    this Morgan gelding is already 5-YO and has a well-established mouthy and mugging behavior;
    he has been known to bite, with is very dangerous in horses - a dog who bites punctures, a horse crushes + can take a chunk
    of flesh, leaving terrible bruising + swelling - their necks are so strong, that they COULD bite a mans shoulder, pick him up
    + THROW him like a rag-doll.

    so having this fella give-up his bad habit is very, very important.
    this is only the 3rd lesson - this is from *jessica -

    He belongs to my blacksmith who was a pretty big skeptic about
    clicker training until she met my horse and then took a few classes with her dog.
    I did a brief (5 min) targeting session with him two days prior to introduce the clicker and his owner did a brief
    session that morning. This was also the first time I trained a horse with a baby strapped to my back! :)


    what she is looking for as her clickable-moment is him moving his nose AWAY,
    and i think he makes good progress on the step-back, too.

    the swallows trilling noisily in the bakground are closer to the camera + mike than is *jessica,
    LOL, so they are a bit loud - but i like to hear them, barn-swallows are nice to have around livestock,
    they are such beautiful flyers and eat gobs of bugs, too.
