In Horses Never Lie, renowned horse trainer Mark Rashid challenges the conventional wisdom of “alpha leadership” and teaches the reader to become a “passive leader”—a counterpart to the kind of horse other members of a herd choose to associate with and to follow. Applying Rashid’s principles and techniques helps cultivate horse personalities that are responsive and dependable regardless of the rider. Reliving Rashid’s experiences with him, you will come to feel the same sort of compassion and appreciation for your horses that you do for the people in your life. This new edition features added introductory notes for each chapter that contribute to a more complete understanding of Rashid’s methods and philosophy.

NAKED LIBERTY is a captivating memoir of Carolyn Resnick's detailed account of how she gained a magnetic connection with horses. Carolyn reveals her struggle to be accepted into a herd of wild horses, beginning at the bottom of the pecking order, working to gain higher rank and ultimately riding on the back of a lead mare from a bonded trust. This book goes beyond "horse whispering" and will inspire readers to seek a higher level of communication with their horses. "I learned that dominant horses must fight for their position and lead horses do not. From these waterhole rituals I discovered the secret society of wild horses, and that the spirit of the bond has its own language," says Carolyn.

Many horse trainers, even those who espouse the so-called natural horsemanship approach, take the position that horses who 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." Whole Heart, Whole Horse focuses on this idea, covering such subjects as gathering information from the horse, turning rider/trainer mistakes into positive experiences, developing realistic boundaries between you and your horse, understanding how and why horses release energy from real or perceived traumas, and reaching a comfortable balance point between horse and rider. Rashid analyzes developing softness, consistency, dependability, trust, and peace of mind in both horses and humans, as well as how to become a leader whom your horse will willingly want to follow and work with. 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.

Written by one of the original Horse Whisperers Horses Don't Lie is the definitive guide to training horses and every horse trainer will welcome this method. After years of using his method to train horses Chris came to see that it could also be applied to human behaviour. As Chris points out: “A horse knows what you know.” The characteristics necessary for building good relationships with horses can be used to deepen our relationships with other people and to enrich our daily lives. Horses can teach us how to communicate with empathy and patience, not only with them but with each other. Humans, like dogs, are natural predators while horses are prey that evolved to band together in packs for protection. This results in two differing types of consciousness and for a human to think like prey teaches many things. It teaches the trust and honesty essential in building relationships, and not only in a relationship with a horse; while the sensitivity and awareness that characterises a horse's perception of the world are qualities we could all use in our own lives. “Always think like a horse and not like a dog.” The real magic of horse whispering is what horses reveal to us about ourselves when we strive to understand their behaviour. Horses Don't Lie will teach you about the connections we can make in our lives when we learn from horses.
