Breaking and Schoolingby Carolyn Henderson, Lynn Russell
Every horse, whether a potential top-class show jumper or the family hack, should be responsive, balanced, and obedient. A well-trained horse can only result from proper training, but it's hard to know what to do and when to do it while training a young horse or trying to re-educate an older one. Breaking and Schooling offers sound, clear advice and instruction for each stage of the training process, with chapters on: What to look for when buying a young horse, acclimating your horse to new surroundings, introducing tack, lungeing and long reining, early schooling, teaching your horse to jump, progressive schooling; behavioral problems, schooling problems, training aids, and even a chapter on training an ex-racehorse. Over 50 detailed photographs demonstrate techniques discussed. Breaking and Schooling will start every new horse-owner off on the right track, and help those who already own horses enhance their training methods. (7 X 9 1/2, 160 pages, b&w photos)
