I read the first review on Amazon and I am so shocked! I can't believe how ignorant this woman must be to have written such rubbish! I have found the book (along with the dvds) incredibly helpful and loads of fun for all my horses (I have 5 of my own horses and I have 19 students so there is a variety of horses we work with!) It is interesting to see how you progress to the really difficult games and how it all ties in with trust, respect and herd behaviour. It makes complete sense to me and I found it really easy to follow and understand, that I why I am so surprised!
I can't believe how blind and close-minded people can be!
This was a very interesting and fun book with a sound foundation in
herd behaviour. The games are varied and range from very easy to quite
challenging but if you work from the perspective of trust and respect then
anything is possible! I have 5 horses of my own and work with many others, they
all have totally different personalities but they all enjoy the games so much!
It was very nice to see the stepping stones of how to get from doing the average work to the exceptional work, and if you watch the dvds that compliment this book then you can see with your own eyes how successful the games are if you know how to apply them to your own horse's temperament! What I also liked was that everything is based on the horse's comfort and health (mentally and physically) and safety is always emphasized. It is about improving your horse's happiness and enjoyment and improving strength and flexibilty in a fun way as well as building a strong relationship! It is creative and light-hearted with useful information and tips to help you and your horse learn together."
I can only recommend this book and it also provides tons of fun if you happen to engage children in these games.
If you love your horses you can only have fun if they are happy. In Jutta's book she shows you how to make your horses happy and how to become a good and reliable leader by establishing a good relationship. Don't skip the first part of getting your body language right and the first yielding and leading games as this is where you're mainly working on yourself and your relationship to your horse. Jutta has also got some DVDs out very worth watching. They are called "Playing with Horses" to be purchased at Equestrian Vision.
Be your horse a REAL friend and buy this book so that you have a great time together!
