Learn attitude through the authors life stories

Listened to it every time I needed to do accomplish monotononous manual work such as weeding. It actually got me looking forward to the work because I knew that I'd get to listen some more of this book. In addition to golden principles for horsemanship, reading this book actually gave me more appreciation for the work I'd do. Everybody has their ups and downs. This book is about the comfort trap that Mark Rashid got into and how he worked his way out of it into honoring his teachers with the dignity in his work.

Thought provoking, landmark book, will read again

If you have any love for horses this is for you, and them!
Written by someone who developed such an amazing understanding of them and himself and is able to communicate it.
Cant' stop thinking about when I will relisten to it.

Another fantastic book by Mark

so many wise words and great stories and examples. Mark is the one horseman that has totally changed my view point on horses by his writing alone. All his books have now become my bible.
