Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097326540X, Paperback)A complete, comprehensive book with over 200 detailed photographs capture step by step trick sequences. Tips on what to look for in a trick horse prospect, and what to expect when training. Photo's and text illustrate potential problems so that you know what to expect, and how to handle a situation should it arise. Jackie Johnson has been training trick horses for show and sale for over 10 years. Methods are humane and use positive reinforcement as a reward - No Chains or Inhumane training practices are used, rather the training works off the principles of Absolute Horsemanship - the goal to establish trust and communication between you and your horse.
Book instructions for training: Smile, Nod Yes, Shake No, Kiss, Hug, Drink from a Bottle, Twist Front Legs, March, Stretch, Bow, Kneel, Camel Stretch, Crawl, Drunkards Shove, Lie Down, Sit Up, Pedestal, Salute, Rear and much, much more. Tricks are trained both in hand and at liberty - over 23 trick and trick combinations in an easy to read, easy to follow format, with lots of photo's for reference.
A number of horses are used in the photo illustrations (including 2 donkeys). Photo's follow the training of the animals while it happens...they do not show photos of seasoned animals, already trained.
This book is a great addition to any horse persons library. The trained maneuvers are both practical, and functional and aid the horse handler in creating a well rounded, trusting and communicative realtionship with thier horse.
