Good horse, bad habits : practical solutions to problem behavior in the barn, under saddle, and out in the world

Image of item
Book
"A go-to manual for any horse owner, this book addresses a range of equine behavioral problems, from the mild, refusing to stand still or tail rubbing, to the severe, rearing under saddle or attacking other horses. With topics broken into four main categories--bad habits in the stable, correcting ground manners, problems under saddle, and the reluctant traveler--noted rancher Heather Smith Thomas dissects each topic by addressing the source of each problem, providing solutions to the behavioral issue, and discussing what to do if the fix doesn't stick. With solutions to a wide swath of troublesome horse behaviors that are applicable no matter the breed or favored style of riding, this book, from a recognized authority on animal care and management, is sure to be a mainstay for anyone who enjoys riding and rearing horses"--Publisher's description.
