Solving Equine Behaviour Problems
An Equitation Science Approach
Horses can develop a range of behavioral problems, which if left untreated, could cause the relationship between horse and human to break down. With many different well-meaning opinions offered to solve such situations, it can be difficult to find the right path.
In this book, Rose Scofield examines behavioral issues using the latest academic research. Offering practical solutions with useful diagrams and photographs throughout, the book helps to protect and develop the horse-human relationship. It:
- Addresses issues by circumstance, making it easy to find solutions to all your handling, groundwork, and riding problems;
- Uses scientific research to investigate both the problems themselves and the methods tasked to solve them;
- Includes illuminating case studies illustrating problems and how solutions work in practice.
"Profusely illustrated throughout, Solving Equine Behaviour Problems: An Equitation Science Approach is a thoroughly comprehensive and exceptionally well written, organized and presented manual that should be considered mandatory reading by anyone vested with the responsibilities of horse ownership and/or training. [Also] highly recommended for community, college, and university library."- Midwest Book Review
