    Avis de l'équipe

    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.

    Description

    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.

    Truly this book has something...

    If you ever felt this 6th sense you can have with a horse and are looking to find and keep thus feeling again, you will live this book. Trough a story about an old man and his horses, the author gives us lessons on horsemanship. He illustrates his lessons clearly trough his stories and he makes us see how logical and easy things can be if you understand the cause of the problem.
    Truly, this book is something.

    Excellent read.

    I've spent a good deal of time getting ideas from old horsemen, seeing how they match up with my philosophy. None have come nearly so close as Mark Rashid. I started riding when I was barely walking, but I never had a mentor like Mark's "old man" he refers to in his books.
    Mark's brand of horsemanship, while similar to guys like Buck Branaman and Warwick Schiller, is unique in that he relies on feel, heart and relationship more than drill and technique. His ubiquitous story telling and relating those human interactions to interactions with your horse are spot on. I've read a few of his books now and this one does not disappoint.

    Balance is everything

    Where does Whole Heart, Whole Horse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book really helped my heart and my head find a path towards a close partnership with my current horse and both of us greatly appreciate it.

    As Always;Very Good Book

    All of the books I've listened to by Mark Rashid have given me an "ah ha" moment. This book is full of situations that motivate me to get out there every day and be patient with my horse. In particular, this book has given me great insight about the critical importance of direction. so I will be planning what to do with my horse before I go out there. Not to mention develop that softness and giving my horse my whole heart.

    Life changing books!

    I am new to horses. This year I took a good fall and broken my back in a couple of places. Dur no that recovery I felt I needed to learn more about horsemanship. I feel it serendipitous that I discovered Mark.ive now read all of his books and will likely just start them over. I've seen a great change in myself and my horse in under three months, without me even being able to ride. I consider him and his thought process before every action. I do not have enough kind words for all of marks books!

    Enjoyable listening, good teaching stories

    Trainers are Observers, who've observed enough to know where they can make a little change here, a little change there, and make an animal or human's life better.

    In this book Mark Rashid teaches through very good story telling. I learned new ways to look at my horses, hopefully to better understand them.

    This audiobook was reluctantly turned off when I had to, and I couldn't wait to get back to it. I finished it in one day. When it was done (all too quickly) I had a good feeling, like when you've had a great conversation with a friend.

    It is inspiring too. Mark Rashid tells his horse and human stories with a non-judgmental observer's eye, with an undertone of compassion at times, and sometimes humor. A few trainers have an undertone of disgust with people after years of trying to fix the damage done to horses by clueless humans. I didn't pick up a smidgen of this judgmental tone from Mark Rashid's book.

    The narration was done by Mike Chamberlain with a friendly voice and great timing.

    I highly recommend this book. Even for people who don't have horses, but who just enjoy a good book. But, for horse people, this one's a positive learning experience. And fun . . . and it will touch your heart . . . you'll see.

    Always something to learn from Rashid

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Rashid's approach is so authentic and genuine. I appreciate his humble manner and the way he stops to question the root of an issue rather than simply applying a familiar solution. He really stands out as a fresh thinking clinician with respectful regard for each horse an an individual. He is consistent in his approach yet open to change when necessary.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Whole Heart, Whole Horse?

    The story of "the Black" which underscored the title and core message of the book.

    After growing tired...

    of the brutality of Anderson, the commercialization and fakeries of Parelli and Roberts, and the ever inflating ego of Hempfling (who used to be the absolute best horse trainer anywhere, and maybe still is, despite his growing pompousness in age), Mark Rashid comes like a breath of fresh air. A true natural-horseman who manages to transcend the snake-oil instant cure mentality seen in so many clinics and workshops, Rashid gives an holistic approach that can be--and must be--shaped to each individual horse by each individual human. Rashid understands the most important truth: horse time is timeless, and anything with a horse takes as long as it takes--with gentle but firm leadership, care and compassion, and a deep understanding of the horse. A book well worth your time!
