Overview

"I believe that in the world of horses, one has the best chance to develop a happy relationship through steady supervision and by reading constructive literature, making HORSE SENSE invaluable to anyone who loves horses. Regardless of one’s experience, there is always room to improve and expand."
~ Bruce Davidson, World Champion - Three Day Event Rider

Have you ever ridden a horse who:
Bucks
Stumbles
Shies
Pulls
Stargazes
Rears
Rushes his fences?

You need to read this book.

Here, listed alphabetically, is the clearest, most explicit information you can find to solve specific problems. In plain language, step-by-step solutions are given for the scores of problems which every person who rides or works with horses must know how to correct.

~ This book is for the serious rider:
~ the serious beginner who needs to know the working mechanics of safely riding and handling horses.
~ the serious intermediate who wants to refine his technique and become more effective.
~ the serious expert who wants to compare his methods with those of other experts.

A brief introduction gives the context in which problems arise: a rider who understands how horses think can anticipate and correct, not merely battle against instinctive behavior.

World class competitive riders, riding coaches and teachers, students of all levels offered their first hand experiences and additions to the test of HORSE SENSE. These are the corrections that really work, not empty theories. Where there are several ways of approaching a problem, they are given. Where there are "cures" which have serious or dangerous drawbacks, they are made clear. Following each correction is a list of the probable cause or cause of the problem.

This book contains hyperlinks to detailed pictures and diagrams created by the noted artist Susan Kuehnl, who worked with the author to give readers an accurate representation of many aspects of the problems and solutions discussed in this guide.

* * * A hyper-linked index is located at the end of this book so that readers can cross-reference problems.
