It’s the old question – if you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want to take with you? Here’s my answer: A horse, of course. A very thick notebook. A very reliable pen. With those three things I could be very happy. I would never be bored. Writers write and I am a writer. I always have been. Until very recently, the books you knew me by were training books for horses. But long before I wrote my first training book, “Clicker Training for your Horse”, I was writing children’s books. Three of them, the first in the Kenyon Bear Series were published in the late 1980 ..read more

A New book!! So EXCITING!! I’m delighted to announce the upcoming publication of Sara’s Story – The Bear Nobody Wanted. Sara’s Story is the third book in the Kenyon Bear series. Normally I write about horses and horse training. There is a connection to the Kenyon Bear Books. Those of you who are familiar with my work know that I often refer to the classic children’s story Black Beauty. I reference that book when I talk about the underlying belief system that supports training choices. In the mainstream, conventional horse world horses are viewed as stupid animals, and because they are stupid ..read more

I just published this week’s Equiosity podcast. This is Part 3 of a three part conversation. In Part 1 we talked about resets – what they are and how they can be used to help horses rebalance so they are more in sync with their handlers. In Part 2 this led to a discussion of shaping on a point of contact, the WWYLM lesson and visualizing your horse as a marching band. In part 3 explore some useful metaphors that help in understanding lateral work. We begin with Merry-Go-Rounds and then move on to railroad tracks. At the very end of the podcast I talk about the connection between the horse tr ..read more

The Kenyon Bear Books: “Teddies to the Rescue” and “Edgrr the Bear Who Wanted to be Real” Order them through my web site: theclickercenter.com or get them from Amazon. In “Teddies to the Rescue” I introduce you to Kenyon. Kenyon lives in the window of the Shuttle Hill Herb Shop. The shop was a real place. For twenty years the children in the village could visit the bears playing in the window. They never knew what the bears would be doing. They might be heading out for a wintertime adventure . . . , or helping to keep the shop neat and tidy. The books turn their adventures into stories every ..read more

It’s Publication Day!! Help me celebrate by ordering your copy of “Edgrr The Bear Who Wanted to Be Real” today!! I know I’m supposed to be offering you all sorts of limited time offers to get you to buy the book, but that’s never been my style. Instead I’ll share a review of the book that a reader sent me when Edgrr was first published in 1987: “Emma (Age 6) and I snuggled down with Edgrr The Bear Who Wanted to Be Real, and read it straight through. When we finished, we felt wonderful and thought it was a very special and important thing that Edgrr learned. Thank you for sharing.” The Kenyon ..read more

Edgrr The Bear Who Wanted To Be Real Tomorrow is Publication Day! From the Book: And now was a time to warm cold paws, dry wet fur, and munch marshmallows.  Edgrr decided that marshmallows were something real bears ate a lot of.  But he couldn’t decide how he liked his done best.  He tried roasting them slowly so that they were an even crusty brown all around the outside.  That was delicious.  Then he tried putting them in the hot part of the fire until they burst into flame.  They turned black, but inside they were soft and gooey.  He liked that, too.  ..read more
