Equestrian Titles from the Lyons Press—Natural Horsemanship Explained by Robert M. Miller. DVM

Natural Horsemanship Explained

From Heart to Hands

By Robert M. Miller, D.V.M.

Introduction by Patrick Handley Ph.D.

Like other revolutionary explanations of behavior, “Natural Horsemanship”—the training approach that creates a bond by understanding and using a horse’s natural instincts—has its adherents and its skeptics. In his earlier book, The Revolution in Horsemanship, Robert M. Miller, D.V.M., traced the rise of Natural Horsemanship. In his new title, Natural Horsemanship Explained, he addresses the reasons why and how the method is so successful, so that horsemen of all levels of experience can use it to fullest advantage.

Helping to make the case for this positive approach are many examples from Dr. Miller’s long and varied career as horseman and veterinarian, as well as from the experiences of Pat Parelli, Clinton Anderson, Monte Roberts, John Lyons, and other noted Natural Horsemanship clinicians.

Especially enlightening are the author’s views on the foal imprinting techniques that he developed, as well as how enhancing the human-equine bond helps horses of all ages and disciplines. As an example, Dr. Miller offers a fascinating account of the training methods of police horses, by which they learn how to cope with crowds, explosions, and other “natural enemies” through the principles of Natural Horsemanship.

Natural Horsemanship Explained will convince even the most skeptical horseman of the indisputable value of this philosophy and practice. There is no one who can better make the case for strengthening the bond between us and our horses than the movement’s veterinary guru, whom generations of trainers, commentators, owners, and riders have come to respect and admire.
