Publisher's Summary

You can’t build a house without strong foundations…and you can’t form a solid bond with your horse without a strong foundational relationship and fundamental training in place. 

Horse ownership opens the door to companionship, happiness, and stress relief. But to benefit from all of these things, you need to have a true bond with your horse. And you need to be able to trust they have all the foundational skills they need to keep both of you safe.

This is the key to successful horsemanship. Everything you need to know in order to do just that is right at your fingertips. 

In this three-in-one guide, you’ll discover:

  • The key principles of horsemanship—uncover how to share a common language with your horse 
  • How to choose a horse—explore the personality traits of the six most common breeds 
  • How to read your horse’s body language with the skill of top trainers like Buck Brannaman 
  • Key training methods explored
  • The most common mistakes made by handlers and trainers 
  • The challenges most frequently posed by horses
  • The art of desensitizing—guard against your horse becoming spooked at a critical moment 
  • The single most important skill you can teach your horse 
  • The pros and cons of disengagement—make sure you have the full picture 
  • Why "flexing" is a crucial skill to teach
  • The number-one thing you must not do in a frustrating training session 

And much more.

From building the foundational relationship with your horse to establishing fundamental skills through round-pen training…everything you need to know to form a solid partnership with your horse is right here.

Discover the secrets to building strong foundations with your horse…and watch as everything else falls into place naturally.
