A handbook to gaining respect at the mounting block -- with additional, essential exercises.
Your horse dances about and tries to keep you from getting into the saddle because he's either scared -- or because there's been a coup in "your little herd of two." This handbook shows you the steps necessary to put an end to this annoying and dangerous habit regardless of its cause.

Section I of "Get On Your Horse: Curing Your Mounting Problems" shows you, step-by-step, how to move your horse to the mounting block, to lunge, to give respect -- and to stand rock solid.

Section II presents four additional chapters designed to "round out" or "book end" the previous training. Each offers buckets of additional insight into the specific issue at hand, that is, the horse that's begun "dancing" at the mounting block. (See the Table of Contents for a complete listing.)

You will:

* Correct the horse that has decided he's in charge, not you
* Learn to position your horse no matter which way he moves
* Learn to sidepass your horse toward you on the ground
* Learn how to lunge your horse
* Follow easy exercises to make lasting changes
* Cure a situation that could grow dangerous, left unchecked

Teach your horse to show respect, to move to the mounting block, to lunge, and to stand rock solid with this DIY roadmap to the methods of John Lyons written by Certifed Trainer Keith Hosman.

From the Inside Flap:

Form the opening pages of "Get On Your Horse: Curing Your Mounting Problems":
If your horse has developed the annoying habit of dancing about as you try to mount up, this course is for you. If you dread the thought of heading out to the barn because you know your horse is going to embarrass you red-faced, refusing to stand at the mounting block, this course is for you. If the little voice in your head says it's only a matter of time 'til you get him (the little voice) killed...then yup, this course is for you.  Take heart: When we're through here, you'll know how to remedy this situation.  Your horse will stand there politely, and fellow riders will have new and positive impressions of your skills as a horseman.

Know from the outset that this is no quick fix; it's a long-lasting, wrest-back-control fix that may very well take effect quickly (as in days or weeks) - but that results achieved are decided by you and your horse as a team.  Results gained depend on how deeply entrenched the habit has become, your horse's temperament, how much quality time you're willing to spend and to what degree you're willing to personally change.  Sure, I can get you into the saddle relatively quickly (see Day Two) - but there's no magic button to cause Ol Dobber to stand there politely. As you've doubtless heard, the only way to change your horse is to first make a change in yourself so you're going to need to make a commitment to spend the time it takes - and commit to doing things a bit differently from here on out....
