Product Description

Review

“This is an excellent read for someone looking for a new horse, who feels a conflict with their horse, or who wants to understand human-horse relationships more deeply.  Across the disciplines, any serious rider can learn from this book.”

Horsemen’s Yankee Pedlar

 

“[Yvonne Barteau’s] methods can open the door to understanding and making a lasting, harmonious connection.  Interesting reading!”

Natural Horse

 

“…a good guide for those just entering the equine world, especially those who are looking to buy their first horse.  It is also beneficial to the experienced horseman since it organizes and clearly defines what may already be intuitive.”

ForeWord

 

“[Barteau’s] secret is to identify each horse’s basic personality type and work with, rather than against, the animal’s natural inclinations.  Readers can put her successful methods to work for themselves to help yield winning results.”

Tack ‘n’ Togs

 

“For those interested in learning more about the fundamentals of equine temperament and personality, this is a good place to start.”

Ride! Magazine

Format: Hardcover
Book arrived in great condition, but I had forgotten about the slowness of the standard mailing system. So it was later than I expected.
The book is a birthday present for my daughter and she loves it. Easy to read and very informative. She is a rider/owner and knows quite a bit about horses and says this will be a valuable asset to her library of books on the subject.
Thanks

This book is an exceptionally pleasant read...well-written and easy to follow the concepts. I particularly liked the author's use of her own experiences and real examples to explain personality and training issues. I certainly have a very different perspective on horse behavior after reading this book. This one is a must in all equine libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ride the Right Horse, Understanding the Core Equine Personalities & How to Work with Them, by Yvonne Barteau Dec 3 2007
By Carla Inman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read this book in one sitting, and refer to it again and again. Yvonne Barteau has written a unique contribution to the equine genre. It helped me understand my mare, whom I have dubbed "social/challenging" under most circumstances and "challenging/social" when she is in heat! Barteau's extensive equine experience as a United States Dressage Federation medalist and competition dressage trainer gives her undisputed credibility. This is the perfect book for equine enthusiasts who believe they already have read everything written about horse training.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is also a very well written book-I would love to meet the authors April 6 2015

REALLY helpful book. I combined my order with "Is your horse a Rock Star", and the two "manuals" together have really made some things clearer for me on my approach to an almost midline on every aspect project I"ve taken on. (See my review for "IS your Horse a Rock Star").
This is also a very well written book-I would love to meet the authors...so very intuitive and realistic in their approach-with wonderful stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! Jan. 10 2008
By Stefanie A. Cheatwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
When I heard that Yvonne was going to write a book, I eagerly awaited its release. I have watched and competed against Yvonne on the Arabian circuit and admired she and Kim's ability to work with the horses under such 'non-traditional'(for the horses anyway) circumstances at Arabian Nights in Orlando. The horses seem very well adjusted to their jobs - and I just LOVE the show!! Aside from her USDF competition achievements mentioned in another review, working with these performance horses gives her more than enough credibility all by itself.
The book is very insightful and, while I feel as if I have been aware of the innate differences in personalities of the horses I have been involved with, this has given me a fun way to categorize them all over again. Considering your horses' personality can be such a tremendous asset to the overall training process that shouldn't be ignored. This is an educational and fun way to think it through!!
I haven't finished the book yet - but, I can't wait to learn and think more about how an INTJ like me can best fit with my seemingly Social/Challenging 1/2 Arab yearling and my Aloof/Social Arab stallion.
Thanks for a great read Yvonne!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book - A must for any serious horse person Jan. 14 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I got this book because of the articles in Dressage Today. I really love the case studies and the training tips. I was quickly able to pick out all three of my own horses and get ideas on how to improve their training. The book is easy to read straight through or once you know your horses type to go straight to the parts that apply to them. I highly recommend it.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love the way this remarkable woman empathizes with horses and humans alike. As a horse trainer myself, I found it a wonderful read, and I admire her dedication and humble attitude, which is often lacking in other trainers. Kudos to Yvonne, you are one of those wonderful women that would be fantastic to ride with and a pleasure to know.
