Written by Andy Curry

Could a horse trainer, born about 154 years ago, teach us anything new today? Wouldrepparttar methods be old hat or would they be useful?

The answer is a resounding Yes!, they are enormously useful.

The horse training expert referred to is named Jesse Beery. Beery was a world famous horse trainer fromrepparttar 125798 late 1800's who possessed amazing ability with horses.

Fortunately, Beery's secrets remain after all these years. His information can be found in his book he wrote inrepparttar 125799 late 1800's. However, very few copies of his book exist. It is virtually impossible to find an original - much less one that is readable.

Here is a partial reading fromrepparttar 125800 first chapter of Beery's book:

Fear isrepparttar 125801 principal motive which causesrepparttar 125802 colt to resist training. It is natural for him to kick against an unknown object at his heels, to pull his head out ofrepparttar 125803 halter as from a trap, and if of a bad disposition, to strike and bite if he does not thoroughly understand you.

His fear is governed by his sense of touch, sight and hearing; and it is through these senses we obtain a mastery, and atrepparttar 125804 same time remove his fears ofrepparttar 125805 halter,repparttar 125806 robe,repparttar 125807 harness andrepparttar 125808 wagon. These arerepparttar 125809 fixed laws which governrepparttar 125810 actions of all horses, andrepparttar 125811 training of a colt is merely teaching him not to fearrepparttar 125812 working apparatus, but to respect his master, and to obey his commands as soon as he has learned their meaning.
