This engaging handbook examines the unparalleled effectiveness of the Downunder Horsemanship method of horse training and demonstrates how to apply the knowledge to everyday equestrian activities. Illustrated.
Frustrated by a horse that's lazy and slow-to-learn? Frightened by an aggressive, disrespectful mount? Unsure of how to take your good show prospect and make him great? This one-of-a-kind book dishes out sensible solutions to all these common problems, and more, as Clinton Anderson guides you through the best ways to become a more confident, efficient, and proactive horseman.
It is in the spirit of "teaching people" as much as "training horses" that Clinton now shares 20 of the most valuable lessons he's learned — from horses and those that work with them — throughout his career. His theory is that if you know how he learned — just a regular old kid with a passion for horses and a desire to work with them — then you, too, regardless of your age or experience, can reach the next level with your horsemanship. Plus, you'll get the inside scoop on some of Clinton's most challenging training cases, most frustrating personal moments, and the errors he's made — and learned from — over the years.
