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.

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.
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!!
