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 ???
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.
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.
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
