
Red level = advanced level + extra criteria

This super FUN learning experience is only $ 47 CAD

I can't wait to see you in the #HippoLogicClickerChallenge! Registration ends Monday October 9th, 2017 9 pm Pacific time, so don't wait too long.

After you signed by paying your registration fee with the PayPal button below, I will send the information and the link to the special private Facebook group to the email address attached to your PayPal asap.


Reviews HippoLogicClickerChallenge

Just a few of the many positive reactions the HippoLogicClicker Challenge received:

"I really enjoyed it and it helped me to see what steps other people took."

"I really enjoyed the challenge and I will continue to practise the blue and red level. Hope you will come up with some more stuff"

"I've been experimenting with clicker training for about 6 months. It's been a struggle at times because I'm pretty much on my own. Everyone in the barn I'm at follows more "traditional" training methods. I have learned so much 
in the past two weeks, from reading the posts in this group and following everyone's progress. Thanks to everyone for sharing!"

What students said about the course:

"I had a really empowering online coaching from Sandra, helping me put my problems in perspective. Now Iliana and I are really focusing on not grabbing for food wherever she goes, and with baby steps we are getting there. Lots of other things to train too, but one thing at a time I think. Thank you, Sandra, you are in inspiration!" Patricia, Spain

"Through her online course on goal setting, Sandra has given me excellent help in how to set achievable goals for my horse training. I'm now better able to see what I need to work on and enjoying achieving my goals. Thank you Sandra!" Ananja, The Netherlands

"A fascinating and creative teacher. She was great help in helping me and my horse achieve our goals. Concise, clear and funny!" Noche

"I have enjoyed all of it. The course has really helped me think about what I actually want to do with my horse. You do a good job of helping focus on a goal. Loved the advice and support."

"I have gained a lot so far. I've always had a bit of butterfly mind and tend to jump from one exercise to another too fast and not getting anywhere! Sandra have taught me to focus and take things in small steps. And its so helpful to read everyone else's progress as well" (student is referring to the Facebook support group for this online course)

"What I like is that they (the exercises) are very doable as you have to answer to one thing at a time. I appreciate the way you give support a lot. You are critical in a good way, not letting me feel like everything I do is already perfect but also giving advice in a good way and helping to keep sharp.
I also got a little more insight into why I find it hard to succeed with training plans and what I could do to help myself with this."

"I think this course is an excellent idea :) You are always very supportive Sandra and make this feel like a safe place (the Facebook support group) to ask questions. Funny, but I've met a lot of R+ trainers who a very encouraging and positive with their horses but extremely critical of their human trainers. Sandra you walk and talk R+ in all areas - with horses and people :) "

After two weeks you send in your 'after' video and you get your second evaluation. Two sessions for almost the same price as one!
