My copy of Connecting with Horses arrived 2 days ago and I have not been able to put it down, so hooked on it that I have been reading until the early hours.

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.

Truly awesome!

This a wonderful, magical and heartwarming book, full of useful and factual information backed up with scientific evidence on how horses can connect to us and help us heal. The true stories of how people and Horses have helped each other made me cry they were so moving.

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.

This book offers a unique blend of science, warmth, compassion, personal experiences, and spirituality. Margrit Coates provides insight into the psychologist Jung's collective unconsciousness and belief that horses are healers of humans. Through this book she offers a sound base for practitioners of equine assisted psychotherapy and equine facilitated learning to begin to explore and develop their practice. I could not put it down, and as I read it, I experienced a range of emotion from tears to joy. I finished this book believing that Margrit has pushed us a step closer to truly understanding what is meant by connection.

This book should be read by everyone who takes on the responsibility of owning a horse, and anyone else who has a passion for them. I have read all of Margrit's books, and though I've kept horses for over 25 years,i have had my eyes opened to a whole new way of looking at them. I always appreciated their intelligence, but this book illustrates the depth of their wisdom and feeling in an incredible way. It is deeply moving without being sentimental. If only every horse owner worldwide read this book, there would be an end to an awful lot of unnecessary suffering, and a lot of enlightened people!

After reading Margrit's two books prior to this one, my hopes were high! Whilst reading simply the first page I shed a tear! This, along with Margrit's two other books- "Healing For Horses" and "Horses Talking" are my Bibles! Another beautifully written and easily understandable book that after reading even 100 times I would not tire of.

If you thought you knew all about horses you might think again once you have read this. Once again Margrit has given us a wonderful, thought provoking book which explores the abilities and spiritual side of horses in more depth than ever before.

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.

Having read several of Margrit's groundbreaking books, I was very keen to read this one. Her words offer not only insight into the inner world of animals but actively encourage those who care for them to enter into a deeper understanding of them with clear methods of how to achieve 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.
