The Natural Horse: Lessons From the Wild (Paperback)
THE WILD, FREE-ROAMING HORSE of the U.S. Great Basin has given us a new vision for a vibrant and healthy natural horse. That vision is embodied in this newly updated and classic work, The Natural Horse: Lessons From the Wild.
Paddock Paradise. Based on wild horse family band movements in their native ranges, Paddock Paradise is a unique tracking system within which horses living together in groups forge their own paths. Horse owners disburse hay and other essentials along these paths to stimulate movement and vitality "on track."
Reasonably Natural Diet. Jackson took note in his range studies of the complexity of the wild horse diet. He and his colleagues have deduced a safe diet for horses, but urge the university sector to enter wild horse country to give the wild horse diet the comprehensive research it deserves.
Natural Rider. Jackson holds that a paradigm for the natural rider should be rooted in the Natural Gait Complex of the species as seen in the wild. To this end he has laid out a painstaking analysis of the natural gaits based on his observations of wild horse behaviors.
The Natural Trim. As a professional hoof man fully aware of the damaging effects of shoeing on the horse's hoof, Jackson saw the need to enter wild horse country to see what nature intended for the horse's hoof, and then report his findings. The Natural Horse delivers that message and a trimming method.
