However a couple of months ago I was delighted to receive in my mail a copy of Tony Sandell’s most recent book Educating Horses.
Tony is a horse educator in his seventies who comes from a farming background in New Zealand and has perfectly transcribed his practical, no fuss, horse training teaching methods into a simple, easily followed written form.
His patient, no nonsense, methodical, consistent, but no force approach, promotes trust and a harmonic bond between horse and rider. The training and handling of the horse is carried out in a safe environment for both horse and handler and provides an excellent foundation for its future schooling.
Although I was previously familiar to some of the techniques used, I gained a much deeper understanding of the lessons behind educating the horse? And was very impressed by the simple to understand, practical and safe methods used.
In conclusion, I found this book Educating Horses a most fascinating read and would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with a love of horses.
