I've been reading a book I got for christmas titled, True Horsemanship Through Feel (Second Edition), by Bill Dorrance. So far, I'm really like his approach and method of thought. And to be honest, I think he was completely awesome for riding well into his 90's!!!
To me, Bill is a inspirational guy. He rode horses his whole life, but he said that it took him the better part of it to figure out gain a true partnership to get the horse to do what he wanted, through feel. It makes me feel a little better I didn't start riding until I was 13, and that I can figure it out in time.
And hey, when I'm 90 years old, I'm going to find a way to escape from the nursing home and get back on a horse.
Anybody else read his book? What do you think of his methods?
