This is my all-time favorite horse training book. This book will change the way you think about riding your horse. Dominique gives simple, easy to understand instruction on how to better your relationship with your horse. This includes a discussion on the importance of meditation and visualization. Dominique also describes how to achieve lightness and true self carriage, without any special gadgets or force. I have read this book over and over, I each time I am able to take something new away from it. This book is a must read for riders of any discipline who truly love their horses and wish to learn how to better communicate with them.
