FROM GO TO WHOA – Training your own horse!
Written by Pam Neal to help you train your own horse.
From Go To Whoa has been written out of love for helping riders reach their goals in training their own horses. Written by Pam Neal, one of Australia’s leading Western Breeds trainers, having over 3 decades of experience in training , campaigning and breeding horses.
From Go To Whoa was born out of realising there are many riders and handlers of horse’s that cannot for one reason or another make it to clinics or lessons. This book will help give riders and handlers confidence and an insight into how to train their horse at home.
This book is for both riders and handlers covering early education of the foal, ground-work, lunging, progressive training under saddle and preparation for competition with the halter horse, lunge liner, ridden western horse and ranch riding. Tips on how to get your hunt horse’s head set and more!
Is your horse hard to catch?
Have you ever struck a problem with catching a horse in the paddock? Horse’s learn by repetition, they soon work out that there is work at the other end of that feed bucket you have in your hand. There are ways around it, but you do have to put the work in.
Teaching foals and older horse’s to float.
Training foals to load into a float is relatively easy, they are actually a lot easier to introduce them to the float than some older horses that have been allowed to get away with not accepting it.
Body language while lunging
You will read how using the proper body language from the get go will help you in the show pen later on down the track. Nothing happens when free lunging a horse but getting them fit, that’s not a bad thing in the getting fit department, however, free lunging, allowing your horse to place his head, neck and body where he likes to carry it is not good practice.

Chock full of tips and tricks of the trade. Touching on all of the obstacles that your horse will no doubt come in to contact with.
The health of your horse
Keeping on top of your horses health which includes a section on dentistry, keeping up with the maintenance of your horse’s feet, even in the off season, vaccinations, supplements I use and 100% recommend and the way I fed my horses and my clients horses for over 3 decades with nothing but positive results and lovely comments from many people who thought my horses always looked the goods.
Halter preparation for both the weanling and yearling.
I write about how crucial it is to keep a good eye on your foal or horse when preparing them for the show pen, keeping a good eye on their joints for any unusual growth and checking them for heat. We all know that the way to prepare a halter horse is not to feed it so much feed that it turns into an overweight blimp – right? A fat horse doesn’t make a halter horse.
Transitioning into the ridden horse
You will read about sending your horse away to be broken in right through to putting a pretty, long and elegant “set” on your hunter horse with lot’s more in between!
