"Every moment you spend with your
horse is an opportunity to instill good habits and develop his respect, trust,
and willingness to work with you. All horses need a solid foundation of in-hand
and guide-line training in order to be safe to handle and ride".
Hill's comprehensive collection of 101 Ground Training Exercises leads you and
your horse through catching, yielding, turning, sacking out, backing, longeing,
long lining, doing obstacle work, and much more. Every exercise is fully illustrated
and described in easy-to-follow, step-by-step language that you can refer to during
your ground training work -- simply hang the book in the barn or on a fence post,
and your're ready to go! The exercises include clear goals, variations, common
problems to watch out for, and lesson reviews.
