Description

This manual is a continuation of Marty Marten's first volume on solving common horse behaviour problems both in the saddle and on the ground. Chapters address problems with bridling; cinchy or difficult-to-saddle horses; horses that won't stand still to be mounted; hoof and leg handling; trail-riding troubles, such as walking too fast or charging up and down hills; difficulties with tying-up and opening and closing gates; and extreme problems such as rearing, running away, and bucking. The volume is the second of two by Marty Marten which are designed to provide answers and solutions to riders' most common horsemanship concerns. Marten emphasizes that what most people consider a problem is really a symptom. His methods and philosophy are based on how horses think, learn and communicate naturally. Rather than make a horse do what is asked, Marten's approach sets up the training in a way that allows the horse to search for the right answer. The horse's slightest try is rewarded by the handler's or rider's immediate release of pressure.show more
