Atty on the Trailer with Engine On, 5-3-13

I made two mistakes in this session. The first one led to the second one. The first mistake was forgetting to feed breakfast to the other horses right away, as I usually do. This led to my leaving Atty on the trailer with the truck engine running. This was a HUGE rise in criteria at once. Watch and listen. Can you pick out his stress behaviors? But in the end, he was mostly okay – he backed out on cue. 🙂

About Laurie Higgins

I play with clicker training - with my horses, dogs, and cats. I also attempt to grow vegetables with the hope of one day being able to feed my family from my garden. My daughter and I are learning ballroom dancing. Well, we were. But she left me for a paying horse job, so now my husband and I are learning ballroom dancing. I'm also now helping Peggy Hogan, of Clicker Training Horses (and The Best Whisper is a Click) to teach people how to train their own horses using "clicker training".
