Understanding Nervousness in Horse and Rider


Understanding Nervousness in Horse & Rider, by Moyra Williams
Riders may be nervous around horses for a number of reasons: just their size and strength; a former bad experience; fear of "looking bad" or doing something wrong. Horses can be nervous too, for reasons of their own. Williams originally published this in 1990; this edition carries chapters by several other notables discussing nervousness in horses during breeding, dressage, jumping, and racing. Color photos and pen-and-ink drawings illustrate.
