Editorial Reviews

Narrator Dan Lawson's tenor voice has a naturally affable quality, and his performance of Horses Never Lie expressively conveys the friendly wisdom behind renowned horse trainer Mark Rashid's methods and philosophy. Rashid's experiences with horses are narrated in a companionable manner, and his techniques in cultivating passive leadership with horses are easy to understand. Lawson does not overemphasize the audiobook's lessons, choosing to apply Rashid's maxim that the best way to guide is to let horses - or, in this case, listeners - figure things out on their own.

Publisher's Summary

A revolutionary approach to the techniques of working with horses, by a renowned instructor.

In Horses Never Lie, renowned horse trainer Mark Rashid challenges the conventional wisdom of "alpha leadership" and teaches the listener to become a "passive leader" - a counterpart to the kind of horse other members of a herd choose to associate with and to follow. Applying Rashid’s principles and techniques helps cultivate horse personalities that are responsive and dependable regardless of the rider. Reliving Rashid’s experiences with him, you will come to feel the same sort of compassion and appreciation for your horses that you do for the people in your life. This new edition features added introductory notes for each chapter that contribute to a more complete understanding of Rashid’s methods and philosophy.

Not just for the four legged creatures in your life

A beautiful and restorative picture of how to work with any creature... The four legged and two legged kind. If you are in the business of people and have a love for horses this will be especially powerful for you and break your heart for even the most difficult ones you work with!

excellent book read by a robot

What did you like most about Horses Never Lie, 2nd Edition?

excellent book, absorbing and amazing that no more people know this. Makes a lot of Americans sound very backwards as a horse handling nation

Who was your favorite character and why?

the horses are the best characters

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His delivery is stilted and robotic, at times it's like listening to a speak and spell machine. The narrator on this author's other book A good horse is never a bad colour is MUCH better

Any additional comments?

Anyone listening to this book who trains horses - please don't ride them at 2, they're much too young. Wait till at least 4.
