Is this book right for you? Please note: This is a training book; it is not a “care and feeding” book. When choosing, you may also want to check out the reviews for my other books like What I’d Teach Your Horse and What Is Wrong with My Horse?
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. They need to cooperate for the farrier, to stand near you politely, to be lead around the barn, to respect your space – they need to become a cheerful member of your family. This is your step-by-step guide; it shows you exactly what to do, what to look for and in what order.
Train your foal to be safer and:
- Respect you and your space
- Deal with fear
- Stand calmly
- Begin “giving to pressure,” the very foundation of all training
If you were the first person to someday ride your weanling, would you feel safer if the colt did – or did not – have a proper foundation?
