Training Your Foal : Raising a Foal from Birth to Backing Paperback
by Renate Ettl
Raise a confident and happy horse through sensitive training!
Correct training follows from knowledge of how horses develop physically, mentally, and behaviourally.
A horse which has been treated incorrectly as a foal may never be reliable.
It may be prone to suspicion and panic reactions throughout its entire life.
A well-trained foal is much easier to back, and its first hack will be a less risky undertaking.
In addition to the essential basic knowledge, the author offers tips and suggestions to ensure the successful training of your foal: Imprint training, first learning steps, learning with mother, weaning the foal, problems of adolescence, obedience and discipline, first gymnastic exercises, initial backing.
