Most people have one specific method of handling the horse and will not waiver even if it's not working. Mark encourages the owner to rethink the method and try another approach. Repeatedly if necessary. It's not failure if the first method doesn't work. That's a refreshing viewpoint.
The only downside is that I'm rapidly running out of his books as each one becomes quickly consumed during the evening hours. And personally, I'm still trying to figure out why there are no photos in his books, but great illustrations and drawings, and you can never find a picture of Mark.
Mark Rashid's books have changed my life, not only how I interact with my horses, but how I treat myself. Horses teach us everything if we can learn to listen. Mark makes that easier.
