If I had a dollar for every email I get asking "what to do" to make a riding horse out of the mare Uncle Emo just traded for the old RV - or how to retrain a horse that's grown rusty - or some version on either theme, I'd be the world's first gazillionaire. With the publication of this book, I'm hoping to grab that distinction.
"Solid, practical examples"
This book brings together material written by G.H. Sutherland MD and John Lyons certified-trainer Keith Hosman. It is published in two sections. The first is a collection of dozens of classic tricks you can teach your horse, and was written in 1861 by Dr. Sutherland. The second contains five "feats", written by Keith Hosman after finding them to be quite popular at his training clinics.
Do you have a foal on the way? Maybe you've got a weanling who's growing like a weed but in need of training and possibly getting dangerous? Do you know what training is essential for baby horses, how to approach the work - and how much is too much? You have years till you can ride your colt or filly - but there's a lot of training that needs to be done in the meantime.
