    AWSOME

    I think that John Lyons and Ga Wa Ni Pony Boy go hand in hand when it comes to horse training. You dont need to use force and abuse when you use John Lyons techniqes. I love it and I hope that one day we can stop the old way of breaking a horse and use love and common sence.

    One of the Best!

    This book is so detailed & accurate, that a beginner could go buy a wild horse & train it just using his/her notes from Lyons On Horses. VERY effective! If I could rate it 6 stars, I would.
