Okay, sounds like a great idea, at least the genuflecting on request. Mare
is New Age when she's not a Methodist, so we'll use incense and skip the
holy water to which I'm allergic anyway. Currently able to ride up the

For those folks who educate their equines in useful behaviors aside from
carrying riders, what are your favorite maneuvers? Any good books/videos
you like? I'd prefer to avoid using food rewards, but would like to hear
what you do and how even using treats.
