Beginners guide to Horse Training audio book + FREE Gift

If you are reading this book, you are either looking to buy a horse or maybe you
have already acquired a horse. Either way the will need to be trained. Whether
you do it yourself or hire a trainer to train the horse for you.

You already know the cost of purchasing a horse can range from about $1000 to
$20,000. You may have estimated the cost of feeding, shoeing, and health care
to run you about $2,000 per year. That $2,000 per year is if you have property in
the country and will keep the horse with you. If you are planning on boarding
your horse, then you can expect an additional $2,000 to $3,000 per year.

Assuming you are planning on riding your horse an average of 350 hours per
year, you will want to include in all those expenses the cost of your health
insurance and possible time off from work. Since you are asking yourself,
Why? I will explain. There are thousands of people each year that receive
injuries from horseback riding. Twenty-five percent of those injuries happen to
children who are 16 years of age and younger. Many of the head injuries lead to
brain injury.

The brain injuries can cause serious damages that have a lifelong effect.
Unfortunately we are not talking about injuries caused riding rodeos. The
majority of these mishaps occur during recreational riding. Eighty percent of the
fatal accidents occur at normal horse speeds and are not caused because the
horse bucked or reared up.

As it turns out you are safer riding a motorcycle than you are on the back of a
horse. Researchers tell us that motorcyclists average 7,000 hours of riding time
per serious accident, while horseback riders can expect an accident to happen
for every 350 hours of riding time.

The best method of stopping injury accidents is education. A properly trained
horse is less likely to misbehave, and he will be a much safer animal to ride if he
has been taught not to behave in a way that will cause a serious injuries. These
actions will include biting, kicking, or running away with a rider. A well-trained
horse will be much more patient with the odd habits of the untrained person.

Riding on the back of an untrained horse is like driving a car that does not have
any brakes. You can take them out for a test run, but you may come back dead.
Even thought the horses intentions are good, if he doesnt have experience, you
are riding around with a creature that weighs over a thousand pounds and likes
to do whatever he wants. As an investment, horses are more of a liability. The
horse has the potential of hurting someone and his resale value is next to
nothing.

If you have an untrained horse, he can be dangerous. You probably didnt buy
him just to put him out to pasture and get fat and lazy. Just remember training

your horse makes your horse more accessible to you as well as being useful and
safer to be around.

If you dont seem to have enough time to train a horse, you can hire a trainer.
Depending on the training the horse needs, training can take anywhere from two
months to a year to be trained. The end results you will have a horse that is well
trained. However you will still be untrained unless you are already an
experienced rider and just dont have the time to train your own horse. If you are
not an experienced rider, you are not allowed to participate in the training of your
horse. This means you will have to find training for yourself.

For a whole lot less money than you will pay for a trainer, you can train a horse
on your own. You will both be learning at the same time. Of course the horse
will not be rideable for a portion of that time, but you will learn some things
before you get on the back of that horse.

Here are some tips for the novice horseback rider.

If this is the first time your have owned a horse, it would be a good idea to
pay a professional trainer to help you choose the right horse for you pay
out the money for a horse.

You will always want to supervise children when they are around horses.
Make sure the children are not in the line of fire should the horse decide to
kick.

If you have children, you will want them to know all about horse safety.

When you are looking for a saddle to purchase, make sure to purchase a
saddle that has release catches to ensure a fallen rider will not be
dragged by the horse because of a foot caught in the stirrups.

Make sure you invest in an equestrian helmet that meets the ASTM
standards.

Do not allow a horse to nibble or kiss you, not even a young horse. This
can turn into biting and is very hard to stop.

Do not wear any loose fitting clothes. It may catch on tack, branches or
fences.

Never sneak up on a horse from behind.

Chapter 2 Tips on Buying a Horse

If you havent already made the purchase of a horse, here is something you
might want to keep in mind. Have a vet go with you to look at the horse before
finalizing the purchase. As the vet is looking over the horse, let him tell you what
he learns about the horse. You will have the opportunity to ask the vet questions
about the horse. If the vet does not feel the horse is right for you, listen to him
when he tells you not to buy the horse.

If the horse you are looking at has a certain temperament, specific training or
lack of training, he may that you being a new horse owner may have trouble with
the horse later on down the road and may recommend that you not purchase
that particular horse. Take for example; a well-trained cutting horse is not
necessarily a suitable pleasure riding horse because they were trained to do a
specific job.

By taking a vet with you to look at a horse, you will not only be paying for a
check-up for the horse, but also for the vets ex

By taking a vet with you to look at a horse, you will not only be paying for a
check-up for the horse, but also for the vets expertise with horses. Some people
may believe that it isnt the vets business to find the proper match for you,
however you and the horse you purchase or dont purchase will be better off.
So, if you take a vet with you to look at a horse, it is best to listen to him. He
may tell you, if you purchase a particular horse, that the horse will need a
professional trainer.

Many sellers like to attend when the vet checks the horse, but they prefer the
seller say nothing during the examination. The seller could influence your
perceptions and do nothing for your confidence.

The vet will also check the horse for any physical ailments. This will prevent you
from buying a horse with an existing condition that may prevent the horse from
performing, as you would like for him to do. If you buy a horse to ride, you dont
want to end up with a horse whose legs can no longer sustain the weight of a
rider, or spends the majority of your time and money with the vet.

If the horse has an existing condition you are aware of, and ask the vet to check
it out, the vet may decline or he will inform you of the problems associated with
the condition before moving on to something else. Vets use professional ethics
and many times will not report on a horse belonging to an existing client because
of conflict of interests.

When it comes down to the vet check, many people dont want to listen to
someone elses advice and will not have the vet perform a check-up before
making the purchase. New horse owners on the other hand should know that

having a vet check the horse can save you thousand if not tens of thousands of
dollar by not purchasing the wrong horse.
