Presented by Janet Grant, President of the Central Canada Paso Fino Horse Association.
"clicker training has been about the power of an average person to change a horse's life. And I don't mean just by being kind and nice to the horse, although that is part of it. I mean that clicker training empowers us. It shows us that each and every one of us is special and capable and has the ability to teach our horses. We don't have to rely on finding a qualified professional to train our horses. With clicker training, we can take our time and break things down into little pieces and build things at our own speed. It doesn't mean we might not need guidance from other horse professionals, but I think it gives us the confidence to say "yes, I can do that." It gives us the freedom to work at our own speed and in our own way to achieve a desired result."
A beautiful quote from Katie Bartlett
