9780857880024: Training Your Foal: Raising a Foal From Birth to Backing

Training a foal can be a fascinating experience, but it requires the correct mixture of experience, horse knowledge, and intuitive feeling. The way a horse is trained and treated in its first two years, along with its inborn traits, determines how it will behave for the rest of its life. This book is full of useful information about the physical, behavioral, and mental development of the young horse, and sets out the correct way of training a horse to be responsive, safe, and enjoyable to ride. Anyone interested in horses will find this a fascinating book, as it explains much about horses' behavior that at first sight seems impenetrably mysterious. It covers imprint training, first learning steps, first public appearances, sexual maturity, problems of adolescence, obedience and discipline, first gymnastic exercises, and first backing (mounting) the young horse.
