This is a superb book. It is an easy to follow guide to becoming close friends with your horse. It delivers on its promise, and more.
Our daughter uses the techniques, and she and her horse work magic together. It is clear that the horse loves the play of learning new tricks by using methods described here.
The tricks are fun but they are only the surface expression of the deep affection between human and horse that this book teaches so well. Even a herd animal like a horse, can learn a deep love and attachment for its trainer and Mrs. Fargher methodically teaches you how to achieve this bonding. She also shows how to develop a horse's innate intelligence to a far higher degree than one would have thought possible.
This is primarily a 'how-to' book but it has many full colour photographs and some incredibly good colour cartoon drawings, also by the author, so it is likely to become a cherished collectors book for horse lovers. Thank you to the author for so much pleasure given.
