These are the common problems riders at all levels deal with on a regular basis, such as bucking, rearing, bolting, pulling, grinding teeth, refusing fences, and running out - to name but a few! Doug Payne has made a name for himself in equestrian circles as the "go-to guy" when it comes to finding a way forward with problem horses. Now he's sharing his tips and techniques for solving some of the most common contact issues, unruly outbursts, and jumping problems that riders experience. Learn about causes for problem behaviour - from physical issues to "holes" in a horse's education - and discover dozens of safe and professionally tested solutions and step-by-step exercises.
