Tackle new experiences calmly and with confidence by following the step-by-step sequences with explanatory captions and practical tips. Richard begins the book with Making the Decision, covering all the general areas that you should know when buying or breeding a youngster. Richard explores what has changed with working with horses and why over the years, from using round pens and join-up, focusing on owners as well as horses, to creating a training pyramid plan to follow an organized training regime with a logical progression to help you and your horse achieve your goals.
Richard asks the important questions you need to answer before committing to owning a youngster and runs through the 10 training principles. He highlights the importance of repetition, establishing a clear means of communication between you and your horse, and understanding how the horse's brain works, from the right side to the left side. There are also areas of special mention: orphan foals and keeping entires.
The second chapter runs through training your horse from months. But if you give to him, instead of waiting for him to give to you, you are only encouraging him to pull against the lead rope. However, be sure to reward him immediately when he does give by releasing any remaining tension in the lead rope. This technique can help in avoiding an all out tug-of-war. Slowly but surely, your foal will begin to grasp the idea that moving toward you results in the release of tension on his head. And I always try to end on a positive note. That is, when he gives me a few steps, I will pet and scratch him and end the lesson there.
Be Consistent As with children, one of the greatest things we can give our foals is our time. Spending a little time every day will build the relationship between you and your foal, and give you the opportunity to keep his education moving in a positive direction. There is just no substitute for spending the time. We need to earn our foal's trust, and become a normal and positive fixture in his daily life," she concludes.
