Format: Hardcover
I was so disappointed in this book. I have bought many horse books, but this one was certainly the worst. I think it is a pitty that force and strength is substituted for time and patience and really *teaching* a young horse to be confident and trusting rather than be afraid and just submit while it cant move, being tied in hobbles...every lesson praticly was introducing hobbles. I thought it was disgusting. If anyone would STILL like to buy the book, you can take mine for half price!kmrothmann@aol.com

Cherry Hill writes another very informative book, filled with pictures, and written in easy to understand language. Would recommend it for anyone thinking of raising foals.

This is a great book. It helps you know the little things to do when raising a foal. The things that most people wouldn't think of are in this book. Its a good book for beginner on up through experienced.

This book was highly informative, and easily understood. I've always a been tying legs up and laying horses down, but to go back and read it in print just confirmed the value of proper, safe handling from the start. There is a fine line between respect and fear with horses, and firm, but fairness is constant throughout this book.
Even if one is not a handler, I recommend the book for a better understanding of the horse himself. This book is a must have for your home/business library.

Format: Hardcover
This book explains safe, effective and efficient techniques for communicating with a horse and gaining his respect. No new-age touchy-feely gimmicks here, but good, solid, classic horse training techniques that work.

Format: Hardcover
Usage of chains, tying up hind leggs, fore leggs, using all kinds of restraints have NO place in this world anymore. I was disgusted. There is no need for all these things. I would suggest read Pat Parelli, John Lyons or other NATURAL Horseman and woman.
As far as I am concerned 0 stars.
