Synopsis

Think Like a Pony on the Ground Work Book by Lynn Henry

Think Like A Pony is for parents and children. Some parents have young children who are 'pony mad', but they themselves have no understanding or knowledge of ponies. By reading this book with their children, they can learn together and enjoy the fascinating journey of understanding pony behaviour. Through this knowledge and understanding it can be seen how a pony can become: safe to be with, safe to handle, safe to ride and a willing friend and partner. The book is suitable for children between 6-12 years old. Work Book One is the follow on from the Foundation Book . The chapters cover: Your pony's feet, Developing Feel, Your equipment and using it, Protecting your personal space, Catching your pony, Putting on the halter, Can I touch you?, and Introducing the rope and stick to your pony. There are several chapters on using steady pressure to ask you pony to move. The final two chapters are concerned with gaining respect from your pony.

Reviews

The book is everything I'd hoped for: clear explanations, simple but progressive activities and published confirmation of many of the things I'd already learned [as a self-taught riding instructor], plus some bonuses...As someone who's learned all ground work as an adult, I wish this sort of material had been introduced to me as a child. Kicking On
