Overview

Horses have a language and a logic all their own, but humans can learn to understand what they are saying. Using a question-and-answer format and drawing on real-life case studies, equine behavior expert Jessica Jahiel, Ph.D., explains how a horse thinks and learns, why it acts as it does, and how you should respond.

Here are answers to 101 common horse behavior problems including:

* How to handle a frightened or untrained horse
* How to help a horse that is head-shy, afraid of the vet, or unwilling to stand for the farrier
* What to do with a horse that kicks, rears, bucks, or bites
* How to help older horses get rid of bad habits and keep young ones from developing them

    Horse Behavior Problem Solver: All Your Questions Answered about How Horses Think, Learn, and React

    Ignorance and horses are a bad mix that can result in injury and even death. Dr. Jahiel takes the guesswork out of the owner/horse relationship. She has produced a book that is an essential addition to every horseman's library. As a journalist, author and horseman, I can pay no higher compliment.

    Horse Behavior Problem Solver: All Your Questions Answered about How Horses Think, Learn, and React

    As a journalist and horseman, I can say with authority that this is an essential book to own. Jessica gives down to earth answers to sometimes complex questions regarding animal behavior. Horses are too large to rely on guesswork. Jahiel gives horse owners an edge.
