Présentation de l'éditeur

Whether you want to remove bad behaviours, reward new ones, build confidence, improve problem solving skills or just understand your horse better, clicker training is the most positive approach to equine training currently available. Ben Hart explains the evolution of clicker training from its use with dogs and marine animals, its place in horsemanship, and the importance of refining its use specifically for equines. From experience gained all over the world, Ben answers all the most frequently asked questions, whilst solving common problems that are experienced during clicker training. The author bases his approach to training on mutual trust between equine and human, using common sense and honesty to encourage people to follow their own path to horsemanship. He skilfully balances the art and science of behaviour to help anyone develop a positive approach to equine training that works with horses, donkeys and mules. Clear, concise and accessible, this is an indispensable guide to an effective and positive method of training equines.

Biographie de l'auteur

Ben Hart grew up with horses and in 1996 was invited to be one of the first trainers at Monty Roberts International Learning Centre. He returned to England and established the equine learning firm, the Company of Horses, and has trained people all over the world: including Australia, Holland, Ireland and Canada.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of The Art and Science of clicker training for horses book 27 janvier 2009
Par Maddisson Hope - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Finally a long awaited down to earth book on the successes to be had and the pitfalls to be avoided with clicker training. The book deals in great detail with all the questions you ever wanted to ask, worrying questions such as won't feeding treats make my horse bite too more detailed questions about why we need to view working with equines differently to working with dogs. Ben talks about the importance of the trainer learning how to break down what seem like large problems into small behaviours that are much more easily dealt with and how using shaping plans will help you achieve great results to tackle any problems you may be having in your relationship with your Horse, Donkey or Mule.
The first few chapters talk about the importance of knowing the science behind the training technique .It talks to the reader about how and why a little plastic box can communicate so much to the horse. By teaching the trainer this, not only does the trainer start to understand how the horse learns, but also begins to understand how we ourselves learn. We can then apply this knowledge to all our communications with horses no matter what the problem and help us develop a more thorough understanding of our relationship with them.
Further on Ben goes into details about where people can go wrong with using the clicker and how to avoid falling into these traps by using it very clearly and with specific boundaries right from the start.
Ben comes across as clearly passionate for Horses, Donkeys and Mules but the honesty he has for imparting information without Ego, Showmanship or Self Congratulation is the biggest success of this book. Through his vast experience in working with equines, donkeys and mules and his large experience of teaching others to use clicker training and positive reinforcement he is able to show how much fun can be had as long as it is used in a responsible way with much forethought.

I would highly recommend everyone either starting out on the journey or already using clicker to read the invaluable words in this book.

My only criticism is why we had to wait so long and when is the next one ???

1.0 étoiles sur 5 rather disappointed with the book 27 juin 2009
Par Santa Fe Companion Animal Behavior Specialist - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
so when i saw this book online and read previous reviews of it i thought it would be good. when i got it and read it i was rather disappointed. his explanation (and possibly his understanding) of the science of clicker training is muddy and questionable (especially the part on operant conditioning)and the first part of the book he spends an awful lot of time highlighting the "pitfalls" of clicker training. first of all, if you really read into and think about it, the problems aren't due to clicker training itself, but results from either trainer inexperience or equine ethology that has to be taken into account. second of all, maybe it is just me, but if you are going to write a book advocating the use of clicker training (or anything for that matter) you generally want to start out with something a bit more positive on the subject, not the problems with it. he would have done much better to explain equine ethology and ways to improove training skill or even "troubleshooting" rather than continually discouraging people from trying to learn the techniques. i too believe that people should be educated in the science behind a training technique before attempting it, but isn't the whole point of writing a book TO help educate people? it makes me question if he really even believes people should try this type of training on equines at all.
the book is written in the form of question:answer, with every chapter title being a question and the body of the chapter being the answer. this in and of itself isn't necessarily bad, but the way he answers the question is very heavily OPINIONATED---"this is what i have found works for me" etc. the whole point of using behavioral science to train animals is to get away from opinions, move more to studies and tested theories, even anecdotes---evidence, not opinion. I would not recommend this book. Kurlands stuff is better and more practical.

BTW, the author is British, so some of the language and spelling is a little different if you are american. just a heads up.

While believing Ben Hart to be a man gifted with equines from having done some research about him and finding Mr. Hart to be a well respected man and trainer, I wanted to learn a great deal from his book. Mr. Hart answered a letter personally and impressed me even more with who he is. I really wanted to love this book!
Mr. Hart has been around equines his whole life according to his biography. Mr. Hart has a vast education in equines and experience with equines. He has 10 plus years with clicker training. He makes his living as a trainer.
Naturally, there is many recommendations for you to 'get a trainer.' And probably a grand suggestion if location and finances are no object. Even then, it is still you who has to live with your equine....
The book is 'generalized'. Very little specific information is given. He tells you specifically how to get your horse to target, but you can find that everywhere on the internet. It's after targeting that directions would be more helpful. While is it nice to state that you will need to make a micro-detailed list of everything the equine will need to learn to arrive at the end goal - it is not considered that you may not have enough experience with an equine to know all the steps.... or that you may not have an already trained equine to assist you in watching the goal performed so as to make this needed list. He does give an example, but states that the example could use many extra steps. Not helpful to a newbie.
The 'art and science' is also misleading in my opinion. The description of the science of clicker training is good, but also everywhere on the internet. Mr. Hart did give a very nice history of clicker training that I enjoyed. I was hoping for more science... as in scientific test or literature. Even antidotal uses would have been nice.
The 'art' was lost on me. It was his opinion on how best to use clicker training. Great to know from someone so gifted with equines, but not detailed enough to be helpful to a beginner.
Basically, while Mr. Hart is a talented and gifted horseman/trainer, he is not talented with taking the knowledge from his head and putting it in a book that is useful for the layman.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Art and Science of Clicker Training 1 mars 2009
Par F. Crane - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Over the last several years I have heard so much about the art of clicker training. Being new to the world of equines I thought I might give clicker training a try. I decided to do some research. There are numerous step-by-step books out there that make clicker training seem as easy as A-B-C. However, it seemed rather gimmicky to me. After all, I thought, nothing relating to training dogs or horses could be that easy. I accidentally stumbled upon Ben Hart's book which answered all the questions I had been asking myself about the pros and cons of clicker training. I have 2 copies of "The Art and Science of Clicker Training for Horses". I keep one at home and one at the barn. No other book delves this deeply into the science of equine behaviour and how it relates to clicker training. Nor do the other books mention that clicker training a dog and a horse should be approached in a completely different manner. Ben Hart's book is a definite must read for those who are interested in clicker training a horse, donkey or mule. I give this book 2 thumbs up!!!

As the Author of the this book I am not going to tell you why I believe it is important for your horse, donkey or mule, that you read this book. If you what to really know about the benifits and pitfalls of clicker training and if you want to know if it is right for you and your equine I am going to ask you to check out the reviews of this book on [...]

I just have seen so many people try clicker training and say it doesn't work and for people to rubbish it as a training method because they don't understand the use of rewards, especially food, in training equines. Of course when it doesn't work people blame the system, the clicker or their horse. I don't believe, just like any method, it is for every horse and person every time, there are limitations to its use and those are set out here too. The bottom line is it is the hands that hold the clicker which determine its success or failure and to get good hands you have to understand what to do when and why. This book is set out to answer the most common clicker training questions I have been asked in the last 12 years.

So please just take a momment to look at the UK reviews and decide for yourself
