The empathy and horse understanding of Margrit Coates shines from every sentence. For any one who wants to know what connecting with horses means, this book is a revelation. I have one horse that I share hacks with, with no experience of the psychology side to horse ownership, but this book has opened my heart and mind to many things I had not previously considered. As I turned each page I learnt something new, and shed a tear or two along the way.
This book is essential reading for all horse lovers, no matter what their experience or background, whether equine proffessional or weekend hobby rider like me.
It is wonderful that someone at last has recognised not only the nobleness and the beauty of horses but the fact that they are so intelligent, and despite what we sometimes do to them in the name of training and Love, they still want to be with us, and help us if we allow them to. Real horse sense!
This is a must for all equine lovers.
Having been lucky enough to have had Margrit work with my own horse I know that what she does is both magical and humbling.
Be prepared to read this several times because it has such a wealth of information which will both shock and amaze in equal parts. You will never look at horses the same way once you have read this.
In this book, with great passion and commitment to her intention to bring people and their animals closer together with a greater connection than many might think possible, Margrit relates her own experiences of working with a great variety of horses of different personality types whose experiences have sometimes led to traits that their owners have found to be puzzling and challenging. However, when seen through the eyes of the animal himself and from his point of view - an incredible ability Margrit exercises with sensitivity, gentleness and dignity - much is explained. A great deal of "bad behaviour" can now be clearly interpreted as a cry of pain or a plea for help. On virtually every page, Margrit's words as she speaks for the horses, can move you to tears as you contemplate how misunderstood the horse has been - often by well intentioned people who have simply never taken the time to observe natural habits and listen to the silent communication the horse offers concerning his needs and worries, pains and concerns.
In this book, the horse is seen as an individual in his own right, with not only feelings and fears but opinions and even humour, and his life co-existing with man as all too often only having been a fraction of what it has the potential to be when human and horse work as partners who have a capacity to comprehend each other at a far more profound level than most would dream possible.Read more ›
