Whole Heart, Whole Horse by Mark Rashid
In Whole Heart, Whole Horse, internationally acclaimed horse trainer, clinician, and author Mark Rashid offers a compelling, heart-warming, and instructive account of how to establish a fulfilling connection with your horse.
Many horse trainers, even those who espouse the so-called natural horsemanship approach, take the position horses that fail to obey a human's request are doing so as much out of perversity as ignorance. That's not Mark Rashid's view. In his words, "If we understand that horses can’t separate the way they feel from the way they act, then we can start to see that unwanted behavior isn’t bad behavior at all. More times than not, it's just the horse expressing the way he feels at that particular moment in time. How we perceive that information dictates how we respond to it."
Among several key points, he explores:
Full of examples that extend beyond the training pen, Whole Heart, Whole Horse offers good sense and information that will make you a more astute, capable, and sensitive horseman—and person.
Mark Rashid is internationally recognized for his ability to understand the horse's point of view and solve difficult problems with communication rather than force. A student of the martial art of aikido, he incorporates its philosophy of harmony as a way to improve horses and riders. The author of seven books, Rashid was featured on the PBS Nature series. He lives in Estes Park, Colorado.
