Bringing Horse Teaching into the 21st Century
Clicker training horses in Canada
"I believe that there are two categories of ecuyers, those who, while skilled, use the horse as a tool, and those who love him and allow him to express the brilliance of which he is capable.
The former are not less expert than the latter. During dressage tests they may even triumph although never taking the risk of making a mistake when the opportunity to yield with the hand occurs and lightness presents itself. The latter always risk being the damned poets of this art. They are misunderstood by the masses of riders who cannot distinguish between the means used by the former or those of the latter.
Only the latter enjoy the true pleasure of feeling how a creature cooperates without constraint, as a friend."
- 1961, Nuno Oliveira
