Retraining the Harness Racehorse

Retraining the Harness Racehorse

by Mary Anne Donovan-Wright & Robyn Cuffey

"At last, an easy, step-by-step guide to retraining harness racehorses for pleasure use is available for Standardbred owners... although books on training abound, none were specifically geared towards Standardbreds and their strengths and weaknesses until now. Both authors bring years of Standardbred retraining experiences to the work, and share them throughout the book."

Sleighs come in numerous styles, as ably demonstrated by Ursula Baier, a volunteer at Skyline Farm in North Yarmouth, Maine. Ursula takes you on a guided tour of the Skyline Farm collection of sleighs and cutters, pointing out the features that make each one unique. Then Robyn Cuffey of West Buxton, Maine, shows the proper techniques for driving a sleigh, along with some tips on how to turn and how to avoid getting into trouble in deep snow. Finally, Vicki Schmidt of Hebron, Maine, displays many different styles of sleighbell - including hip drops, shaft bells, body bells, hame bells, and saddle chimes - shows how to attach each style, and demonstrates how to accustom a horse to hearing and wearing bells.

The DVDs can be ordered for $31.50 plus $5.00 shipping & handling.
