In his third book, Horses Never Lie, Mark Rashid breaks new ground with the idea that you don't have to be dominant to be a leader to your horse. He challenges the longstanding belief that an owner must be the alpha leader to work effectively with horses. Building on the primary concept of his previous books -- looking at the world from the horse's point of view -- Mark Rashid clearly defines the difference between alpha and passive leaders. He explains how to be a passive leader and illustrates with compelling stories how horses can change from being indifferent or unwilling participants to becoming enthusiastic partners.

Perhaps one of the most life changing books I have read about horses. This book explains the nature of horses and their desire for peace and stability through a collection of experiences and stories. Mark Rashid observations of horses has changed how I work with my own horses. Starting out in the horse world, I though there was no other choice than to force a horse by being dominate. This, however, is not my nature, and I wished to work with my horses without the fighting and strife. Mark Rashid explains how this can be done in his laid back easygoing manner. I found the book interesting and very easy to read. It gave me hope for working with horses again. A must read if you are a horse lover.
