This is a humorous little clip that has been circulating around the internet. Its well worth watching for a few laughs, if you haven’t seen it yet. The clip is a 1941 Disney short called “How to Ride a Horse.”
Now, while watching, I couldn’t help thinking how much this horse could benefit from a bit of clicker training. The trouble would be trying to figure out where to start!
In particular, he’d benefit from learning a few food manners, so he doesn’t take the rider’s hand off when he goes to take a treat, or knock the rider down while searching for more treats. Contrary to popular opinion, treats don’t have to cause bad manners. This horse has such a sense of humor, though, I’m sure he’d get a kick out of clicker training and be a well mannered mount in no time!
