Or any advice would be great:eek:

Favourite at the moment is Getting to Yes by Sharon Foley.

You might be interested in Alex Kurland's first book - perfect for teaching a young horse what they need to know in preparation for backing later - a lot of her examples are her own young horse Robin (now about 12, I think :D). You can't buy from Amazon, though, you need to get the book from the US. It is superb, though, and very comprehensive. And has the advantage of being "a step by step" guide.

There are other excellent books around - Ben Hart's gets a lot of good press - but if you want a step by step guide, I would go for Sharon's or Alex's books. Both give plenty of info on the science behind clicker training, and both have websites where you can get extra info, always helpful! Alex also gives clinics in the UK every year - the one I was at this year had two lovely 2 year old colts :)

ETA - the clickryder yahoo group is a great source of info too. If you buy Alex's book from the website, and any of her DVDS, you also get to join her e-mail group which is superb and invaluable. You get access to incredibly detailed email updates like this one that someone has put up on EE.
