Great

This is primarily a book about techniques and problems regarding horse training. I am known as a horse nut. I have had horses all my life until recently and I grew up on a cattle/horse ranch. So needless to say I am very interested in the topic of the book.

Rashid discusses the most serious problems horses face that of the human attitude and temper. The author uses logical explanations and personal stories to explore and explain the root behavioral and training problems. The author tries to look at a situation from the viewpoint of the horse and proceed from there. Rashid attempts to explain why horses react in certain way and what you can do to counter it. The author adds a note of humor to his writing so it makes the book entertaining while the reader learns something. The book is well written. If you are a horse lover you will enjoy the book. Kevin Young does a good job narrating the book.

Another great book

Just another great book with so much learning and personable accessible information. My favourite part for me (though sad) was in the last chapter of how animals try to communicate with us. It would make relationships with our animals so much better as well as more productive if we would try to understand what they are trying to tell us a little more. I love Mark Rachid's writing style.

Considering the horse

Love Mark Rashid, have listened to a number of his audio books whilst mucking out and it has really made me consider the horses point of view more. I am looking at what the horse may be asking of me and consider this before just pushing on with my own thing. how blessed we are to have the trust of such beautiful creatures.
