Horse fanciers soon learn that every horse has its own distinct personality. Like human beings, some are easy-going while others are difficult. In this handsomely produced and beautifully illustrated book, an experienced trainer presents a practical and humane approach to solving the most common equestrian problems. Each problem is identified and described, its probable causes are analyzed, and several remedies are suggested. Problems fall into three general categories:

Behavioral problems originate from the horse's own temperament, and include reluctance to socialize with other horses and high-strung behavior, among others Day-to-day management problems include nipping, kicking the stable door, escaping from pastures, and similar behavior Equitation problems relate to tacking up, saddling, and riding the horse, and include dressage problems and a horse's refusal to jump a fence, among others

The text is complemented with vivid photos and enlightening diagrams that show examples of problem behavior and illustrate training exercises and therapies to overcome each challenge. The author's reader-friendly style and her expertise combine to make this volume must reading for every horse enthusiast. Approximately 550 full-color photos and illustrations.
