Hubby picked this up for me at the book store the other day. Bless him, he has no idea why he grabbed it other than it said "Western Horseman", but it is actually a great little how to book.
The author is Marty Marten, a student and colleague of such great horseman as Hunt, Brannaman, and Dorrance.
I liked it because he uses easy, clear, no nonsense techniques to teach ground manners as well as trouble shooting problems. He covers basic ground manners, riding foundation, trailering, hard to catch, barn sour/herd bound, spooking, ect.
I think it would be a great supplement for some younger and less experienced riders and those without access to a professional trainer.
Just thought I would share.
