Over, Under, Through free pdf Despite having over thousands of years selectively bred horses to be amenable to our ways of life, the fact remains that most of them still occasionally revert to being wild, sometimes at the most inconvenient moments. This varies from horse to horse due to individual temperament and learned behaviors, but common to all horses is a three-million-year-old risk assessment and thought pattern when it comes to anything that could be a predator, or could hide a predator, or could provide a launch point for a predatorand the list goes on! Because of the innate prey-animal fear in horses, and because their instinctual flight-or-fight reaction is dangerous to the humans around or on them, horses must be trained to accept strange or new situations and objects. While many training books have explained ways to progressively desensitize horses in the arena or round pen, this new book from horsewoman Vanessa BeeFounder of the International Horse Agility Club and 3-Minute Horsemanshiptakes the concept of teaching horses to accept what they think is terrifying out into the world around us. When examining any common obstacle that might scare a horse, you can see that it is usually made up of one, two, or three elements: It is either over something, like a bridge, or involves going under something, such as low branches, or you must go through, as in a gateway. Sometimes there can be a combination of all three elements! To deal with such challenges, Bee has provided Six Blueprint Exercises to lay the foundation of skills you need as a trainer and a horse to go over, under, and through. Then, she takes us through 50 common scenariossuch as riding over white lines or dark shadows, or riding past farm animals or marshmallow hay balesand illustrates with small, building-block steps and photos, what is needed to change the horse s reaction and behavior, assuring a smoother, safer ride down the road. With lessons explained in Bee s trademark keep it simple style, Over, Under, Through: Obstacle Training for Horses is one book from which every horse and horse owner will benefit."

About Vanessa Bee

Vanessa Bee is the founder of the International Horse Agility Club (thehorseagilityclub.com). With a training facility in England and her own method known as Positive Horsemanship, she specializes in building relationships between the horse and the handler from the ground up. Vanessa has been around horses most of her life, working in racing stables throughout her teens, then driving competitively into her early twenties when she was given an unridable racehorse as a wedding present. Very soon Vanessa realized that there had to be a better way than the bigger stick, bigger bit method of riding commonly offered, and in the late nineties Vanessa began to read, study, and work with some of the greatest horsemen of the age. She soon discovered that there are as many ways of teaching horsemanship as there are horses and handlers in the world. As a qualified teacher with a degree in education, Vanessa has used her skills to develop a series of courses that teach people of all abilities and experience levels to achieve a positive relationship with their horse. By creating the International Horse Agility Club, she has provided a social and competitive outlet for those relationships to grow."
