Meredith Hodges, well know trainer and prolific writer on donkey and mule behavior, has put together the first COMPLETE book on mule training. The book covers all aspects of the subject and applies to all types of training. Training Mules and Donkeys ''will fill a place that has been waiting for it for many years'' said Betsy Hutchins, co-founder of the American Donkey and Mule Society.
This book is a 'no-resistance' training manual covering simple psychology and training techniques to help the trainer toward a more enjoyable and rewarding experience with their longears. Extremely complete, it covers all aspects of training from starting on the lunge line to driving, to dressage and everything in between. Plenty of black and white photos accompany the fascinating text plus there's a full color photo section in the middle. The 31 chapters are interesting to read and give a good insight into the psychology of the donkey and mule. Besides training and understanding these animals, the book also enlightens the reader on grooming, handling and caring for donkeys and mules.
