2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Rise VanFleet, PhD on April 19, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an excellent book that explains the world from the horse's point of view, based on science, written simply and straightforwardly. The author tackles the many outdated myths about horses, provides science-based information, and offers a compassionate view of how we should be interacting with and treating these magnificent animals. It is one of the very best books I've seen that helps the reader understand who horses really are.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer K. Kelly on January 17, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book does a nice job of approaching horse behavior and training from a different perspective. It explains why the "pressure and release" method is not always the best way to get results, and takes into consideration the way it adversely affects horses. I like the emphasis on positive reinforcemnet training and why it is effective in gaining results that are long lasting, and emotionally beneficial to both horse and trainer. A very nice, easy to understand and well written book. Highly recommend!

No psychobabble, horse whispering, mysticism or American or Australian hillbilly folklore about horses. So, if you are like most horse people you will want nothing to do with this book because it is based in the science of horses and horsemanship. If you love learning about horses more than your own bias and brain washing, then you can't do better than this book.

Format: Paperback
For the genre, this book is the one I've found so far. There is nothing to add to the reviews before this one.
