This is one of those can t put it down books It s an autobiography, an equine skills book and the same techniques being used on e.g deer incredible in all categories.I ve seen a horse whisperer working in a veterinay department of a university a few years back and it was incredible It changed my perceptions of horses from that of a 8 9 year old thrown off a horse into brambles and scared in the decades ever since From seeing the horse whisperer it s a whole new world opening up and a different view of horses, my fear has gone with just a little understanding of them Monty Roberts was the pioneer so this book really was the animal s new testament, the little red book, whatever The skills are transferable, as Monty relates Maybe Equus is animal Esperanto Don t hesitate, select buy and you ll surely not be disappointed. When Monty Roberts was thirteen years old he went off on his own to the deserts of Nevada to watch mustangs in the wild What he learned about their methods of communication changed his life foreverThe Man Who Listens to Horses reveals his deep love and understanding of horses We learn how, through his relationship with various horses, he gradually developed the methods which enabled him to communicate in their own language a silent language of gestures like signing for the deafAccording to Monty, anyone can learn the language of the horse and anyone can learn his Join Up methods In this book he tells you how This is the bestselling paperback autobiography that spread Monty Roberts message across the world and changed lives foreverUnique and inspirational, and with a message that resonates far wider than its application to horses, it might change your life too New York Times Best Seller forWeeksRead by overMillion People I am not a horseman in any shape or form although my father rode horses in the Great War However if you want to read a fabulously true horse story this is the book for you The book is written in straightforward and simple form by a man who actually knows precisely what he is talking about no fuss no bull, this guy knows his animals, and his acquaintances , which bodes well for a really good human and animal tale You actually feel you would like to meet and talk to this man, and the fact that he has met film stars and kings and queens would make no difference to his attitude or interest in what you have to say or do he would treat you with courtesy and charm A really great book Buy it for you family and enjoy it for yourself. I have always been interested in Month s approach to connecting with horses, although a tad sceptical at first.But having tried it out on my horse when I first got him, I can now see how it fits together.Reading this book, and how Monty was adamant that there was another way other than sacking a horse, has led me to persevere with my own lack of confidence in riding and trying new things for me and my horse Thank you Monty. Clearly, Monty Roberts is an outstanding horseman, trainer, business man and all round good guy I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I loved the idea that with the right training and supervision, anyone serious about horses and their welfare, could be using these techniques very quickly to full effect Horses have been mistreated by man for a millennia, and this compassionate approach has been a breath of fresh air, with proven results time and time again over the past 5 dacades Perhaps this theme of co operative and collaborative mutual respect may in some way help to undo all the suffering we have caused these wonderful creatures, if only a little I applaud Monty for having the courage to stand up so many years ago, and challenge the conventional wisdom of breaking horses. This is a wonderful story describing how Monty Roberts pioneered his concept of the language of equus Months of observing horses in the wild showed him that horses spoke to one another using their own body language Monty Roberts learnt this language and uses it to great effect Where once it would take days of tying up and hobbling horses to break them Monty Roberts can now demonstrate a starting of a horse in as little as 20 minutes He writes movingly about his life and family but the horse is always at the centre.of this very personal story. I enjoyed every minute of this book.Monty endured a lot as a child How he overcame his fathers horrendous brutality is completely inspirational Monty has had a really full life He was a dynamic and gifted child who has definately gone on to making this world a better place by teaching people how to live and work in a non violent way with horses I would recommend this book to anyone who can read. An interesting read for anyone interested in biographies and horses Information at the end of the book about the techniques he uses.
