Audible Editor Reviews

Distinguished horse trainer Mark Rashid shares his philosophy that horse training should be rooted in compassion and communication. He empowers listeners with techniques to train horses that may have been previously mistreated or misunderstood, embedding the information in amusing stories. The message is clear: Force is never necessary in horse training. A change in perspective and approach may be all that’s needed to transform a problem animal’s attitude. Mike Chamberlain’s genial delivery captures the feel-good spirit of Rashid’s teachings, making it easy to digest the valuable information.

Publisher's Summary

Learn why your problem horse is not a lost cause with helpful tips from an internationally acclaimed trainer.

In A Good Horse Is Never a Bad Color, Mark Rashid continues to share his talent for training horses through communication rather than force. Rashid uses humorous, feel-good stories to relate his techniques of teaching horses by examining their view of the world. This book is a must-have for compassionate horse trainers and owners. Tales of Arabs, appaloosas, and paints - mistrusted and mistreated because of their breed - will give listeners a new perspective on these breeds and others. This new edition features added introductory notes for each chapter that contribute to a better understanding of Rashid’s philosophy and methods.

    "Very Moving"

    This book has entirely changed how I perceive Arabs and Appys. It's always about training! I laughed out loud, I related and I cried. It's such a good book. just like all of his other books.

    "Fantastic Book!"

    As far as horse books go this is now one if my favourites. Not your typical "how-to", the story captures your heart and pulls you in. The teachings contained within the story will stick with me forever. A huge thank you to Mark Rashid for sharing with us.

    "A true resource."

    This title and all of Mark's work has changed my entire thought process when dealing with my horse. I always felt the current training methods lacked and never felt right. Mark has answered my call.

    "What a wonder read. I so enjoyed these stories!"

    I loved this book. I believe I have come away with a better understanding of my horse and horses in general. Part if me is sad knowing I two have given up in a horse that if I just taken some time I think I could have figured her out. I highly recommend this book to any and all horse owners.

    "Another fantastic book from Mark Rashid"
    If you could sum up A Good Horse Is Never a Bad Color in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, wise, warm


    What other book might you compare A Good Horse Is Never a Bad Color to, and why?

    Horses Never Lie


    What about Mike Chamberlain’s performance did you like?

    The narrator's performance was OK, and I definitely prefer him to some of the other narrators of Mark Rashids books, but he was a tiny bit stilted. It didn't detract from enjoying the book, or the quality of the content, however a more skilled narrator could have made this one of those magical audiobooks that you feel empty when they're over.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes absolutely! I do with all Mark Rashid's books. I always finish them within a day or two, and then immediately want to run out and spend time with horses!


    Any additional comments?

    With this book in particular, you hear a lot of stories about the Old Man who started off MR's own journey with horses. The author mentions the Old Man a few times, but always briefly, in his previous books, but you know that if he ever went into detail about the Old Man it could potentially be something really special, and this book lives up to all that promise and more. A really special and personal book from MR, it can't fail to touch you as well as teach you. I'll be listening to it again and again.
