In My Own Words:
I have quite a bit of a sense of humor, and I'm kinda a big tomboy. My favorite thing to do is Horseback riding, and my favorite sport in that area is Barrel Racing. I collect spoons, design webpages w/HTML, use NH to help my friends with their horses, Roleplay, and I enjoy writing poems and stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written--25 stars, April 27 2004
Mark Rashid did an *EXCELLENT* job of writing this book! His way was very intriguing, and you just find yourself GLUED.

5.0 out of 5 stars It sounds GREAT!, April 27 2004
This book sounds great, and - even though I haven't bought it - I really think I'm going to get it. Getting your horse to harmonize with you is a *VERY* important issue, and it sounds really intriguing. But, I do have one thing to say to another reviewer who commented about leading the horse in front of them:
You lead the horse walking in front, because you are showing him that YOU are the Leader, and he's the follower. If your horse spooks, he should *NOT* charge you or run you over. Why? Because if your horse really respects you as the *Lead Mare*, they wouldn't DARE step into your space.
Sorry to write so much, but sometimes... I just can't help myself ignoring those issues… Read more
