5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, 19 Dec 2011

This review is from: Warrior: The Amazing Story of a Real War Horse (Hardcover)
Warrior is a lovely book although tinged with a lot of sadness. It talks about how horses suffered during the 14-18 war, (it is estimated that over 8 million horses, donkeys and mules died in this war)but also how their riders looked after them as best they could.I guess the Spielberg film will be more dramatic but this is a real story about a real horse.
I think this is an informative read for anyone whether they are involved with horses or not. People can decide whether to fight each other or not but horses do not have a say in the matter.
It is also interesting to note that this book was originally written in 1934 and there are comments in there which relate very accurately to the communucation between horse and owner, so once again it is clear natural horsemen have been around for a long long time.
A very enlightened quote from the book "The soul of a horse is a great and loyal soul, above all courageous and affectionate. But let there be one cruel blow from a human and you have ruined the horse's fine soul and spirit for ever." The dream of the writer, General Jack Seely, is that anyone who reads the book may vow never to beat a willing horse.

As the owner of a most willing horse that has clearly been beaten in the past, that quote rang so true. Thank you for posting it
