Kelly Marks...?
 
Has anybody ever heard of Kelly Marks? I found a book on my shelf by her called Teach Your Horse Perfect Manners. I have no idea where it came from! I've been skipping around in it to see what it's all about and I like some of her techniques. I'm just curious to see if anybody else knows of her and what their opinion is of her. Thanks!

Hi, i'm from the UK and she is popular in natural horsemanship here. She works with Monty Roberts and uses very similar principles. I went to a 2 day workshop that she put on and was impressed in some ways but there was quite a bit of contradiction. Maybe it was just human ?

Have you read any books called Ride with your mind by Mary Winless/winlass? She is extremely good! I was extremely impressed.

Take care,

Michele

I've heard of Monty Roberts, but I don't know anything about his training. I noticed a couple of the methods in Kelly's book didn't make much sense to me, but maybe it was just me. A few of them made sense though. Then again, I haven't read the whole book. Just bits and pieces.

I've never heard of Mary Winless. I'll have to look her up! I'm guessing she's from the UK as well? I'm from the US, so that's probably why I haven't heard of her.

I noticed that this is your first post, also! Welcome! :]
