Editorial Reviews

Review

"A great insight into the horse's instincts, awareness, and reaction to surroundings and its ability to adjust to environment and man . . . as well as the language of each, as it relates to the other. The book stresses the individuality of each horse and its needs. . . . A true, easily followed, in-depth understanding of the horse in pictures and text."---Don Burt, author of Horses & Other Heroes and Winning with the American Quarter Horse

From the Back Cover

Trudy Nicholson takes us on a journey into the world of the horse. Her photographic images capture the essence, body language, and social interaction of this often misunderstood species, while the text explores the interaction between horse and human.
Looking at the world from the horse's perspective and understanding its natural instincts and language provides a way of working with the horse that is both harmonious and productive. Whatever end result you wish to achieve with your horse-whether it be showjumping, dressage, western riding, or simply pleasure and companionship-this psychological approach will ensure a rewarding and lifelong relationship with your horse.

Format: Paperback
This book is a 'must read' for anyone who is coming back into horses, has never had them or "knows all there is to know"!! It is an easy to read and follow text with excellent photos which captivate the reader from start to finish. I have had horses for years and learned new things and was reminded of things I should have remembered. In other words it helped me to look at things in a new light and and gave me another perspective on reading our much loved companions body language, to understand and not chastise for their way of doing things. This book will appeal to all diciplines, not any one in particular. Highly recommended.

This book is definately a must-read for all those who have ever or will ever have contact with the equine species. The horse - human relationship is beautifully portrayed by way of photos and text that reflect the Author's lifelong relationship with horses. This is far more than a coffee table read - it is packed with information that is easy to digest and makes the reader rethink their "way with horses".

This book is about empathy and understanding between horses and humans. Things that many of us know but many more need to know - that horses have feelings and emotions which will predict their wellbeing and active healthy life. Read, discover and be enlightened. A must for everyone interested in horses.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Simone on October 26, 2005
Format: Paperback
A Way With Horses expresses everything your horse wishes he could say to you about how he feels, thinks & acts & why he does the things he does. This book is particularly attractive to those who would like to learn more about the natural ways of horses but find American colloquialism difficult to comprehend & identify with. It's a celebration of a global shift in attitude towards horses.

The photography is spectacular! They say a picture tells 1,000 words & this is true in this case.

More About the Author

I'd like to thank you for taking an interest in my books and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.

I grew up with horses, attending pony club and competing. My love affair with horses has continued into my adult life and I have to admit I'm still addicted to them after all these years! And, I love being in their company and photographing them.

I think it's fabulous how our love of horses can unite us - no matter what part of the world we live in, which reminds me...
Depending on where you live, you may find that I speak a little differently than you; this is because I'm a New Zealander, or a Kiwi as we are often known.
So you might find that some of the terms and names might be unfamiliar, but don't worry as I've created a special 'horse translator' at the back of the 'second edition' books (by Horsecrest Press). It might be fun to compare words and learn what people in other countries call things. For example, here in New Zealand we call a ranch a station, hence White Cloud Station!

I hope that you join the thousands of other horse loving young people from around the globe who read and collect the White Cloud Station series of books.
