    IT WILL SAVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR HORSE

    Pat details the important keys to success with horses in a simple to understand method that can almost be considered fail-safe. Both horses and humans can be transformed by this one book. It takes the magic away from stories like THE BLACK STALLION, THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER, and NATIONAL VELVET. It will make you feel like a kid again and you'll also be able to achieve results you never thought you'd get with a lightness you never thought possible. It is fabulous!!

    Pat Parelli

    i think Pat parelli, is great! It is fun, exciting, educational, wory and fear free and most off all natural and your horse enjoys it to. I have been doing Pat parelli for a while and the results are great. Reasantly i have loaned a horse, and this horse has knwon to be hard to handle and madd. When i rode the horse the first time it was this, but i have been doing alot of Pat Parelli with him and he is coming along so great. People coment and ask how have i done it.Know i can do anything with him, and best off all he trusts me and loves to see me each day, as of before people could not catch him. So thankyou Pat Parelli for teaching me to teach horses.

    Outstanding! A MUST have!!!!!

    I have been riding for 22 years (on and off) and finally bought my own horse...a totally green 3 year old. Pat's book has taught me riding and ground techniques, but most of all, it teaches the psychology of the horse. If you think you know it all...read this book and find how much more you can learn. He is so passionate...this book is NOT for the cynical...it's for HORSE LOVERS who want to bond with their partner and understand their horse.
