A Detailed and Comprehensive Study
Second Edition Revised and Expanded
by Doris L. Ganton

This book is written with the training of a colt in mind, but the instructions can just as easily be followed to train an older animal or a saddle horse to drive. In the case of a saddle horse (depending on his previous training and existing knowledge) many steps can be speeded up or even omitted, but basically the steps remain the same.
