"Old doesn't mean outdated."
44 tricks in all, plus an addendum containing a fix for "Horses that Bite"
Annotated with tips and thoughts for the modern horseman
Includes five original chapters by John Lyons-Certified Trainer Keith Hosman
This book brings together material written by G.H. Sutherland MD and John Lyons certified-trainer Keith Hosman. It is published in two sections. The first is a collection of dozens of classic tricks you can teach your horse, and was written in 1861 by Dr. Sutherland. The second contains five "feats", written by Keith Hosman after finding them to be quite popular at his training clinics.
Why lay down your hard-earned cash for a horse-training book, half of which was written generations ago? Because author G.H. Sutherland could train horses to do tricks that you'd like to learn - and when something works, it works. And in all this time, what's really changed? It's still a human using the same simple tools to teach a horse to do the same maneuvers.
