7 || Behavioral Problems & +R Solutions

5/14/2019
More
In this week's episode, I discuss a few of the behavioral issues that I encountered with Mac, my RRP project. He was shut down, jumpy, and afraid, so instead of punishing for the undesirables, I changed the question and environment. I offered more control to a horse who previously had none, and in doing so, worked through some very common behavioral problems without resorting to the normal means. I focus on "girthy" horses, biting the halter, biting at people, and head/ear shyness. Be sure...

3 || What's the Point of the Clicker?

4/16/2019
More
+R trainers often use clickers or a specific sound to “mark” a behavior. The marker or bridge signal, bridges the gap from the behavior to the reinforcer. The click becomes a secondary reinforcer because the horse knows that his reward is coming. Trainers use bridge signals to make the training more precise and communicate information to the horse that the behavior he was performing at the time of the click earned him the reward & that that reward is on its way! The use of a clicker tool or...

This week's episode discusses the four quadrants of operant conditioning, positive/negative reinforcement/punishment (+R, -R, +P, -P). I delve into what each of the four means and what it looks like in horsemanship & training. I hope you find this episode useful and fun! Be sure to tune in next week for the episode where I'll be discussing the purpose of the clicker.

Welcome! I hope that you guys are as excited as I am to embark on this new platform's journey. I couldn't be more thrilled to finally be doing my own podcast. I'm not sure of it's future, but for now, I am here to share my journey as a horse trainer. Not in the traditional sense of the word, but instead the sense that every time I'm with my horses, I'm teaching them something new, and they are teaching me many "somethings new!"
