Here is the last of my reviews for books by Mark Rashid. Until, I read some more that is! I really enjoyed reading the stories in this book and got a few lessons out of it myself. A good horse is a good horse no matter what breed, color, size or sex it happens to be./It’s just like when your in school. If your teacher asks a question that you don’t know the answer to, would you want her to help you figure out the right answer or would you rather have her hit you with a stick until you guessed the right answer?/What separates a good owner from a bad one is a good owner understands his responsibility to the horse. Without that understanding it seems, the horse often becomes nothing more than another tool in the shed, a tool that is easily discarded because it never worked properly, when all it may have taken for it to be useful to begin with was the owner to read the directions.
I know a lot of people that think this “natural horsemanship ship stuff” is crap (excuse my language). Having studied horse behavior for several years I can only say this, the lessons learned from my horses have had a huge impact on my life. I have patience, compassion and the ability to look beyond the obvious. It is because of this knowledge I have been able to do some amazing things with my horses. They are not material things. They give me purpose; they empower me. I am so glad I have them in my life. He who takes time to learn the lesson shall enjoy the journey.”Jowana Lamb”.
