A handbook to gaining respect at the mounting block -- with additional, essential exercises. Your horse dances about and tries to keep you from getting into the saddle because he's either scared -- or because there's been a coup in "your little herd of two." This handbook shows you the steps necessary to put an end to this annoying and dangerous habit regardless of its cause. Section I of "Get On Your Horse: Curing Your Mounting Problems" shows you, step-by-step, how to move your horse to the mounting block, to lunge, to give respect -- and to stand rock solid. Section II presents four additional chapters designed to "round out" or "book end" the previous training. Each offers buckets of additional insight into the specific issue at hand, that is, the horse that's begun "dancing" at the mounting block. (See the Table of Contents for a complete listing.) You will: * Correct the horse that has decided he's in charge, not you * Learn to position your horse no matter which way he moves * Learn to sidepass your horse toward you on the ground * Learn how to lunge your horse * Follow easy exercises to make lasting changes * Cure a situation that could grow dangerous, left unchecked Teach your horse to show respect, to move to the mounting block, to lunge, and to stand rock solid with this DIY roadmap to the methods of John Lyons written by Certifed Trainer Keith Hosman.
