Product Description

What can be done with a horse that's hard to bridle, won't stand for a new farrier, or kicks while being ridden? Why would a sweet horse suddenly turn mean? How can an owner calm a horse that becomes a nervous wreck at shows? And what should be done if a gelding attacks a mare?

Anyone who has spent much time around horses knows that horses can be shy, frightened, anxious, uncooperative, and even aggressive. But that does not mean that the horse owner should accept unwanted behavior. In "The Horse Behavior Problem Solver, equine behavior expert Jessica Jahiel offers proven solutions to common horse behavior problems.

Jahiel explains how a horse thinks, how it learns, and why it acts the way it does. She identifies the types of bad habits that are the result of the horse being mishandled by humans. And she helps owners and riders understand that what may look like bad behavior to a human is actually, from the horse's point of view, a perfectly reasonable response.

The trick is for the human to realize which behaviors are instinctive and which are learned. At the same time, people need to learn what can be done to prevent bad habits from forming and how to discourage or eliminate a horse's existing patterns of unwanted behavior. Hardcover, 416 pages.

    The Horse Behavior Problem Solver

    I find this book to be a must for all who love and care for horses. It is wonderful. Jahiel is a very gifted communicator. She is very insightful in her responses to the questions being asked of her and very informative in her responses. Personally, I cannot praise Jessica Jahiel enough for her affirmations and most insightful responses towards our beloved equine friends and people. Jessica J. shares without "airs"--just helpful horsey and people wisdom is to be found here.

    I believe that every horse loving person should own this book and will be equally grateful should they purchase it! Again, I so much appreciate the way that Jessica J. communicates. I haven't finished the book, but when I do, it shall be a great referenced keepsake.
