Beschreibung von Audible
AudioFile Earphones Award-winning narrator Mike Chamberlain's low-key and down-to-earth performance beautifully complements the friendly, helpful tone of this guide on how to build trusting relationships between riders and horses. This audiobook focuses on the idea that horses use their behavior to express their thoughts, and it explains how a rider can learn to read what horses are saying. Important topics such as turning rider/trainer mistakes into positive experiences and developing realistic boundaries are also covered. Listeners will feel as though they are being personally instructed by a dependable and patient trainer.
Many horse trainers, even those who espouse the so-called natural horsemanship approach, take the position that horses who fail to obey a human's request are doing so as much out of perversity as ignorance. That's not Mark Rashid's view. In his words, "If we understand that horses can't separate the way they feel from the way they act, then we can start to see that unwanted behavior isn't bad behavior at all. More times than not, it's just the horse expressing the way he feels at that particular moment in time....
How we perceive that information dictates how we respond to it.
Whole Heart, Whole Horse focuses on this idea, covering such subjects as gathering information from the horse, turning rider/trainer mistakes into positive experiences, developing realistic boundaries between you and your horse, understanding how and why horses release energy from real or perceived traumas, and reaching a comfortable balance point between horse and rider. Rashid analyzes developing softness, consistency, dependability, trust, and peace of mind in both horses and humans, as well as how to become a leader whom your horse will willingly want to follow and work with. Full of examples that extend beyond the training pen, Whole Heart, Whole Horse offers good sense and information that will make you a more astute, capable, and sensitive horseman and person.
