Catching Horses Made Easy Book – Intelligent Horsemanship by Kelly Marks.
Every owner knows the frustration of not being able to catch their horse or pony but by following Kelly’s practical advice you will soon have horses that positively want to be caught! A horse’s natural inclination is to live in cooperation rather than conflict and the essence of this book is to help you to work with the horse and not against him. Kelly shows the reader how to look at things from the horse’s viewpoint and by doing so to make him want to be with us and to follow us. Kelly writes about initial handling in the stable and in the field and describes the ways in which we can improve our body language so that he is comfortable being with us. Working with the methods described by Kelly you will soon have a horse that will not only want to come with you but will also be a generally more willing partner.
Kelly Marks is a former showjumper and jockey who started working with Monty Roberts in 1993.
