    "Horse stories jam-packed with training tips and"

    an understanding of horse behavior and needs.

    Mark Rashid is a good writer and deftly shares numerous training methods and problem solving solutions within memorable stories. The stories make for a good teaching method, making the ideas easier to remember and apply.

    The pdf file of illustrations that are in the written book is a generous addition to the audio book and I downloaded, opened, and enjoyed all the illustrations first before listening to the book. As he told the stories, the drawing that went with it was easily remembered.

    The original chapters of the first edition of the book, written some years ago, were read, then followed with commentary by Mark Rashid as he reconsidered his original training ideas. Most of the time he simply added more that he had learned in the meantime, and a few times he had changed his mind about a method and explained why and what he now chose as a better method. We all change over time and I like the way he chose to edit this book.

    I don't like sad stories, but although there are some moving memories shared, they are meaningful and precious and not heart-breaking. There are a few hilarious moments shared too.

    More people seem to be getting aware of better ways to treat and be with animals and it is trainers who are in the best position to further this evolution. Well, the "good" trainers, at least.

    Mark Rashid's books are a contribution to humanity's evolution and awareness.

    Graceful narration. Well done all around.

    Story
    "An Amazing Amazing Amazing Book"
    Where does Considering the Horse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've read/listened to every Mark Rashid book on here and all I can say is, Mark.... write faster.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Considering the Horse?

    Doc.... I went through that with Star, my old horse, but I had him put down, not shot. I did the same as Walter, feeding him, getting a Equine Dentist for him, anything I could think of. My Vet said I gave Star 5 years more than he ever thought I could and he was in great shape due to that, until his decline which took about a month. I had a hard time letting him go. But, I'll see him again when I get home and, we'll go for a ride.


    What about Kevin Young’s performance did you like?

    Kevin's read was as if he were Mark telling it, isn't that the best anyone can do. Kevin was invisible, which is how he should be. That is perfect to me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think I answered that already.


    Any additional comments?

    Mark Rashid.... write faster. I was so excited to see this released, finally I had something to listen to when I'm mowing, fixing fences or driving to town. Now.... I have to find something to listen to. I will listen to anything you want to write, about horses.

    Story
    "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.
