How Equine Learning Theory Applies to
Positive Horse Training
Did you get all that? Don't worry if you didn't. It will become clearer as we move through the lessons on
clicker training for horses.
The biggest thing you need to remember is that in the early stages of equine clicker training, we will
primarily be using Positive Reinforcement and Negative Punishment.
Positive reinforcement (the click and treat) will be for getting the desired behavior.
Negative punishment (removing the treat and ignoring the behavior) will be for extinguishing undesired
Negative reinforcement and positive punishment will be used rarely, if ever.
I will explain more about how to properly use corrections in the next lesson - Correction or Punishment.
