TEN GOLDEN RULES

OF

HORSE TRAINING

Universal Laws for All Training Levels

and Riding Styles

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars - Excellent!

"I wish this book had been available five years ago when I first became involved with horses. Dr. Nock's "Ten Golden Rules" is the first book anyone interested in training a horse - or even owning one - should read. Except for clearly outlining a procedure for tactfully establishing your superior rank within your 'herd', this is not a 'How To' recipe book. Instead, Dr. Nock explains basic learning theory as it applies specifically to the horse. With the information this book provides you can better understand, evaluate, and implement any of the more detailed training programs promoted by today's top trainers, solve problems those programs don't address, or even develop your own training program. Learning the 'Ten Golden Rules' will benefit both you and your horse."

"Ride for Tomorrow" is a book about dressage in its truest form: training of the horse, with the primary goal of improving the health and well-being of the horse. Unlike modern dressage, which has very different goals (often not in the best interest of the horse), this original dressage is for every horse and every rider, no matter what "style" of riding or "sport" they participate in. Indeed, any person who desires to actually ride a horse should learn this information inside and out!

What makes this book stand out is the simplicity of presentation. All of the concepts are very old, but the information is presented in a way that a beginner will be able to understand and immediately apply. This simplicity also makes this book a gem for the advanced rider. The basics of the concept of straightness in the horse's body can never be reviewed often enough, and the exercises presented are powerful.

In addition to all the great, detailed explanations about the horse's body, balance, and rider's aids, this book is filled with priceless bits of information and advice.  "Ride for Tomorrow" is simply a must-have for every rider.

Yvonne Welz, Editor The Horse's Hoof and avid dressage rider.

This collection of articles has received a great deal of attention and praise since I published it in 2007. Nevertheless, although the information in it remains valid, the area of stress is a rapidly evolving one. Over the past eight years, advancements in our understanding of how it affects health and welfare have been dramatic. Consequently, I have decided to withdraw the collection from distribution until I can up date it. Bruce ... April 20, 2014.

Police departments all over the world are in a state of instability. The prolonged economic downturn affected them just like the rest of us. Mounted police units have been hit particularly hard, as cities struggle to find ways to maintain basic law enforcement services. Quit a few cities have totally eliminated their mounted patrols to save money. There are even Facebook pages asking for help to save mounted patrols.

So, Scott and I have tried to do just that with this article. We would like it to be distributed as widely as possible. Hopefully, it will find it’s way into the hands of city and law enforcement officials who make decisions about the future of law enforcement in their community. You can help by passing the article along to as many people as possible. It’s a fairly large article ... too large to send by email. But you can let people know it’s here for download. Thanks for your help. Bruce
