Whether or not you're a beginner or an experienced horseman you SHOULD read this book. It is called "Considering the Horse". It's not about if you're considering getting a horse and what to look for and be prepared for when buying a horse, but is about considering the horse when ever you are working with it. The book really helps put you in the horses' shoes and look at what you're doing with your horse in the horse's persepective. It isn't a book that's filled with facts and saying you should do this and you should do that. But instead a collection of stories the author experinced when first starting out working with horses and helping other people fix problems with their horses. Anyway, it is an amazing book and recommend anyone working with horses and are around horses to read it.
