Monty Roberts is amazing! I first learned about him after reading the book series called "Heartland" as a 10 year old, where a girl makes join-up with different horses, and that caught my interest. I wanted to have that "special bond" to a horse. And I really believe that Monty Roberts can do miracles with horses! The way he treats them with the care and respect they deserve is amazing, and the way he understands their needs, and his way of communicating with them by their own body language is truly amazing! This book is a great way to learn the basic principles to understand and use that language, that Monty calls "equus". It is extremely hard to do though in practice in my opinion, even though I got lessons from one of his ealier student called Maj-Britt Carter. The book is really great and it'll be a great help to any horsetrainer! The only reason I only give it 4 out of 5 stars, is because I think it need some more "cases" where it shows common mistakes. I have read and re-read the book and tried to use them in practice, but I just can't seem to get it right, so I'd like to know some common mistakes. But really everyone could learn from it both beginners and experienced riders. So just to make it clear - are you interested in horses - buy this book!
