Editorial Reviews

Narrator Dan Lawson's tenor voice has a naturally affable quality, and his performance of Horses Never Lie expressively conveys the friendly wisdom behind renowned horse trainer Mark Rashid's methods and philosophy. Rashid's experiences with horses are narrated in a companionable manner, and his techniques in cultivating passive leadership with horses are easy to understand. Lawson does not overemphasize the audiobook's lessons, choosing to apply Rashid's maxim that the best way to guide is to let horses - or, in this case, listeners - figure things out on their own.

Publisher's Summary

A revolutionary approach to the techniques of working with horses, by a renowned instructor.
In Horses Never Lie, renowned horse trainer Mark Rashid challenges the conventional wisdom of "alpha leadership" and teaches the listener to become a "passive leader" - a counterpart to the kind of horse other members of a herd choose to associate with and to follow. Applying Rashid’s principles and techniques helps cultivate horse personalities that are responsive and dependable regardless of the rider. Reliving Rashid’s experiences with him, you will come to feel the same sort of compassion and appreciation for your horses that you do for the people in your life. This new edition features added introductory notes for each chapter that contribute to a more complete understanding of Rashid’s methods and philosophy.

First, determine whether your animal is a Horse.

Would you listen to Horses Never Lie, 2nd Edition again? Why?

I'll be listening to this again and again. I'm a dog lover and grew up with horses. horses have "prey minds" dogs have "hunter minds" but the relationship between people and their animals has a lot of similarities. Listening to this book brought back the best of my history with horses and from there the author added a lot to think about.

What did you like best about this story?

This book isn't a "how to" book, it's a parable, with lessons told in the form of stories.

Any additional comments?

I'll be buying more of this author's books. Any one who teaches any being, including self teaching -- will benefit from this book.

Seriously redundant

Pretty sure I learned the lesson this guy is trying to impart when I was 15. The lesson was also apparent by chapter 3 of his book where it was obvious we were going to take a long drawn out journey covering the exact same topic every chapter. While it is a valuable concept that every horse trainer, rider or handler should be aware of it is nothing new and shouldn't take 7 hours of narration to explain. Would have been better if it had been cut in half.

Not just for the four legged creatures in your life

A beautiful and restorative picture of how to work with any creature... The four legged and two legged kind. If you are in the business of people and have a love for horses this will be especially powerful for you and break your heart for even the most difficult ones you work with!
