In Getting Along with Horses: An Evolution in Understanding, you will be challenged to reframe
commonly held beliefs about the most effective ways to interact with your horse. A peaceful relationship is something many of us strive for. Yet, some of the lessons we're taught make it difficult to establish the connection we seek, and are based on techniques that are anything but peaceful.
Seeing horses for who and what they are is key to cooperative and positive interactions. Instead of relying on antiquated practices or outdated information, you will discover ways to educate yourself and shift your understanding to the horse's point of view.
Horses are hardwired to get along. In this book, you will find ideas that will help you to also get along with them.

About the Author
Crissi McDonald, who now calls Colorado home, spent her Arizona childhood looking for horses to ride. As a teenager and young adult, she traded barn work for riding lessons and spent summers on cattle ranches and running horse programs at a Girl Scouts of America camp; along the way, she earned a BA in philosophy from Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff. Now a trainer and a certified Masterson Method equine bodyworker, she travels with her husband, Mark Rashid, offering clinics nationally and internationally.
Along with horses, Crissi has had a lifelong interest in writing and photography; her articles have been published in The Bark, and her photographs have been used in several of Mark Rashid’s books. Through her blog, she connects with those looking for ways to build deep and trusting relationships with their horses. "Continuing The Ride," is her first book.
