Dick Pieper’s The Language of Horses will help any rider use the knowledge of equine characteristics to initiate communication and create successful interaction in a way the horse can understand. For example, an understanding of equine body language enables the human to alter what might seem an aggressive approach to the horse. By changing his approach, the person can create a sense of security, rather than fear, in his horse. Likewise, the horse’s quick flight-or-fight reflexes, designed for self-protection, can be channeled into fast responses to the rider’s cues. Consistency and repetition are key to the rider developing the horse’s differentiation skills with minimal stress. The resulting and growing predictability experienced by both helps create a calm horse comfortable with his rider.

Maybe you compete in versatility ranch-horse events or plan to meet that challenge and want to take advantage of every opportunity to polish your performance. Perhaps cattle work can put a fresh perspective on your riding program, or you simply want a handy, responsive horse, no matter what your day’s ride might bring. Whatever your interest in Ranch-Horse Versatility, Colorado horseman Mike Major is uniquely qualified to provide the information to take your horse program to the next level. A rancher by profession and a competitor by choice, Major has developed the horsemanship expertise to be successful in both venues, in large part because he draws no real distinction between his show horses and ranch horses. A Major Cattle Company horse might well work on the ranch today and compete in the arena tomorrow, a dual-purpose approach that has proven successful. Major and his stallion, Smart Whiskey Doc, have claimed multiple national titles—American Quarter Horse Association 2006 Bayer Select Working Cow Horse World Champion, World’s Greatest Versatility Horse at the National Versatility Ranch Horse Association 2008 and 2009 National Finals, and AQHA 2009 and 2010 Versatility Ranch Horse Open World Champion. Plus, in 2010 Major rode Black Hope Stik, a daughter of Smart Whiskey Doc, to become the inaugural Battle in the Saddle Ranch Remuda Champion and the first Project Cowboy Champion. American stock-horse associations were founded on the backs of such talented horses, and versatility competition has brought a renewed appreciation for these all-around athletes. In his book, Major shares how he develops such responsive, maneuverable horses. His understanding, how-to tips and thoughtful insights in Ranch-Horse Versatility can help you sharpen your skills to ride effectively, compete successfully and show your horse to advantage.

The key to enjoying a safe, fun, and fulfilling partnership with your horse is having the knowledge and confidence to lead and train him. All great partnerships are based on three elements: trust, respect, and communication. Whenever one element is lacking, the partnership fails to form or ceases to exist. When it comes to interacting with horses, we unintentionally tend to be our own worst enemies. By design, horses and humans perceive the world from opposite ends of the scale: horses are prey animals with an ingrained flight or fight response, and humans are predators. Because of this, before you train a horse, you have to understand basic horse psychology and what makes your horse tick. When you know how the horse processes his thoughts and why he does the things that he does, both good and bad, you can accomplish anything. If you don't understand how your horse perceives the world around him, then you will struggle with your horsemanship goals. Clinician Clinton Anderson knows good horsemanship isn't always easy. With over 20 years of experience working with horses and helping people safely train them, Clinton has become an expert at bringing out the best in both. In this highly illustrated book, he shares his philosophy, knowledge and wisdom, detailing what he feels every person should know about horses before working with them. Breaking down the crucial elements of his method of horsemanship, Clinton explains how to become an effective leader that your horses will look to for guidance and how to successfully start a mutually enjoyable partnership. Readers will learn what motivates horses, the basics of respect and why it must be established, and the role pressure and body language play in communicating. Clinton prescribes a tried-and-true formula to train a well broke horse and discusses the three elements that go into becoming an all-around great horseman. Filled with commonsense explanations and personal anecdotes from Clinton's life, the lessons in Philosophy provide the instruction and inspiration needed to help you achieve your horsemanship dreams.
