Are you a tiny bit curious what happens in HippoLogic’s Grass Training?
Here’s what people asked me in the course:
‘If my doesn’t respond to the click I tap with the lead rope, is that OK?’
Asked one of the participants in my Grass Training course. This is such a great question! I understand where it’s coming from and I was glad she asked.
The answer is ‘No’. Don’t mix R- (negative reinforcement) or P (punishment) with R+ (positive reinforcement) in Grass Training. You want to keep Grass Training 100% positive reinforcement if you want predictable and solid results quickly.
‘It’s Autumn here and almost Winter, can I start Grass Training’?
Wanted an Australian clicker trainer know. Yes, and it’s actually the best time to start! Why?
Because the grass you’re competing with (over your horse’s attention) is not as enticing as super lush, sweet Spring grass.
You can start lying the fundamentals now of this important training and you’ll reap the fruits when you need them! In the course I will teach you how you can setup your Grass Training without grass.
‘My horse is on a strict diet and can’t have much grass. Is this training for us’?
Yes, and it’s actually the best course for your horse! In Grass Training you teach your horse a solid Stop Grazing cue with 100% Positive Reinforcement, so that your horse will choose NOT to graze.
Especially when your horse has EMS or is overweight you get into endless tugs of war with your horse over grass, right? What if that stops? What if your horse will ignore grass by choice? Wouldn’t that make everything more fun? It was for me!
Why R+ actually works so well I explain in the course. I also teach you how to setup your Grass Training without grass!
I don’t clicker training my horse, is this still for me?
Everything that is trained in this course will be trained with 100% positive reinforcement. If you have a strict policy against working with treats this is not for you.
If you had bad experience with training with treats but your ready to give it another try (under professional guidance and with clear step-by-step instructions) this could be right what you need.
The upside of this training is that it doesn’t interfere with your regular training. If you decide that you don’t want to use food rewards for other training, that’s OK. This will still work.
