The ABC Guide to Breaking and Schooling Horses

£4.99

Product description

The early chapters of the book deal with the care and handling of the foal and the education of the yearling and two-year-old. An explanation of lunging and long-reining includes advice on the necessary equipment and how to fit it. The benefits and method of loose-schooling are described and mouthing, biting and backing are covered in detail.

Chapters on schooling on the flat and over poles take the equine pupil up to participation in a first show, hunt, dressage test or Pony Club rally. Valuable advice is given on assessing and buying young horses to school on, and on re-schooling badly trained or difficult animals. Matters of behaviour, vice and nervousness are covered, as is road safety, saddlery and equipment, travelling, and feeding, care and management for all ages and stages.

Book dustcover has some minor marking.
