Topic: A look at trick training, both the practical type tasks and impractical tricks we can teach our horses. Explaining the difference between positive reinforcement and how tricks can become stimulating mental puzzles for our horses or using negative reinforcement that can stress our horses out and cause fear when we make the task achievement the only goal.
