Rating
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 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.
