Publisher's Summary

The popular and highly respected horse trainer Mark Rashid brings together Western and Eastern philosophies to demonstrate a seamless new incarnation of horse training. After years of helping "difficult" horses, Mark Rashid understands how to build the foundation of a horse's training and resolve any problems encountered along the way. He explains how he allows the traditionally firm or assertive approach of the old Western style to take some lessons from the softer conflict resolution and ego reduction approach that the Japanese martial art of aikido teaches. Rashid's ultimate goal is harmony between horse and rider.

    "Nature in Horsemanship"

    Loved it so much that I'm disappointed that it was done. such a great perspective and such a blessing that Mark Rashid shared his treasured experience once again. At least should be read by every person who owns or loves a horse.

    "Different then other a Mark Rashid books"

    Very different from the first three Mark Rashid books I read. This was interesting, but I was more anxious to get through it so I could move on to the next book than really wanting to finish it. Very true to description, lots and lots about the Akita(?). No mention of the old man or the lessons he learned from him.

    Story
    "STRONGLY dislike narrator's voice"

    Mike Chamberlain or Kevin Young please. This narrator didn't make the story at all exciting. in fact. it was excruciating to listen to. His voice is impossible to get used to. It's more for a movie trailer for a sinister movie or something dark. I wish Mike Chamberlain or Kevin Young would read it! It ruined the story for me.

    "Excellent work. Just what I needed!"

    Learned so much about horses and about martial art concepts that I was not aware of. I felt joy, sadness, love, suffering, confusion and triumph .... empathically, right along with Mark Rashid and his equine friends and teachers... it was an enlightening journey, indeed!
    The only thing that disappointed me in the story, is that he allowed himself to be thrown mercilessly onto the floor repeatedly for hours by an ignorant, unfeeling and inconsiderate partner in class. Yes, imho, he definitely deserved his Nidan promotion for enduring that!
    Yet..... Just as with horses, it is still my feeling that NO person deserves to be abused in the name of "education".
    Thank you for the Lesson, Sir.
