This was a great purchase as I was curious about the sport, and it has great step by step sequencing and helpful photos with concise text. I would recommend it!

I'm enjoying the exercises and find her step-by-step approach easy to follow and very logical in their progression to more advanced games.

Tremendously fun and useful Nov. 30 2012
By Thomas G. Acton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is exceptionally clear, concise, and logical. Vanessa Bee explains how to make yourself a trusted leader the horse WANTS to follow, the best foundation for all training. Her exercises, given in practical step by step terms, are valuable for everyday handling and relationship building whether you do agility or not. Obstacles are introduced in a way that builds the horse's confidence in himself and his handler.

The techniques are effective because they are based on how horses naturally think and learn. I put them to the test with a very anxious rescued pony. Originally fearful even of being caught, she was soon coming when I called her, and following me voluntarily. Her training has progressed without resistance or regression because she is focused, confident, and having fun.

Horse Agility Handbook Oct. 21 2012
By boettkd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Book is well written and presents a lot of information. For those that already have a "natural horsemanship" background and are already used to working their horse through different obstacles, I feel the book needs more of the agility patterns. More direction on how to set-up a competition and adjust the courses for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels giving more detail on what is required to advance to the next level, etc.

Excellent information on Horse Agility June 18 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very easy to read & super helpful. Even if you are not into agility this book is great for bonding with a horse and/or keeping manners fresh.
Love it that it is so much FUN!

And now for something completely different! May 27 2013
By A. Burnhill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is superb. With all the groundwork that is advised by various trainers, it is surprising this didn't occur to someone sooner. This is a really well thought out way of training your horse, without the necessity of riding. The main essence is the total bond and willingness of the horse/pony to do these courses because they enjoy it. You aren't touching them so it is totally voluntary and you cannot improve on that. Now if you cannot ride for whatever reason here is a superb alternative to enjoy with your horse/pony.

Horse Agility June 16 2012
By Kaimanawa Star - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author has an obvious passion for her horses & the sport of horse agility. The instructions are clear, simple & easy to understand and include information on how a horse learns & thinks. It also includes how to make some obstacles, how to organise a competition and what to look for when judging. Overall it is a great book to introduce the sport and encourage people to give it a go. However, horses are complex and there are some behaviours and situations that are not covered by this book and the horse person should seek assistance from an experienced liberty instructor. Aside from that, I love playing at liberty with my horse & truly hope horse agility becomes a recognised sport.
