Product Overview

In order to avoid risking life and limb when the unexpected strikes, this definitive follow-up manual provides further in-depth instructions on how to "bombproof" horses. This method of training works for any number of unexpected incidents and unusual terrain, such as backfiring cars, speeding motorcycles, floating plastic bags, and crossing water and ditches. After reviewing the techniques from the first volume, this guide simplifies an array of new challenges: behavior problems, trailer loading, navigating parades and large gatherings, defensive riding, and self-defense techniques for the rider.
