Driving Horses shows you how to get the most out of your horse's power while establishing a relationship of confidence and trust. Learn how to hitch your horse to an implement, how to maintain correct lateral and longitudinal alignment, how to use various harness and collars, and more. Step-by-step colour photos show you how to accomplish all these tasks quickly and efficiently. Driving Horses is an indispensable how-to guide for first-time and seasoned horse owners and drivers alike - whether you have one horse or six, and whether you're using them to plow a field or pull a pleasure cart.

In the early twentieth century, the proliferation of farm tractors dramatically eased the burden on America’s farmers. It seemed the day of the horse-drawn plough was well over. And yet today, with a new generation working smaller spreads for reasons of necessity, economics, or personal conviction, draft horses are going back to work in a big way, and proving their worth once more. This book, by a widely respected trainer of working horses, aims to show those new to farming with horses—or those simply in need of a brush-up—everything they need to make the old ways work like new. With a wealth of color illustrations and clear, to-the-point prose, Farming with Horses reviews the different types of harness and collar, explains how to select a work horse and how to hitch a horse to an implement, and fully describes lateral and longitudinal alignment, rein grips, and every other aspect of farming with horses.

More than just practical advice, this is also a book for dreamers—even if you live in a city apartment, you will find your imagination sparked, and there’s no reason why you can’t, for example, make a loom and weave a rag rug.
