This workbook moves forward from Basic Handling by continuing to develop the Learning Frame of Mind in more complex work in order to prepare the horse for safe riding. Whether the horse is green, unstarted, difficult, physically remedial or a rescue, the skills mapped out in this workbook guide you step-by-step towards developing a safe, comfortable and healthy riding horse.
