Format: Paperback
I bought this book not knowing what it was about. I had read Mark Rashid's two other books, and his name on this one was all I needed to make the purchase. I have already been educated and inspired from 'Considering the Horse' and 'Horses Never Lie' more than I have been from all other horse books put together. I knew 'A Good Horse Is Never a Bad Color' would be as good. I was not disappointed.
Unlike the other two, though, this book covers a slightly different subject. While the others mainly discuss training attitude and problem solving, this one focuses on making good horses. It discusses practical issues such as choosing a good horse, imprinting newborns, early training, solving problems that might occur along the way, and even changing a bad horse into a good horse. Of course, Mark never tells you, "if you have a problem with that, do this to solve it." Instead, he writes in story format, recalling his experiences as they happened. This charming style guarantees the book unputdownable. Even if you are not into horses, you could read this book as an autobiography.
In the last chapter, Mark concludes that it was 'the old man' who had passed on this gift to him. He hopes that through this book, he had been able to pass on the gift to the reader. But really, to learn the gift and use it, you must read all his books. They complete each other and deliver his message to the world: a horse will give his all to the person who talks to him in a language he understands... If you have to read only one book in your life about horses, make it one of Mark Rashid's.

Format: Paperback
This book is a classic piece of work!" It is not a step-by-step technical manual; there are plenty of them out there (both good and otherwise). This book is more an "Equine Manual For The Heart." It is written in a low key manner, is full of common sense and is a very enjoyable read. Other equine books provide a technical description of "How" to do something - this book, by way of throughly enjoyable stories, provides the "Emotional and Mental Perspective" to use." I highly recommend it.

This book is another excellent source of training insight, and every bit as good as Mark's other book - "Considering the Horse". The writing style is so unique, and there is so much information and knowledge packed in these pages that it will become an important reference, as well as a very entertaining read for any serious horseman.

If you own your own horse or just ride other peoples or at riding schools, This book will show a compleatly different way of doing things. Instead of trying to make a horse do things (which is difficult when theve got 10 times the strenth we have) we create a situation where THEY WANT to do it and feel comfortable with what they are being asked.
Well worth a read, it may even change the way you handle horses forever, It has done for me and I have a much happier horse because of it, and because my horse is happy so am I. Its a chance to get your horse to do what you never thought he could and all it takes is a little time.

Format: Paperback
I finished this book in two days, I could hardly put it down. Things in the book were easy to understand. Basically, its about an old man teaching a young boy the ins and outs of horses! I cried at the end of the book, and wished the old mans teachings would never end.

Mark shares his experiences with horses in a short story format. He explains different situations that he has encountered and how he approached them - not always succesfully, but what he learned and how he could handle them better in the future. He shares what he learned from "the old man" and how he has used the knowledge in his dealings with horses. Mark does clinics around the country where he shares more of his stories and his knowledge about working together with your horse to create a better partnership. Check out his website for clinic dates and comments from participants - look it up! Rumor has it he's working on a third book!

Great book, and surely the most fun I've had reading about training. Mark Rashid illustrates horsemanship and training methods through a series of stories about different horses and the people who help and hinder their ability to become "good horses", regardless of their appearance. Also don't miss Rashid's other book, "Considering the Horse."

After reading "Considering The Horse", I thought it couldn't get much better, but it did. He has an insight that he shares with his readers and has managed to get it across to us without the usual 'how to book' boredom. Even if you never train a horse but just admire the animal, this is a great book to read. He and the old man in this book have shared a fortune of knowledge with us. Thanks again Mark.
