Every horse, from the pampered show-hunter to the family pet, is faced at one time or another with an object or situation that is overwhelmingly terrifying, or just downright confusing. With his systematic approach to “bombproofing,” Sergeant Rick Pelicano of the Maryland National Capitol Park Police shares his methods on how to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to training your horse to deal with such situations. Topics covered include The Three “T’s of Success: Training, Technique, and Timing Bombproofing Strategies Dealing with Bad Habits and Nasty Tricks Working with Bicycles, Cars, Plastic Tarps, Smoke, Flags, Gunfire, and Much More
Pelicano vividly illustrates how to accustom your horse to a variety of circumstances, noises, and objects, thereby turning him into a more pleasurable, submissive, confident, and ultimately safer mount.
“…clear photos and easy-to-follow methods…[you and your horse] will both gain confidence and skills that will help you through the unexpected.”—Horse & Rider
