The Click That Teaches 9: Overcoming Fear and the Power of Cues

by Alexandra Kurland

Take your horse from clicker basics to “Clicker Superstar” with The Click That Teaches series in videos and books.

Overcoming Fear and the Power of Cues, the newest DVD in the series, features a real gem of a session! In the video you will meet Muska, a 7 year old Icelandic mare, who came to her new owners with a major problem. While under the care of her previous owners, Muska had a traumatic experience with a saddle and developed a fear of saddles. Follow this video lesson as the power of cues is used to eliminate her fear.

This two-hour DVD:

  • Shows how to overcome a fear issue using head lowering
  • Highlights the importance of timing and mechanical skills
  • Explains how to build duration into head lowering behavior
  • Describes how to combine advance and retreat techniques with the clicker
  • Teaches how to read your horse's body language
  • Demonstrates how to recognize and use the cues that evolve during the shaping process
