Reviews for Think Like a Pony on the Ground: Work Book Bk. 2
The Think Like a Pony collection of workbooks will provide an invaluable education in horsemanship–on the ground and in the saddle.
An excellent guide to the basics of pony handling. The book is primarily aimed at youngsters, and the author suggests that readers should already be familiar with book one, but the advice given is sound regardless – a list of simple, easy to follow rules that will enable rider and pony to work well together as a team. The book deals only with training on the ground and includes exercises for handler and pony using a sensitive range of signals.
