Camp, creator of the famous canine icon Benji, knows the world of dogs, but here he tells the story of his journey into the realm of horse ownership. In his quest for knowledge on the subject, Camp began to question the logic behind traditional horse-management practices such as stabling, blanketing, and shoeing as well as how these practices affect horse behaviors, health, and well-being. He eventually became both a follower and a promoter of natural horsemanship methods. Though he primarily focuses on the Monty Roberts "Join Up" method for training, he also includes references and an appendix to other well-known natural-method horse trainers. Hundreds of other books about horses, training, and equine management have been published, but Camp's easy-to-read prose, humor, and enlightening tales bring readers to question what truly is best for the horse. Suitable for all public and large academic libraries.
