Since 2004 in the UK, the Centre of Applied Animal Ethology (COAPE) has been developing EMRA™, a revolutionary and highly successful way of treating behaviour problems in companion animals. EMRA™ is based on emotional assessment of the individual dog or cat rather than the quasi-diagnoses of behaviour problems of old that have often lead to standardised and unnecessarily complicated approaches to treatment.
Every rider would like to ride their horse as well as possible, but how do we go about it the right way? This book explains why and, above all, how to classically train a horse, for example, we have to look at each horse as an individual - what problems does he have? How is his natural crookedness expressed? What is his personality like?
Keeping stallions is definitely not child’s play, but it also isn’t as difficult and dangerous as is often assumed. Because even stallions are, above all, “just” horses and, as with all other members of their species, correct management and solid basic education and training are required for a good partnership with their owner. However, there is still a little more to consider if you want to live the dream of owning a noble stallion.
The childhood dream of happiness on horseback stays with many people even during long breaks from riding that are often due to work or family commitments. This book presents different options for a harmonious relationship between returner and horse, so that a happy memory can become a workable vision for the future.
You can only react appropriately even in difficult situations and adapt to horses if you can correctly interpret their language. Pain and discomfort, annoyance, but also relaxation and contentment are easy to spot if you know what parts of the body and signals to look out for.
