"Whether you are training your own young horse, retraining an older horse, or taking an active interest in the professional training of your horse, this book will help you understand the process better and get greater enjoyment from your riding." - Horses All
"For experienced horsemen wanting to get inside their horse's heads before getting on their backs, Making Not Breaking provides a practical and philosophical approach to teaching a horse to accept the training process." It offers the intermediate and experienced horseman a thought provoking approach to the training process equally applicable to English and Western disciplines." - Paint Horse Journal
"After you've read How to Think Like a Horse, this book starts just as you are about to put your foot in the stirrup for that first ride. I outline safe first-mounting techniques, detailed lesson guidelines, low stress training methods, bending exercises and transitions, and lateral work, all applicable for both the English and Western horse. I also discuss working with your horse's reflexes, riding out of the arena, and understanding balance, head set, and topline development."
