Some horses drive their riders to distraction by simply not moving under the saddle, and nothing the rider does seems to stimulate them.
The rider's dwindling enthusiasm will then only make matters worse, making the horse even less active and motivated. This book discusses the possible causes of a lack of motivation - from physical problems and incorrect feeding, to permanent under- or over-demand of the horse. It outlines solutions that can recover a seemingly hopeless situation, and shows how, with discipline and creativity, it is possible to turn an idle creature into a motivated competition or leisure horse
