    Love this book

    I ride for a mounted division in the local sheriff's office. We're always trying to find things to do with our horses to expose them to different situations. This book is so fun. We took a break from defensive tactics and de-sensitizing our horses to play some of these games and had a blast!!! It helped our horses too. thanks, Melanie
