Post S> Informative Horse Books

Hello everyone!

I'm a college student with a little horse experience. My mom and I are doings lots of research and considering adopting a horse sometime in the coming years (and when I say sometime, I mean later rather than sooner). We have appropriate property and outbuildings, etc.

We don't really have a good horsey resource to turn to and spend lots of time enjoying books about training and caring for horses. Can anyone recommend some insightful or useful books about training, care, conformation, etc?

I'm very fond of positive reinforcement training methods because they work for parrots, which I have lots of experience with. I typically like techniques that don't require lots of special equipment and that tend to be focused more on finding a way to work with individuals, instead of a fix-all prescription.

Most importantly I disapprove of any kind of violence or fear, and am currently unconvinced that running a horse til he's tired is a good start to training. If someone can provide logical reasons why a tired, sweaty horse is better to work with than one who's fresh, I'd be willing to listen and consider.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations! My Amazon account is eager to make some new purchases! :) Have a great day everyone and thank you for reading!
