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.

What everyone should know about a horse

Informative, full of heart and a full, spriritual feeling covers you. The narrator's voice is icing on the cake.

Inspiration

it was interesting. I wish it explained in more detail, how to read horses. I did learn from it. I live in an area where the old cowboy way is still prominent. I much prefer this style and need guidance. I did not grow up around horses and have only had one for 2 yrs now. I love it . The people around me however, sound like Monty's father. I'm glad he shared his story. it gives me hope and I will continue to look for someone like Monty to train myself, so I may learn to talk too and establish a partnership with my horse.

couldn't stop listening to this book.

I hope to apply Monty's method of join up one day when I get a horse.

If you can get thru the introduction ....

The narrator and tone for the introduction (and last chapter) almost had me returning the book immediately. Hated it. Once you get into the book it gets much better, however I have come to learn at least 50% of it is BS. Still a pretty good story though!
