The people who read these stories must at one point think to themselves that the people who *should* be reading these stories are the ones that won't. Some of the training methods that some trainers use on horses are horrific.
I can only hope that by reading the stories of very bad training methods that I will catch myself if I ever lose patience, or consider using any type of bad "training" method that Mark Rashid witnessed and tells of in some of his stories.
There's a saying that every choice creates a future, so having learned a few things from the stories in this book, I hope that I will make better choices when with my horses.
The extra attention in this book telling more about "the old man" Walter Pruitt (sp?) was a bonus.
I wish the book would not end. The stories were so good and learned so much on how a horse look's at situation's.Enjoyed each story.How blessed Mark Rashid ,is too experience some one like the old man with so much wisdom with horse's.Thank you for sharimg he's knowledge and wisdom and life's lesson's with horse's
This book is actually quite entertaining, but it's also ends up throwing in some stories that teach you why one horse or another was acting weird, gives you more ideas for when you have to deal with unusual behavior from your own horses.
I'd recommend this book for any horse lover, although if you think you have to beat some horses to submission, and are dead-set in this ideal, you may not like this book.
