Round Penning: First Steps to Starting a Horse

Horse Training How-To, no. 1

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


If you're starting a horse or need to turn around an older horse that's proving a challenge, round pen training is your very first step.

The changes you can make there are amazing - but to make these advances, you'll need to know that there is a tried-and-true system. It's more than simply running a horse around in circles; there are objective and progressive steps. It's easy - but you can't go in without a plan.

This guide to the proven methods of John Lyons, shows you exactly what to do, in which specific order, and why. Follow this material as written to turn around older horses, those "set in their ways," as well.

Section I of "Round Penning: First Steps to Starting a Horse" gives you a 5-day, step-by-step plan to take with you to the round pen.

Section II goes on to offer 10 more lessons that you'll need to teach your young horse at this point in his life, (haltering, leading, lungeing, vices, gaining respect, hoof care, trailer loading & more).

Train your horse:

* to become a willing partner
* to deal with its fear
* to be ready for the first farrier visit
* to be much safer for you and your family to be around

Build a strong foundation for your green horse - or reset the attitude of a more mature horse. Do it today! He's only getting bigger!
