Mary Concannon is a  Horse Sport Ireland coach and a Click-that-Teaches instructor.   Mary who came to horses later in life, spent a lot of time  looking for a way of working with horses that recognised their intelligence and sensitivity and that was fun for all.

Having spent several years working with Natural Horsemanship methods, she met her match with a young thoroughbred with a huge buck and turned to Clicker Training for a solution. She has not looked back.

Mary brings 30 year experience as a teacher/lecturer to the clicker training world.  She holds a degree and Ph.D. in Science and understands and appreciates the science behind Clicker Training and the learning theory it enshrines.

Marte Huggard is a Horse Sport Ireland coach and a Click-that-Teaches instructor.  She has been working with horses since she was just 7 years old.  Coming from Bergen, Norway more than 12 years ago, Marte brings a wealth of experience in the horse world.  The Norwegian education system allows pupils to specialise in a career during their school and college  years and Marte took advantage of this to train in equine work, with dressage, gymnastics, show-jumping, trotters and driving horses (both for sled and plough).  She continues on her training and has huge experience in teaching and coaching riders at many levels.

Since coming to Ireland, Marte has worked in Clonshire, Co Limerick as well as Holmoak Stables, Tralee and Tralee Equestrian Centre before coming to set up the Irish Clicker Centre with Mary.

Both Marte and Mary regularly train with Alexandra Kurland who pioneered clicker training for horses and has developed The Click That Teaches series of books and DVDs
