About the Author
Richard Maxwell has spent a lifetime studying equine behaviour, and after ten years in the Household Cavalry went to California to train with Monty Roberts. He is well known for his success with problem horses, both at home and at his popular 'roadshows', using the horse's own psychology and natural instincts to restore trust and mutual respect between horse and handler. Max has also written Understanding Your Horse and From Birth to Backing (co-written with Johanna Sharples as well), both published by David & Charles. He lives in Essex. Johanna Sharples has written for Britain's best-selling equestrian magazine Your Horse. Having written regular features on Max, and sent her own problem horse to him, Jo is well acquainted with his work and its amazing effects. She lives in Peterborough.

This book is fantastic. Its got 3 main chapters, one detailing groundwork which helps the horses balance and helps to form a bond between the two of you. The second chapter progresses to 'distance work'. It gives a very good description of long-lining and the processes associated with it. The third is ridden work where you bring everything together. Other chapters cover problems you may encounter and how to correct them and a bit about horse behaviour.
All of the exercises are accompanied by step-by-step pictures which really helps visualise what you are ment to be doing. It has loads of pictures of the wonderful Pelo also. He was a truely magnificant horse.
