Description - Problem Solving by Marty Marten
This manual seeks to lay the foundation for all good riding with techniques and exercises that are time tested and proven. Chapters cover common ground: handling problems with horses, such as being hard to catch and pulling back when tied; typical riding problems such as spooking, walking through water, and crossing bridges; and solutions to the very common problem of trailer loading. The volume is the first of two by Marty Marten which are designed to provide answers and solutions to riders' most common horsemanship concerns. Marten emphasizes that what most people consider a problem is really a symptom. His methods and philosophy are based on how horses think, learn and communicate naturally. Rather than make a horse do what is asked, Marten's approach sets up the training in a way that allows the horse to search for the right answer. The horse's slightest try is rewarded by the handler's or rider's immediate release of pressure.
