Training a foal is not child's play! It can be a fascinating experience, but it requires the correct mixture of experience, horse knowledge and intuitive feeling. The way a horse is trained and treated in its first two years - along with its inborn traits - determines how it will behave for the rest of its life. This book is full of useful information about the physical, behavioural and mental development of the young horse and sets out the correct way of training a horse to be responsive, safe and enjoyable to ride. Anyone interested in horses will find this a fascinating book, as it explains much about horses' behaviour that so often at first sight seems impenetrably mysterious. * Essential basic knowledge, tips and suggestions, to ensure the successful training of your foal: - Imprint training - First learning steps - Learning with mother - - Weanlings and Yearlings - First public appearances - Sexual maturity - - Weaning the foal - Problems of 'adolescence' - Obedience & discipline - - First gymnastic exercises - First backing (mounting) the young horse - * Invaluable reference book for all horse owners, horse breeders and anyone rearing a foal.
