Whether in a parade, on the battlefield, behind a plow, or in the saddle, people have been enjoying the beauty, majesty, and strength of the horse for hundreds of years. Now more than ever horse owners are paying attention to how the horse functions and how to improve the quality of life for their equine companion. Ultimate Horse Care focuses on practical horse care for the modern horse. From common ailments to alternative methods of treatment, you will get to know your horse inside and out.
Finally, a comprehensive collection of world-renowned equine expert Linda Tellington-Jones' healing equine bodywork and training exercises, for use both on the ground and in the saddle. In one fabulously illustrated book, those new to Linda's approach are provided with a clear, step-by-step introduction to the Tellington Method, while those familiar with her work finally have the ultimate go-to reference. The book is divided into three parts. Part One briefly explains the background of the Tellington Method and then discusses the reasons for unwanted behavior and poor attitude in horses. Part Two, arranged alphabetically, contains a compendium of 72 common behavioral, training and health issues, many of which horse people face on a daily basis. In this A to Z format, from Aggressive to Other Horses to Weaving, Linda discusses the possible reasons for these behaviors or problems and offers conventional methods of solving these challenges, as well as training solutions using the Tellington Method. Part Three presents—for the first time in one volume—the complete body of work that makes up the Tellington Method: the Tellington TTouches, Ground Exercises, and Ridden Work. At the end of this section, there is also a detailed case study, which includes 49 photographs showing every step along the way to successfully teaching your horse to load.

"For centuries, society could not have functioned without the horse; not only was it used for transportation, it was also a working animal on farms, in mines, and on the battlefield. this diversity consequently led to the development of myriads of breeds throughout the world. Climatic and geographical differences, not to mention the intervention of man, also played their part in forming the breeds. Those originating in desert areas not only had fine coats to enable them to deal with hot daytime temperatures, they were also hardy enough to withstand plummeting temperatures at night. At the other extreme, breeds living in colder lands developed heavier, thicker coats to make them impervious to wind and rain. man was not content to let evolution take its natural course, however, and decided to take a hand in the matter, interbreeding horses with different characteristics to produce and accentuate specific qualities. thus the different breeds were developed to fit their roles. Warhorses became large and stocky, able to carry medieval knights in heavy chain mail, while draft horses were bred for strength to till the land or to heave heavy carts across difficult terrain. The ultimate breeding triumph is undoubtedly the Thoroughbred, which was developed for the racecourse, and therefore pleasure. It is aristocratic and finely-tuned and its bloodlines are in many of the modern breeds we know today. It is responsible for adding quality, beauty, speed, and stamina. Not content with a comprehensive coverage of the horse breeds and types of the world, there are also sections on care to give the reader a complete and rounded insight into the pleasures, as well as problems, of looking after horses."--cover flaps

Recently revised from the Mid-February edition as of 11/01/08. I've made a very concerted effort to try and incorporate as much pertinent horsemanship knowledge into the chapters; as a way to better serve the novice; average, or below average horseplayer. I truly believe that after reading this book, you will immediately come away with a better sense of yourself (as a horseplayer), and will soon realize where exactly it is you want to be as a horseplayer. Or, you might have a wonderful epiphany and realize that maybe you too can become a more successful horseplayer. Maybe, a "professional"! I must admit that if you're taking yourself at all seriously, you are also going to need my newest horse handicapping book... "The Tuttle Way" or "The Tuttle Way II." are a bit more advanced, and it can only help further your development as a Horseplayer (http: //thetuttlemathpsm.com/).
