Jane Jackson of Bookends Farm will sort out the facts from the fiction. Just what are positive reinforcement, +R and clicker training? Are they all the same? Does it really work? Does it mean we’ll have to spend the rest of our lives being mugged for treats? Or that our animals won’t do anything without a food reward? Jane will walk us through what Positive Reinforcement Training is and is not and help us understand how we can use it to improve our teaching and training.

Vermont Horse Council members are invited to attend as part of their membership.  This is the first of four educational events that are included in your annual membership.  Non-members are welcome at a cost of $25.00/person.   The funds collected will be directed to the VHC scholarship funds. 

 We look forward to seeing you!
