Mark Rashid's ideas have had a big influence on me. I have read four of his books. I think they all were good and covered different things, but if I was to read just one it would be 'Horses Never Lie'.
Mark's ideas reinforced my instincts about horses. I believe them intelligent animals that have have thoughts and feelings, that they have good memories, and deserve fair and loving treatment.
By the way, this is my first post, so hello to you all. I am from Oregon as is my 10 y/o gelding quarter horse Tuffy.
