John Lyons’ Troubleshooting!
In this outstanding guide to anticipating and managing horse behavioral and training issues, “America’s Most Trusted Horseman”—renowned trainer and clinician John Lyons—teaches readers how to “troubleshoot” common problems such as spooking, running away, rearing, kicking, head-shyness, balking at water, refusing to load, and more. Lyons explains why horses are prone to certain reactions and then demonstrates how his methods can help prevent a minor miscommunication between horse and rider from escalating into a frustrating—and often dangerous—battle of wills. Each piece of the training process is accompanied by a clear, explanatory photo, and step by pictorial step, readers will find themselves closer to better, more understanding relationships with their horses.
For over twenty years, JOHN LYONS has helped thousands of horse owners worldwide improve their partnerships with their horses. When not on the road conducting clinics, demonstrations, and symposiums, Lyons resides at his Cowboy Up Ranch in Parachute, Colorado.
