The Difficult Horse provides many insights as to why a horse may develop unwanted behaviours.  'Problem' behaviour is usually more of a problem for the handler than the horse, which is likely to have established patterns of behaviour as a way of helping himself feel safe in situations he finds mentally and/or physically stressful.  As well as explaining the reasons for a horse's reactive and sometimes dangerous responses, this book suggests a number of practical exercises that can help to address a wide range of commonly encountered issues.  Even if you consider your horse to be problem-free, these exercises will still be invaluable in helping you and your horse to develop a closer, more pleasurable and successful relationship.

  • The causes of stress
  • Lifestyle and stress management
  • Reading a horse's 'body language'
  • Addressing phobias
  • Uses of TTouch and NLP
