Long-time Western rider and horse owner from Arkansas, USA. Lindsey Vincent is training her young QH colt 'Skitter' using clicker training techniques.
"I don't believe there are many clicker trained reining horses." says Lindsey. "I have heard of some but have yet to see them at the NRHA or AQHA circuits. My goal is to see how far Skitter and I can go, and all his training will revolve around using Dr Susan Friedman's Humane Hierarchy."
A professional certified dog trainer. Lindsey understands the benefits of using learning theory and applying an evidence-based approach to animal training. Through her blog she will be documenting the journey of training Skitter, a Quarter Horse colt by 'Chic Please'. You can also read training other articles Lindsey is writing for Horses and People Magazine in the articles 'Training' section of the website.
