AZ of Horse Behavior And Training offers a new insight to horse enthusiasts of all levels of ability, providing a comprehensive over-view of the vast subject area that concerns all thinking and caring riders. The author shows how a better understanding of the way horses think, and how their natural behavior is affected by the way we care for, handle and train them, can enhance both performance and relationship of horse and rider. Section I examines the horse's world, looking at the nature of horses and how we can work with, rather than against, their instincts, both in management and training. The horse's own perspective is always in mind. In Section II, an AZ format is used to list the important topics involved in understanding equine behavior and in schooling, with particular attention given to the young horse. Each heading is sub-sectioned, giving a general explanation of the term, practical advice, potential problems, and targets to aim for. Illustrated with over 150 colour photographs, AZ of Horse Behavior And Training is an essential reference for everyone who rides or keeps horses.
