1.0 out of 5 stars The Absolute Worst book I've EVER bought July 1 2000
I was so disappointed in this book. I have bought many horse books, but this one was certainly the worst. I think it is a pitty that force and strength is substituted for time and patience and really *teaching* a young horse to be confident and trusting rather than be afraid and just submit while it cant move, being tied in hobbles...every lesson praticly was introducing hobbles. I thought it was disgusting. If anyone would STILL like to buy the book, you can take mine for half price!kmrothmann@aol.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good read by Cherry Hill Oct. 21 2001
Cherry Hill writes another very informative book, filled with pictures, and written in easy to understand language. Would recommend it for anyone thinking of raising foals.

5.0 out of 5 stars book review May 24 2001
By Kathryn
This is a great book. It helps you know the little things to do when raising a foal. The things that most people wouldn't think of are in this book. Its a good book for beginner on up through experienced.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for all horse owners March 18 2000
This book was highly informative, and easily understood. I've always a been tying legs up and laying horses down, but to go back and read it in print just confirmed the value of proper, safe handling from the start. There is a fine line between respect and fear with horses, and firm, but fairness is constant throughout this book.
Even if one is not a handler, I recommend the book for a better understanding of the horse himself. This book is a must have for your home/business library.

5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable resource for all horse owners. Aug. 20 1999
By A Customer
This book explains safe, effective and efficient techniques for communicating with a horse and gaining his respect. No new-age touchy-feely gimmicks here, but good, solid, classic horse training techniques that work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely dreadful Aug. 5 1999
Usage of chains, tying up hind leggs, fore leggs, using all kinds of restraints have NO place in this world anymore. I was disgusted. There is no need for all these things. I would suggest read Pat Parelli, John Lyons or other NATURAL Horseman and woman.
As far as I am concerned 0 stars.
