Ref: Price: £14.99

The Difficult Horse provides many insights as to why a horse may develop unwanted behaviours. ‘Problem’ behaviour is usually more of a problem for the handler than the horse, which is likely to have established patterns of behaviour as a way of helping himself feel safe in situations he finds mentally and/or physically stressful. As well as explaining the reasons for a horse’s reactive and sometimes dangerous responses, this book suggests a number of practical exercises that can help to address a wide range of commonly encountered issues. Even if you consider your horse to be a problem-free, these exercises will still be invaluable in helping you and your horse to develop a close, more pleasurable and successful relationship.
