Publisher's Summary

Monty Roberts has traveled the world working with difficult horses. He has trained Queen Elizabeth's yearlings, jittery stallions on movie sets, and million-dollar race horses. In each case, he controls the animal without using force or inflicting pain. 

Monty's father, a traditional horse trainer, had taught his son to dominate a horse in order to "break" it. But when he was 13, Monty made a discovery that changed his life. As he watched a mare tame a rebellious colt, Monty saw that she was speaking to it through eye and body movements. Astonished, Monty realized that he could train horses by using their language, speaking to them in ways that would form trust and understanding. 

Developing techniques based on what he learned from the horses around him, Monty embarked on a remarkable career - one that would bring him international fame as the real Horse Whisperer. Now, in his own words, he shares the story of his memorable life. 

An immediate best seller, The Man Who Listens to Horses is filled with courage, compassion, and Roberts' vast affection for his best friend, the horse.

Great read/listen for any horse lover

I thought this book might be more of a didactic read but found the story surprisingly engaging. Monty Roberts is a legend but I knew little of his teachings and less about his life. Highly recommended for anyone interested in horses and animal behavior.
