Catching Horses Made Easy (Intelligent Horsemanship)
by: Marks, Kelly

Every owner knows the frustration of not being able to catch their horse or pony but by following Kelly's practical advice you will soon have horses that positively want to be caught! A horse's natural inclination is to live in cooperation rather than conflict and the essence of this book is to help you to work with the horse and not against him. Kelly shows the reader how to look at things from the horse's viewpoint and by doing so to make him want to be with us and to follow us. Kelly writes about initial handling in the stable and in the field and describes the ways in which we can improve our body language so that he is comfortable being with us. Working with the methods described by Kelly you will soon have a horse that will not only want to come with you but will also be a generally more willing partner. Color photos. 24 pgs.

Handling The Untouched Horse (Intelligent Horsemanship)
by: Marks, Kelly

Few things are more rewarding than meeting a horse that is untouched by humans and over a period of minutes, hours or days causing him to believe that humans are not so bad after all - in fact that it is even good to be near them! In this book Kelly Marks writes about the techniques and skills required to achieve the answers to one of the many problems she encounters most frequently. Beginning with ways to catch the horse and separate him from his companions, Kelly proceeds to describe how to put a first headcollar on and then to lead the horse. As with all her teaching, Kelly bases her advice on experience gained from her work handling a wide variety of horses and ponies at her demonstrations and clinics around the world.
