Introduction to Positive Reinforcement

With Susan Chandler

Colorado Horse Rescue
10386 N 65th Street
Longmont, CO 80503

Join CHR trainer Susan Chandler as she shares the basics of Positive Reinforcement training and challenges traditional communication tools with horses. Think outside the box as you learn how to make your day-to-day sessions less stressful and more enjoyable for both you and your four-legged partner. During this clinic, we will cover:

  • What positive reinforcement is and its misconceptions in the horse community.

  • CHR’s experience with R+ and why we use is in our training program.

  • Exercises that you can try with your own horses to enrich your sessions, whether it is with colt starting or working with a seasoned animal. 

  • Targeting

  • Trick training

  • Pros and Cons when deciding between R+ and R-

  • Enforcing behaviors

  • Discouraging behaviors

  • And more!

 If you need a horse fix this summer and want to learn something new? Sign up today. Participation spots will be limited to 6 per session. 

This will be the first true participant clinic. People can bring their own horse or borrow a CHR horse.
