Horse Books

Okay, so I just got a few books from my boss, and I was wondering what you think of them, if you have read them.

The books are:
-There Are No Problem Horses, only problem riders - Mary Twelveponies
-The Soul Of A Horse: Life Lessons from the Herd - Joe Camp
-The Soul Of A Horse: Blogged The Journey Continues - Joe Camp
-Whole Heart, Whole Horse: Building Trust Between Horse and Rider: Mark Rashid
-Clinton Anderson Lessons Well Learned, Why My Method works for any horse
-Clinton Anderson Downunder Horsemanship: Establishing Respect and Control For English and Western Riders
-Horsemanship Through Life: A Trainer's Guide to Better Living and Better Riding - Mark Rashid
-Training For Trail Horse Classes: Train Your Horse to compete successfully - Laurie Truskauskas
-John Lyons Bringing Up Baby - John Lyons with Jeniffer J. Denison
-Trail Riding: Packing And Training - Stan Walchuck Jr.

If anyone has read any of these books, please let me know how you liked them!

I also got the Pat Parrelli Level 1 DVD set, but I am not sure how I like PP.

I've read the two Mark Rashid books and they're great. I like anything Mark Rashid. I've also read the Clinton Anderson Downunder Horsemanship and it was good too. The best book by Mark Rashid I've read so far is Considering the Horse, that's a great one

Okay, thanks! I do not have that one, but I will try and read the two I have soon! I have skimmed through the Downunder Horsemanship one and it have a lot of stuff I can use with my filly, so we will see what happens! Lol. I am going to start reading The Soul Of The Horse books first though...

I like Mark Rashid up until he got involved with martial arts and went off deep end.

CA/JL/PP I'm not into, so not my thing.

Joe Camp have never read.

Mary Twelveponies is good.

Nice books you have been given though.

Horses make me a better person.
