Episode 224: Clinic Inspired Conversations Pt 3: Maximizing Reinforcement Strategies
This is Part 3 of a part conversation in which the topics were inspired by the discussions in my on-line clinics. In this episode we return to a subject we have explored before - reinforcement strategies. We talk about management solutions when training is not yet in place. And then a big topic: what does "feed for position" mean? This is a big topic because it takes us straight into our ability to influence a horse's balance. We also talk about the conversation that emerges between handler and learner when “No” becomes an acceptable answer.
