S.M.A.A.R.T. Horse Company Film With Horse Hero
A while ago the S.M.A.A.R.T. Horse Company was contacted by Fiona Price at Horse Hero about Clicker Training for the web site.
One of the aims of Horse Hero is to “offer a rare glimpse into the lives of leading professionals, their training methods and their horses.”, and so Horse Hero invited the S.M.A.A.R.T. Horse Company to do some filming.
We could not be more delighted that Clicker Training was going to be featured on the Horse Hero website.
We frantically searched our diaries for dates where we were both in the same country, could get to the same venue and on the same day. That was challenge all in itself but we found some dates that worked.
After some fun discussions with Fiona we not only had dates, we also had a video plan.
I won’t spoilt the surprise and I will keep the topics of each video under wraps ! You will need to watch this space for the links to the Horse Hero web site when the videos are published in the coming weeks.
Day 1 of filming was last week and it proved to be lots of fun. Thanks to a very generous friend, we had a variety of horses to work so you will see everything from big horses to small horses and older to a beautiful yearling who definitely showed his cheeky side.
Filming was a great success, the weather held out (contrary to the forecast) and the horses were immensely patient….even when asked to stand and do nothing, a huge challenge for a clicker trained horse and definitely gave us a few entertaining video outtakes !
That was just the start for us. We have another filming date coming up which will show that Clicker Training can be used for advanced work, including ridden, and we hope it will be a little surprising ! You will need to keep checking back to find out why. And we also have an article appearing soon in the Editorial section of the web site.
We will let you know when the videos are on the web site. I hope you enjoy them.
