Difficult Horse
The Difficult Horse provides many insights as to why a horse may develop unwanted behaviours. 'Problem' behaviour is usually more of a problem for the handler than the horse, which is likely to have established patterns of behaviour as a way of helping him feel safe in situations he finds mentally and/or physically stressful. As well as explaining the reasons for a horse's reactive and sometimes dangerous responses, this book suggests a number of practical exercises that can help to address a wide range of commonly encountered issues. Even if you consider your horse to be problem-free, these exercises will still be invaluable in helping you and your horse to develop a closer, more pleasurable and successful relationship.Topics covered include: The causes of stress; Lifestyle and stress management; Reading a horse's 'body language'; Addressing phobias; Uses of TTouch and NLP. An invaluable guide to discussing why a horse may develop unwanted behavioural problems. Suggests practical exercises that can help address a wide range of common issues. Aimed at all horse owners and riding instructors. Superbly illustrated with 120 colour photographs. Sarah Fisher is a TTouch Instructor and animal behaviour counsellor and Karen Bush is a BHS Intermediate Teacher.

Bombproof Your Horse
Every horse, from the pampered show-hunter to the family pet, is faced at one time or another with an object or situation that is overwhelmingly terrifying, or just downright confusing. With his systematic approach to "bombproofing," Sergeant Rick Pelicano of the Maryland National Capitol Park Police shares his methods on how to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to training your horse to deal with such situations. His vividly illustrated manual shows you how to accustom your horse to a variety of circumstances, noises, and objects, thereby turning him into a more pleasurable, submissive, confident, and ultimately safer mount.

The Balanced Horse
Inspired by the time-honoured traditions of the Classical World, Sylvia's desire to protect the horse is reflected in her training methods, which concentrate on a balanced seat and quiet aiding. She abhors the use of force and gadgetry in the schooling of horses and believes that Classical riding is the best way forward for all the disciplines. The Languages of the Aids is not as well understood today as it should be and it seems that it is frequently forgotten or fragmented, and it will be the horse that suffers most when this happens. Incorrect aiding can have a very adverse effect. The aim of 'The Balanced Horse' is to confirm in people's minds what they should be doing for each and every request, and what they must avoid. Every instruction is based on what the horse needs to feel - at that moment in time. Each aid is based on the psychological and physiological effect placed on that sensitive animal underneath us. Over time, applying each aid correctly can elicit a response as instant and involuntary as the knee jerk reaction of our own.

Understanding Horse Behavior
Equine behavior has always fascinated humans, and never more so than now. We are intrigued by the way horses behave with each other, whether in the wild, in domestic pastures, or even alone in a stall. Similarly, one of the most beautiful inter-species relationships is that of horses and people. It is more often than not taken for granted that any reasonable horse or pony will abide all sorts of manipulations and engage in a variety of activities on our behalf. We are surprised and frustrated when they don’t. What we ask horses to do is often quite incompatible with their natural instincts. From the behaviorist’s point of view, the routine work and performance feats of domestic horses are truly remarkable. Equestrians have long been fascinated by those people who seem to possess extraordinary ability to interact effectively with difficult horses, to eke out superior performances from seemingly ordinary animals. Currently, interest in equine behavior and demand for the services of these specialists are at all-time highs. Training workshops and clinics have become almost as common as horse shows. Understanding Horse Behavior presents current information and resources on the basics of horse behavior. Included are examples of common behavior problems and suggested approaches to behavior modification. Dr. Sue McDonnell, DVM, provides astonishing insights into horse behavior under feral conditions and translates this information into logical approaches for training/retraining horses in a domesticated setting.
