Product Information

Prof. Jesse Beery was the world's greatest horse trainer and breaker of all time: He could train any horse -- horses that ran away -- horses that pulled too hard -- horses that were spooked too easily -- horses that refused to be shoed. Whatever the problem, Beery knew how to fix it.

After becoming extremely successful in horse training, Beery decided to set up a horse training school, School of Correspondence in Horsemanship, to teach others his simple training techniques. He taught a great number of horse owners all over the country through his well-known home-study, horse-training manual: Prof. Beery's Mail Course in Horsemanship, a total of 8 books, published in 1908.

Prof. Beery's Mail Course in Horsemanship covers in detail the entire subject of colt training and habit breaking. The methods given are not newfangled ideas or theories but tried plans guaranteed to work out successfully.

  • Easily Understood

The instructions are written in plain, simple language that anyone, no matter how little education he may have, can easily understand. Plenty of illustrations are used so that after reading how to overcome a habit, like kicking for instance, you can see exactly how to go about it by referring to the illustration. What is true of kicking in this respect is also true of all other habits and colt training.

  • Training "Green" Colts

Complete instructions are given for training "green" colts (colts that have never been harnessed) so they will never have bad habits such as kicking, balking, etc. You are told at what age to begin a colt's training; how to teach it the commands "Get Up" and "Whoa" so that it will know and obey these commands no matter what might happen; how to hitch up a colt for the first time; how and when to begin hitching a colt double; in fact the subject of colt training is covered so thoroughly that you can, in a few hours, have a colt driving and working in the best possible manner.
