IMPRINT TRAINING OF THE NEWBORN FOAL: A SWIFT, EFFECTIVE METHOD FOR PERMANENTLY SHAPING A HORSE'S LIFETIME
by Robert M. Miller
Probably one of the most exciting and beneficial breakthroughs in equine psychology and training in the last decade has been the procedure the author calls "imprint training," the behavior-shaping learning process that occurs immediately after a foal's birth.

Because horses are flighty prey animals, they are fast learners and have infallible memories. Also, because of their size, behavioral problems are not as easily solved as with other smaller species. Consequently, behavioral science has made greater strides in the equine species than any other.

This book contains Dr. Miller's theories and techniques, including step-by-step procedures involving bonding, habituation and sensitization.
