Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The rich tradition of California hackamore training comes alive in this coffee-table hardcover. Veteran horse trainer Bobby Ingersoll and photography David Stoecklein combine talents to offer vivid portraits of both these majestic horses and the talented men and women "horse whisperers" who train them. A memorable pictorial that brings your heart to a gallop.
From the Publisher
"Following the Spanish tradition, Bobby's philosophy deals with the heart and the mind of the horse. He believes that only through feel, can one truly communicate to a horse and that's what makes someone a good horseman or what many call a 'Horse Whisperer.'"
-- National Reined Cow Horse Association

Meet the Author

Bobby Ingersoll started showing horses at an early age and has been showing and winning for many years. Some of his career highlights are winning the Snaffle Bit Futurity three times, winning the Triple Crown in 1975 (winning all three divisions) and winning the LA and the North Western Cutting Futurities. But Bobby feels that winning isn't everything. He would rather be noted as a good horseman that understands horses and people. David R. Stoecklein has worked closely with ranchers and cowboys from every Western state. Through his work, he has gained a deep understanding of and respect for cowboys. His quest to keep the spirit of the West alive is heartfelt and uncompromising. David spends every free moment photographing cowboys and all elements of their lives, preserving their heritage and traditions. David resides in Sun Valley with his wife, Mary, and their three sons.
