Book Description

Feb. 9 2002
This Canadian best seller is a fascinating commentary on human-horse relationships. Irwin points out that trust and honesty are essential elements in building relationships with horses. The sensitivity and awareness that characterize a horse's perception of the world are qualities we can use to enrich our lives. The underlying message is that horses have a great deal to teach us about how to communicate with empathy and patience, not only with animals, but with each other.

Review

"A valuable, perhaps even classic book on horse whispering. . . " — Publishers’ Weekly "A proven record of remarkable achievements." — Western Producer "Chris Irwin has written a book that rings clear and true to those of us practising equine assisted psychotherapy." —— Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) Newsletter If you’re ready to try something new and contemporary, invest in this book. —— Horsmens Corral I really liked the author’s direct and unpretenious approach to himself, life, and of course, horses. —— Eastern Equerry

From the Back Cover

What horses reveal to us about ourselves as we struggle to understand their behaviour — that’s the essence of this remarkable and compassionate book by Chris Irwin, Canada’s own horse whisperer. Irwin points out that learning to think like a horse means exploring the ancient relationship between predators and prey, with humans and horses cast in opposing roles. In Horses Don’t Lie, Irwin’s message is that horses can teach us how to communicate with empathy and patience, not only with animals, but with each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes me want to re-read every word. May 30 2000
Format:Paperback
This book really touched me. The way Chris Irwin describes so sincerely his own experience and the life changing force horses had in his own life really inspired me, and made me remember what my dreams are. Although I thought this book would include more technical stuff, like how to aproach a horse, or how to know what to do when he's angry or scared, in the end, I didn't miss it at all. Why? Well, this book made me realize that the relationship you develop with every horse is unique, and every single horse has its own stuff to teach you. Loved the chapter about Etiquette... Even made me cry! Great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars first intro Sept. 25 2008
Format:Paperback
I remember reading this book many years ago.It actually was pretty much a first intro for all of us to Chris and his "NEW" way of working with horses. So much has happened since his first baby-steps into the world's arena,since the writing of this book,that I truly feel priviledged to have followed his career so closely. This book IS a fastinating intro to the man and is a good spring board to all his other works,DVD's and a (or so I hear from the horses mouth,as it were) new book to be released soon. This book "Horses Don't Lie" is an excellent glimps of the beginnings of a fascinating and dedicated man. "Horse don't Lie" but you get the strong feeling that neither does Chris.
