Part 9: Clicker SuperStars
I know what you’re thinking. It’s about time we’re getting to riding!
There are so many ways you can think about riding with the clicker. If your horse is reasonably safe, you can begin by piggy-backing the clicker onto what you already know. If your normally fidgety horse stands at the mounting block, click and treat. When he marches boldly over the wooden bridge out on the trail, click and treat. When he picks up a great trot, click and treat. In other words, use the clicker to capture good moments just like you used your camera way back in your first clicker exercise to capture good photos.
You can also apply all the new clicker skills you’ve been learning throughout this course. Just as you teased apart other behaviors and taught them in small steps, you can tease apart all the elements of riding. I use a technique that’s derived from single-rein riding which I refer to as riding on a triangle. I’ll be introducing you to this as well as to some other riding concepts in this unit. But before I do that I need to talk about stopping for the click.
