I would like to try some clicker training with my youngster and was wondering if anybody can recommend any good books or websites. I really want to have a good read about it first and have a book there to help us along the way but I haven't got loads of spare money for buying 5 books before finding one thats good and there seems quite a few on the subject so would be very greatful if anybody could recommend one they have had success with! Many Thanks :)

Yes I agree with BM that don't shoot the dog is a fantastic training book. I think it is relatively cheap and is good one to invest in :) Forgot to say that there is some free things on Alexandra Kurland's website. There is also some good articles on Karen Pryor's website, not all are to do with horses but reading about how you apply the methods can give lots of ideas :)

All the above are good - and a recent one which would be useful for youngsters would be one called "Getting to Yes" by Sharon Foley, you can get on Amazon :)

Alex's DVDs are good for getting timing etc. right - it's much easier to start once you've seen someone else doing it :)

Agree about Don't Shoot the Dog too -a must read for anybody who wants to train anything (horses, dogs, dolphins, children, spouses...)

The Yahoo message board Clickryder is well worth a read too, and is searchable, so you can find some "getting started" posts, as well as FAQs and specific ideas for young horses. There is a lady called Kim Sturgeon who has been training her foal from birth - lots of lovely YouTube stuff, I will see if I can find a link for you.

Wow this is all brilliant thank you so much! Will keep you updated with our progress! I'm really quite excited about seeing what it can do for us as we have really hit a brick wall shall we say and have yet to find any other sort of "training method" that can help us, Many Thanks:D
