In the early twentieth century, the proliferation of farm tractors dramatically eased the burden on America’s farmers. It seemed the day of the horse-drawn plough was well over. And yet today, with a new generation working smaller spreads for reasons of necessity, economics, or personal conviction, draft horses are going back to work in a big way, and proving their worth once more. This book, by a widely respected trainer of working horses, aims to show those new to farming with horses—or those simply in need of a brush-up—everything they need to make the old ways work like new.

With a wealth of color illustrations and clear, to-the-point prose, Farming with Horses reviews the different types of harness and collar, explains how to select a work horse and how to hitch a horse to an implement, and fully describes lateral and longitudinal alignment, rein grips, and every other aspect of farming with horses.
