Today was my first online lesson from Sparkle Pony on positive reinforcement (+R)
Lesson one was how to ask and reward for the correct behaviour, so this is what we do:
Blonde: ‘Woah, Stand’
Shire: *Stops what she’s doing and stands very still and relaxed*
Blonde: *Makes appropriate noise to let Clover know she has done the correct thing*
Shire: *Hears noise*
Blonde: ‘Aren’t you a clever girl? Here’s 17Carrots’
And hey Presto!
