The Undisciplined Horse

Ulrik Schramm wrote a number of books and The Undisciplined Horse is not only based on the book of the same title first published in Germany in 1983, but also includes a wealth of material from The Trouble with Horses, which was published in 1986. The two books were bestsellers in both the German and the English languages and the advice has never been bettered. Now enlarged and updated, with the benefit of new colour photographs by leading equestrian photographer Bob Langrish, The Undisciplined Horse will be of immense value to riders and trainers of all levels. The underlying theme is that in order to resolve behavioural and training problems in horses, it is first necessary to understand the horse's character, instincts and thought-processes. The horse owner is not only provided with constructive, common-sense advice on how to deal with unwelcome behaviour such as kicking, shying, bucking or rearing, but is also encouraged to understand why it happens. The content is extremely comprehensive and wide-ranging and includes simple everyday problems encountered in the stable and field, difficulties encountered whilst travelling or hacking out, actual vice and deeply ingrained habits, as well as all types of schooling and training problems. This unique work of reference is distinguished by the author's deep knowledge of horses and horsemanship and by his desire to develop a better understanding and a genuine partnership between horse and rider. The new Undisciplined Horse will be welcomed by everyone involved with horses.

About the Author

Ulrik Schramm was a veterinary surgeon, a leading judge and an accomplished horseman. Whilst he understood the need for discipline in the horse, he believed passionately that all training should be based on a real understanding of equine psychology and he was totally dedicated to the proper education of horses for all branches of equitation. His philosophy is best summed up in his own words: 'Seat is obviously an essential element in mastery of the horse, but the rider's head is surely as important as his seat.' A talented artist, Schramm combined this skill with his deep understanding of horses and riders to produce line drawings that emphasize to perfection the points made in his text.
