Equine Behavior: A Guide for Veterinarians and Equine Scientists is written for all those who really want to know what makes horses tick. Behavioral problems in the stable and under saddle are of concern to equine veterinarians worldwide because they lead to welfare issues, abuse and ultimately wastage. Equine veterinarians, trainers and handlers must be aware of each horse's behavior as a first step in detection of problems, whether they are clinical maladies or training issues. As they constantly study their horses' responses to their environments they are all, in effect, students of horse behavior. Drawing on over 1,000 references, Equine Behavior explores the subject from first principles by considering the behavior of free-ranging horses and considering ways in which management and training influences the responses of domestic horses. All too often veterinarians feel that management of the mental health of equine patients is beyond their expertise. This book addresses many important gaps to enable practitioners to understand how horses can learn to perform unwelcome behaviors and how to change those behaviors where appropriate. The new edition builds on the success of its pioneering predecessor and presents a thorough revision of all chapters to reflect the latest developments in this dynamic field. The chapter on equitation science has been expanded and there have been major revisions to the sections on stereotypic behavior, cognition studies, nutrition and housing. The book remains a must-have purchase for all veterinarians who deal with horses, for equine scientists, trainers and everybody with an interest in the subject. Features a practical, hands-on approach to all aspects of equine behavior Discusses all factors that effect equine behavior Contrasts normal behavior with abnormal behavior Reviews all behavioral problems Lists and reviews the latest drug therapies Addresses difficult-to-treat clinical problems such as head-shaking, with insights from the leading researcher in this area Provides a brief clinical evaluation of 'horse-whispering' Illustrates the key behavioral differences between horses and donkeys

“Far more than a book about how to care for a horse, though it stands out as one of the best on the subject . . . beautiful” (Susan Richards, author of Chosen by a Horse). This unique guide to horsemanship incorporates Eastern philosophy to describe how horses understand and respond to the flow of vital energy around them, and how they use this energy, called chi, to communicate with their herd, express dominance, and sense predators. Written by the award-winning author of The Scalpel and the Soul, and including forewords by Monty Roberts and Dr. Robert Miller, Zen Mind, Zen Horse shares safe, simple techniques to make you more receptive to your animal’s chi, so you can develop a calm and effective training style that will not only help your horse follow commands, but strengthen the spiritual bond between horse and rider.
Ryan has developed his training program, Connective Horsemanship, using a marriage of science and tradition. He develops a simple language for the rider and the horse, this language and his methods lead to a deletion of incorrect or so-called bad behaviour. Connective Horsemanship crosses all disciplines.Using an easy to understand commonsense approach Ryan provided straightforward instructions on rehabilitating and retraining horses with behaviour such as bucking, rearing, bolting, kicking, and refusing to load. Through experience and study with some of the biggest names in equine and animal behavioural research, Ryan has developed a way to safely work with your horse until you delete his bad behaviour and replace it with a desirable one.Ryan believes that all bad behaviour is directly related to a poor Go response, or an insufficient Stop response. Through appropriate training you'll learn to meet your horse in the middle of the languagebarrier and reaffirm, Go, Stop, and the other Basic Controls: turning left and right, backing up, and standing still. You'll use The Station Game to gradually build upon what your horse already knows in order to achieve success in new and challenging areas. And you'll get specific retraining tips for the most common behavioural problems Ryan sees in his clinics and on his well-known show on RFD-TV.
