Good Horse, Bad Habits: Practical Solutions to Problem Behavior in the Barn, under Saddle, and out in the World by Heather Smith Thomas
A go-to manual for any horse owner, this book addresses a range of equine behavioral problems, from the mild—refusing to stand still or tail rubbing, for example—to the severe, such as rearing under saddle or attacking other horses. With topics broken into four main categories—bad habits in the stable, correcting ground manners, problems under saddle, and the reluctant traveler—noted rancher and horse book author Heather Smith Thomas dissects each topic by addressing the source of the problem, providing solutions to the behavioral issue, and discussing what to do if the fix doesn’t stick.
