If you are looking for detailed information on horse training keep looking. Other than some very generic discussion of theory, this is mostly a collection of very general tips such as, have a comprehensive plan, or buy proper safety equipment, or the best one was advice to get books or materials containing details on training steps and methods. One source cited (surprise surprise) is the author's web site. Couple that with the 10% discount code contained in the book for the before mentioned web sit and this book begins to feel more like a paid advertisement than a source of practical information, ok fair enough I guess except for when I realize I was the one who paid. Even though it was only ninety nine cents I feel there is more advertising than I could ever want being pushed at me that I don't have to pay for. That in turn makes me a little angry I paid anything at all.
The title says "10 simple lessons that will transform your horse RIDING and training". Um, not so much.There's a lot there about "horsemanship", and if you take lessons at any reputable barn, you will learn about grooming before and after tacking up, picking out hooves, etc. There is precious little about actually riding.I would have given it two stars instead of three, but for the low price in the kindle store, some folks might like it.
It is a very short book containing many good ideas for riding and for training horses. The ideas in the book are written simply and clearly. I would recommend this book to intermediate riders. The book is also useful to people who are relatively new to training horses.
I thought I would get training, handling suggestions - not so. The book is more on the line of explaining that riding might be dangerous and that it is a good idea to wear a certified helmet, that a horse is very good at reading your mood, that you may or may not, because there are always exceptions, get some clues about your horse from its breed. All true and good advice for a beginner, but nothing specific.
This is a great little book packed with common sense advice on what's needed when you being to ride. It was detailed, knowledgeable, insightful as to what you've got to do prior to putting one foot in that stirrup! I appreciated the candor and information. While this is geared more toward someone who's never ridden, or just started, it's also a great "refresher" course for those of us who ride consistently. Great job putting the information out there Charlie! Thanks!
I am getting back in the saddle at age 51. The tips and advice were easy to understand. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is hesitant to get back in the saddle because of age.
This might not be a book that is very detailed, but it does give a beginning rider or new horse owner a great start out and the price is right.It has the basic horse psychology and basic safety tips that will help a person just starting out or wanting to buy a horse.Since it is a short book to read, it does give a great advantage with minimal study time.The advertising at the end of the book is also a great resource, should bigger issues arrise, you have a way to find more and better training, for a very reasonable price, to go to.I personally have seen Charlie Hicks training videos in his video library and was very impressed by all of them, for under 30 bucks a month. It included books and other resouces as well. For a beginner who is serious about learning about horsemanship and riding, a priceless treasure.For an advanced rider, this little book might seem boring, but there are some gems in there, that I really appreciated. Like taking care of your horse after the ride and sacking out or desensitizing a horse takes a lifetime. Never mind to consider the breeding and what it means for the capablity of a horse or the temperament, which is very important when buying a horse. Many times I seen people buy a horse on impulse and then realize they bought too much horse for them to handle.Thank you Charlie Hicks!
There is absolutely no value in this panphlet. The subtitle is a complete lie. It is a summary of bulls*** and obvious reccomendations with no detail and no fundamentals. I'd have been happy to return it. I did not only because it was 99 cents. I think this kind of authors play this game like those subscriptions that you have to take the effort to cancel.
