Post Free E-Book For Horse Owners To Help Avoid Problem Behavior & Gain Respect

I wrote a book in 2010 called H.E.R.D Human Equine Relationship Development and I would like to offer it to everyone in E-Book format for FREE. I have been around horses for most of my life. I have also worked with a lot of horses, been around a lot of horse people and the one thing that always amazed me was the fear that people had of their own animals. I also saw that it came from a "misunderstanding" of what a horse is versus what people think horses are. It's pretty simple once you get inside their heads as to how to handle them correctly and not create problem behavior. This is not a "training" book for horses. It is more a guide to help people understand the confidence they need in order to be a good leader for their horse. I also put a lot of tips on buying horses, handling them safely, and learning to talk to them through body language so they can understand what you want and you can also understand what they are saying to you. It is a great book for someone who is starting out in horses or who may find themselves being intimidated or pushed around a lot. If you are around horses you know that a lot of new owners make the mistake of "spoiling" horses unintentionally...I wanted to provide a beginner with the info to avoid that bad scenario. I wrote the book because I love horses and I want people to be able to communicate better with their animals, thus everyone is happier! So anyways you can visit my website http://www.herdbound.net and click on either tab "buy book" or "free ebook" both have links for the download. Like I said it is the full 271 page book and I want you to have it. There are no strings attached, nothing to sign up for...it is just a free gift...and if you know someone who could use it please share the link with them as well. Much thanks & happy trails!

does your book say how hard a horse can kick or bite,or does it tell you how hard the ground is when you land?

lol Rob...it tells you that a horse is to be respected...and that if you tease or taunt them you may get "unlucky" to say the least :) Golden rule...if it has a mouth it can bit you...and if it has hooves it can kick you. I am very big on being respected by your horse...but not being feared by your horse and vice versa...the key to good horsemanship is BALANCE...not just in the saddle. You do need to be a firm leader BUT a fair leader. Fear destroys the animal AND your relationship and the second a horse starts fearing you it shuts down learning and starts into survival mode.

but hb,what people have to realize is just because you read a book,doesn't make you a trainer or a horseman.horses are all different,same as people,so the majority of your horsemanship has to come from hands on.
