Many masters of horsemanship have studied horses and riding over the last centuries, but few have given the subject greater consideration than Agoston d'Endrody. In preparing this book, he gave considerable thought to the practical principles of riding and to the process of becoming a good rider. And he explains why horses perform more or less successfully according to whether they are mounted by a talented rider or by one of limited natural abilities. In Give Your Horse a Chance, his goal is to reduce the disparity between these two divisions of riders by carefully delineating the processes of good riding and training. The first part of the book explains the proper development of horse and rider so that both learn to enjoy their work. The latter part offers excellent, concise training advice for combined training and show jumping.

“Far more than a book about how to care for a horse, though it stands out as one of the best on the subject . . . beautiful” (Susan Richards, author of Chosen by a Horse). This unique guide to horsemanship incorporates Eastern philosophy to describe how horses understand and respond to the flow of vital energy around them, and how they use this energy, called chi, to communicate with their herd, express dominance, and sense predators. Written by the award-winning author of The Scalpel and the Soul, and including forewords by Monty Roberts and Dr. Robert Miller, Zen Mind, Zen Horse shares safe, simple techniques to make you more receptive to your animal’s chi, so you can develop a calm and effective training style that will not only help your horse follow commands, but strengthen the spiritual bond between horse and rider.

A new book especially written for the time-starved 21st-century horse owner! Do you day after day make a promise to train yourself and your horse to be better at something, but when you get to the barn there just doesn’t seem to be enough time? Don’t worry, what really matters is the quality of the training you do manage to fit in. It really is possible to carry out good quality, progressive training with a horse in only three minutes a day. Educator and horse trainer Vanessa Bee’s “light bulb moment” was when she realized that if a training session had a realistic goal, every horse achieved the goal in under three minutes. This led her to create techniques appropriate for use in brief digestible lessons that ultimately produce significant gains in short sessions. This refreshing new method offers 35 ground exercises, 24 ridden exercises, and 25 “real world” exercises that will get you out and about with a safe, sane, well-trained horse.

Does it scare the devil out of you when your horse throws himself in the air? It should! Wanna make riding fun again? You can! But how? How do you fix this -- when the very touch of the reins sends your horse up and over? When things escalate so fast? Start by asking yourself what you were doing seconds before your horse reared the last time. The odds are pretty good you were trying to stop or back up - and you were applying even pressure on both reins as you asked. In "When Your Horse Rears: How to Stop It" we'll train your horse to accept pressures typically associated with stopping and backing and the like. We'll learn the theory and practice allowing us to soften and relax our horse, giving us greater control over his mind and various body parts. We'll teach respect for the bit while building smooth transitions from standing to walk to trot to lope. In the end, you'll be able to make ordinary requests, (to "stop" or "back," for instance), without fear that your very pressure is an overt invitation to rear up. In fact, once you've put the time in, you'll be amazed at the difference made in your overall control, safety and enjoyment. With this guide, you will teach your horse to: - Keep his feet on the ground! - Deal (well) with increased pressure - Pick up the correct leads - Move his hips independently - Drop his head immediately - You can't make your horse stop rearing with a "bigger, badder bit." You've got to retrain the brain. This downloadable book shows you the steps you must take to put an end to this scary and very dangerous habit: - Greatly improve your ground control - Get your horse amazingly soft on the bit - Greatly improve your brakes - Follow easy, step-by-step exercises for lasting changes - Cure a nightmare situation that could put you in the E.R.! This is true "Do It Yourself" training - and only you can decide if this is something you, personally, are up for. Horse training can be a dangerous activity - so if you have any doubts whatsoever in your abilities, then I suggest you purchase and read this book simply for the deeper understanding you will glean - and then hire a pro for help and guidance. "When Your Horse Rears: How to Stop It" is broken down into five "Days" or sessions: - Day 1: Start turning your horse's first thoughts from "fight" to "give" - Day 2: Teach your horse respect for rein pressure -- and do it where you're safest: on the ground - Day 3: He can't rear with his head on the ground! Teach your horse to drop his head and "calm down now" - Day 4: Gain "Control of the Hips" and get a great way to calm or slow any horse in a bad situation - Day 5: Teach perfect transitions, tune up your brakes and nail your lead departures Plus, the second half of the book offers 9 more chapters you should know if you ride a "rearing horse": - How to Pick Up Your Reins Like a Pro - The Reins: 5 Ways to Improve Your Use - Rider Checklists - Whoever Moves First, Loses - How to Teach a Horse to Pivot on Its Hindquarters - When You Get On, Do This First - Is My Horse Hard to Train... Because of His Feet? - See Yourself Leading When Riding - Training Magic: Release On the Thought See the first half of this book as a set of detailed instructions designed to fix your horse; see the second half as a way to develop and improve you the rider/trainer, your training habits and methods.
