    Training Books

    I'm after suggestions for good reading material!

    Working/performance based - I do working ASH classes and Campdrafting which is similar to working cow horse.

    General training, problem solving, etc. Would be great. Would also be happy for just general riding stuff, or trails.

    Not books that go super into philosophical stuff, mostly practical, use-able stuff.

    Also not ones that are hard to find in the US as you can bet I won't be able to find them in AUS! I can order off Amazon though.

    My Aunty has a few really good ASH books. Forgotten the names and authors but I'll look them up for you. Susan McBane is a really good practical author, if you're just looking for general riding and horsie problem stuff.

    I have a fantastic book not really about training, but conditioning and general horse fitness, which I can imagine would be beneficial for working horses!

    Http://www.amazon.com/Equine-Fitness-Program-Exercises-Routines/dp/1603424636/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1276204520&sr=1-1
    It talks a little bit about getting your horse performance ready and about general health and body systems in the beginning, and then goes on to break down a conditioning schedule, and then the back breaks down the exercises. It also comes with flashcards.
