Ever wished someone would hand you the manual to your horse?
No, not the one that tells you how to look after it, although this one coves aspects of horse management as well, I’m talking about the one that explains to you just why your horse does the crazy unexpected things other peoples’ horses don’t seem to do...
Well if you have, then this is it!
Better Understanding Your Horse opens up the enigmatic world of horse personalities, how they govern horses’ responses to certain events and occurrences and how best to manage them.
This book not only decodes your horse’s unique personality, it will help you to understand your horse’s behavior, how to manage your horse, also how to achieve a more harmonious relationship with your horse, whether you’re handling, riding or training it.
Some of the things you will learn from this book:
•How to establish your horse’s personality, or that of horses in your care.
•How to determine which equestrian sports are suitable for your horse, its personality, conformation and capabilities.
•What horse personalities are prone to stable vices and their management.
•Your horse’s learning style.
•What boundaries you should apply to various horses.
•What types of personalities will take advantage of (or in some cases take over from) you.
•When is the best time and place to train your horse.
•How to distinguish a hot horse from a dangerous horse.
•When something is in line with your horse’s personality and when it is a sigh of trouble.
As owners, we can only strive to understand our horses better. By better understanding our horses, our riding, training and management of them becomes less stressful.
