Publisher's Summary

John Saint Ryan has travelled the world working with horses. John's behavior with all students, whether equine or human, is aligned with his principles, which is a rare practice, and he is also able to share his knowledge in an agile and even poetic way, with openness, humor, and grace. 

This audiobook is a joy to listen to. You'll discover John's love and humility when he describes the lessons his mentor, Tom Dorrance, set him up to learn, and enjoy his humor as he tells horse stories from earlier days. John has drawn from life experiences as diverse as martial arts and acting to develop the self-awareness and poise that make him the excellent educator he is for horses and riders today. 

The great gift that John is sharing is an approach that combines science and art. John digs deep and effectively shares the science of learning. This is the key to the kingdom of educating the horse. He debunks myths that are still prevalent in horse training, like dominance strategies and the implementation of coercive practices. Instead, John offers working alternatives that are sensitive, perceptive, gentle, and effective because they are based on the scientific principles of learning. 

It also documents personal studies and theories which he developed over the years, which build into a one-month training program to help people with their horses' education. This is not necessarily just for starting horses under saddle, but can be used as a checklist for any horse you are riding. It's a way to make sure your horse has the best education for his life with us humans.
