    Some thoughts from Shawna Karrasch on whether an olympic level piaffe or passage is possible to achieve with clicker training.

    She has a lot of good stuff to say. One thing she points out is that an olympic level piaffe or passage is something very few horses are capable of, and that it takes a very knowledgeable trainer to shape that kind of advanced movement, which means that very few horse and rider pairs can accomplish it at all. (She mentions a bit here of her work with Susan Blinks, an olympic dressage rider, which I think is important to note, as it shows that clicker training is coming more into the mainstream and being utilized by higher level riders.) However she has absolutely no doubt that yes, those movement could be taught at an advanced level using clicker training.

    This is one of the easiest things to criticize about clicker training - to point at the few clicker trained horses and go ‘hey, that movement sucks’. Because there are so few people clicker training horses, that naturally narrows the field enormously, and means that an even smaller number of them are going to be remotely good trainers, and an even smaller number of them are going to have naturally talented and physically capable horses.

    Say you have a thousand traditional trainers, and ten clicker trainers. If you compare the best one of those traditional trainers to the best of those clicker trainers, of course there is going to be an enormous difference in the skill level of the trainer and the quality of their horse’s behavior. That’s not even taking into account the skill level or physical talent of their horses or their financial status and access to the competitive world. But this is just statistics. It doesn’t say anything about the truth of clicker training or its effectiveness, and the truth is that any movement an animal is physically capable of, you can train with the clicker.
