A step-by-step training guide can you find in my article that’s published on Horse Rookie.
One day I realized that my horse kept pulling me toward grass and it made me feel like an inadequate horse owner. Here I was, with over 30 years on horse experience and still I was pulled towards juicy patches of grass. Sound familiar?
I decided to make a training out or it, but whatever I did nothing worked long-term. Next day it all seemed forgotten. Which it wasn’t really, it was just the pull of the grass that was so much stronger than my pull on the lead rope. So the behaviour was very much self-rewarding.
Only one thing to do: become more enticing than the grass! The only way to do this is with 100% positive reinforcement.
In the article I wrote for Horse Rookie I describe two ways of approach, depending of the level of clicker training your horse had before.
All horses like ‘grass training’ because it’s a win-win: either grazing or not grazing is rewarded.
