The mare didn't turn. Instead, she had the bit in her teeth and was pounding straight for the barn, faster than she'd ever run before. I gave up trying to turn her. I just wanted to stop her. She was heading straight for the open barn door. There was only one problem. The doorway was high enough for a horse. But not for a horse with a rider on its back. If I didn't do something fast, I was about to lose my head.

This book is riddled with inaccuracies. First, anyone with horse sense knows that you never buy a horse on an emotional decision. Second, it is NEVER acceptable to yank on a frightened horse's halter. You will only make the situation worse. Third, a starved horse cannot be given free acess to hay, and should be quarantined. You have no idea what kind of diseases an auction horse could be carrying. Riding a starved, obviously lame horse is an EXTREMELY foolish decision. Not only could you permanently cripple the animal, you might even injure him to the point that he has to be put to sleep. Behavioral problems, such as this mare obviously had, can take months if not years to correct. It would NOT happen overnight. It would have taken much longer for Blue Moon to remember her training, and she only would have after Bobby Jo had earned her trust. My comments are based on nine years of riding experience and three years of training experience. I also own my own horse. Overall, I found this book extremely dissapointing. I recommend that you don't waste your money buying it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
