I think reading a variety of texts, magazines, and books and watching videos and horse videos are helpful in developing understanding of how and why, but the key to great horsemanship is the ability to apply the lessons learned. Having the feel necessary to know when and where to apply pressure, and the moment to release is critical. Like Rob says, that hands on is critical, but I think the education behind it can be gained through a combination of lessons, text, and video... so thanks for offering another opportunity for learning

Thank you ace,and I agree with you to an I stated,reading a book or watching a video doesn't make anyone a horseman or might give you a idea on how to approach it.

I talk about that too...experience is key...ride, ride, ride, and experience as many different horses as you can...BUT rob here is what deprives people of experiences with their horses...they have no clue where to start and base alot of fumbling around on fear. Lot of people have been around horses for a long time and they still approach them with a lack of confidence...a horse respects and understands confident handling...confident handling comes from understanding AND builds with experience. Like I said the book isn't about training...its about understanding that confidence and leadership a horse craves and seeks by second nature...I hate when people get walked on by horses because of the need to "love" them like a human. Horses do not understand all of our touchy feeling type of love and affection giving and certain horses take as an envite to walk all over the owner...coupled with rewarding horses at the WORST possible times...we create most of our own problems by lack of I said it isn't a book about training really...its about foundations and communication...setting rules

I just wanted to help people and horses...I am really saddened by the fact that people can't enjoy their animals like they should be able too. I also hate to see animals being "ruined" by good intentions...and it isn't the humans fault because to us it makes perfect sense but horses don't think like we do. I am glad to share the book with you all...and I hope you find something in there that is helpful :)

Does your book mention anything about reading a horse?
    02-14-2012, 12:06 AM
It talks about body language yes. Your body language and the horses. It talks about approaching a horse with the proper mindset, relaxing, leaving your worries and anxieties behind the gate. It talks about having a feel for what your horse is telling you through its body language. Conversations have two sides...don't lecture the horse all the time you got to listen to what he is saying too and since he can't talk with words he tells you with his body...if that's what you meant by reading the horse yes. :) Just read the dang book!

Sorry,but i've learned all this for the past 40 years from hands on,so no offense but it's a little late for me to learn from an amatuer's book.

The fact that you feel you can't learn something new - from a pro or an amateur - is the first sign of a closed mind.

Let's stay on topic. Thank you for your offer herdbound. I've only got ~60 years experience with horses but I always love to see a different approach to things.

Your wrong iride,i can learn,but its going to be from someone who's been there and done that longer than I have.

Rob, just because someone hasn't been around horses as long as you doesn't mean they haven't had an experience you haven't had yet

Downloading the book now!!! Can't wait to read it
