The horse we have in our stable is the horse we make, The Marquis Mac Swiney of Mashanaglass reminds us.Whether this horse is a youngster that is the proverbial "clean slate," or an older horse in need of re-schooling back to basics as a result of mishandling, this book shows the reader how to approach horses in a way that makes real sense to them. In the first part of the book the author discusses equine ethology and psychology to help the reader understand better the nature of horses in general, before focusing on the practicalities of educating a horse.The second part of the book presents a logical sequence of training in which the pupil is carefully taught the necessary stable manners, introduced to the halter and bridle, to longeing and to the basics of work on the long reins to learn the aids. The author shows that all this can be accomplished with patience, gentleness and understanding and the result is a confident horse that is happy in his work and thoroughly prepared for backing.Easy to read and understand, this classic book deserves a place of honor on every horseman's bookshelf.

From the author of the #1 bestseller The Man Who Listens to Horses, a book for all of us seeking to strengthen our human relationships "Monty Roberts will make you marvel."—The New York Times Book Review In The Man Who Listens to Horses, Monty Roberts revealed the depth of communication possible between human and horse. Touching the hearts of more than four million readers worldwide, that memoir—which spent more than a year at the top of The New York Times bestseller list—described his discovery of the "language" of horses and the dramatic effectiveness of removing violence from their training. Now, the world's most famous horse gentler demonstrates how his revolutionary Join-Up technique can be used not just for horses, but as a model for how to strengthen human relationships. With vivid, often deeply moving anecdotes, Roberts shows how the lessons learned from the thousands of horses he has known can provide effective guidelines for improving the quality of our communication with one another—from learning to "read" each other effectively, to creative fear-free environments, and, most importantly, teaching belief in the power of gentleness and trust.
