An outstanding coffee-table book,
This review is from: A Life with Horses: Spirit of the Work (Paperback)
I have enjoyed most of Mark Rashid's books on horsemanship and absolutely loved Kathleen Lindley's "In The Company Of Horses" so this book, which consists of big full-page photos along with explanations from Mark and/or Kathleen as to what was going on when it was taken or why it is significant to them should have appealed to me absolutely.
Sure enough, it did- the photos are really well-caught moments and the explanations give them further interest and significance. It doesn't have the depth and content of their regular books, but then it's not supposed to. It's easily pick-up and put-downable and although it is deliberately lightweight in content it still carries enough of those flashes of insight to really help get you thinking about how you do things with your own horses.
This is, in essence, fan service- it's not really a place to get started with the work of either of it's authors, but as a fan -both of good horsemanship and good photography - I consider myself well served by it.
