Overview

In Horses Never Lie, renowned horse trainer Mark Rashid challenges the conventional wisdom of “alpha leadership” and teaches the reader to become a “passive leader”—a counterpart to the kind of horse other members of a herd choose to associate with and to follow. Applying Rashid’s principles and techniques helps cultivate horse personalities that are responsive and dependable regardless of the rider. Reliving Rashid’s experiences with him, you will come to feel the same sort of compassion and appreciation for your horses that you do for the people in your life. This new edition features added introductory notes for each chapter that contribute to a more complete understanding of Rashid’s methods and philosophy.

Mark Rashid has a talent for writing that few ever achieve. He brings his words to life and is incredibly generous in sharing a lifetime of experiences with his reading public. It's a joy to read each and every one of his books. If you ever have a chance to attend one of his horse training clinics, GO!!

Mark Rashid is a true horseman with no fancy gimmics or tools. He tells his theories in an entertaining and interesting way which makes this book a great learning tool and read. His writing applies to all riders of any dicipline and I highly recommend Rashid's titles to any one who likes horses.

While laughing at his experiences you will also learn how to think outside of the box when dealing with horses. Once you start one of his books you can't put it down!

The art work on the cover drew me to the book. I'm glad it did. Outstanding reading. For anybody who works with horses or people.
