5.0 out of 5 stars Great horse program. Great family entertainment., Feb. 29 2012
This is a great series. Very horsy, very realistic. We are thoroughly enjoying it. Also deals with some tough issues, like losing a horse. They are not showing in the "states".

4.0 out of 5 stars Rousing Good Star Trek, Jan. 14 2002
This was a fun Star Trek book. I enjoyed reading it very much. Good character building, interesting plot. It was a very enjoyable read. After several book series that have left me cold (and yearning for new S.T. books), it's refreshing to read something decent. I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series. It wasn't deep, it wasn't revolutionary, but it was enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Guide to Ground Work, Jan. 11 2002
I own a challenging horse, and have tried many different systems of ground work with her - Parelli, Lyons, Centered Riding, etc. All of them had some effect, but none have really changed her exciteable nature and dominant attitude.
After using some of the exercises in Dancing With Horses, my mare has a totally different attitude. She is much more submissive, much more trusting. It is remarkable.
The book is visually beautiful. The photographs are very helpful in demonstrating the exercises, and are very pretty. The instructions in the text are clear. The horses - and the author - are very handsome, so there are aesthetic benefits as well.
The author describes a certain exercise, and says it will have a profound effect on the horse. I'm accustomed to marketing hyperbole, so I read it, but took it with a grain of salt. And what he wrote was true. Doing that one exercise made an immediate difference in my horse's attitude.
I can't say enough good things about this book. I hope you'll buy it and reap the benefits.
...
Happy trails.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improve Your Horse's Well-Being: A Step-By-Step Guide to Tt, Jan. 21 2000
This is an outstanding book. Whether you are new to the Tteam system, or whether you have seen the videos and attended clinics, this book offers clear, step by step directions, with very helpful pictures. An extremely useful reference book. I have used Tteam on lots of different horses and seen immediate and positive results. This book gives very clear directions and instructions.
