Mark Rashid is an internationally acclaimed horse trainer known for his ability to understand the horse s point of view and solve difficult problems with communication rather than force.He has ranched for many years gathering herds, managing stocks and training horses whilst his clinics centre on one-on-one work with horse and rider and are immensely popular worldwide.
Rather than being a 'how-to' guide to working with damaged horses
this is a unique book filled with anecdotes of horses Rashid has
worked with and helped, one that the astute horseman can delve into
over and over again and learn so much about horses and how to
improve our relationship with them. This book should be compulsory
reading for anyone who works with, or rides horses.
I have great respect for Mark Rashid as a trainer, and this book makes an interesting read for any horse owner. It's a series of case studies, which covers common training problems such as refusal to be caught, and covers psychology as well as training methods. -- Gemma Alstein * Horse and Countryside *
...one of the first books I've seen specifically for anyone restarting a horse which has previously been started - but not so well. -- Wendy Parsons * The Essex Rider *
