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.

I love this book! Mr Maxwell has a fantastic style of writing which is so easy to follow and really gets you thinking about the way that we are training our horses.
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.

I recently bought a 5yo ex racherhorse & bought this book a few weeks ago. It is very detailed yet easy to follow and even though I haven't been following the training program thoroughly, I have used a lot of the techniques mentioned in the book and already my horse and I are making great progress.

This book was excellent - the best one I have read, including books from Kelly Marks and Pippa Funnell. I have a young ex-racehorse that I am retraining and I am definitely going to give this system a go. It makes perfect sense. To get the most from this book I think you probably need some knowledge, but it is a fresh and common sense way of looking at things.

This is a really good clear book with lots of practical information. It's a fresh way of looking at training and thinking about one's own behaviour and assessment of the horse. I have found it invaluable.

I bought this book when I was on the verge of selling my horse due to his tricky behaviour. This book is easy to follow and understand. The exercises are easy to replicate in the school. Everyone who owns or rides a horse should read this book. After 2 days of following the instructions in this book I could see the difference. Instead of being overwhelmed with the amount of work my horse needs to make him safe, I look forward to spending time with him. It has given me loads of much needed confidence.
