Synopsis

The highly respected veterinarian Robert Miller reveals the “secrets” of behavioral psychology that create the bond that some people attribute to specially-talented “horse whisperers.” However, any rider can create this relationship by following the steps to natural horsemanship outlined by the widely acknowledged master of the art. This book outlines, step by step, the keys to working successfully with animals, beginning with the understanding that horses are not afraid of predators, but only by predatory behavior with which any animal – including humans – can threaten them.
Presenting new information and insights in user-friendly terms, Dr. Miller uses case histories as examples of successful natural horsemanship, and cites the innovations of such trainers as Buck Brannaman and Pat Parelli. This hardcover is a groundbreaking new work in the field, from a respected equine veterinarian who can help bond any horse and rider.

Dr. Miller is a veterinarian, lecturer and author of several ground-breaking books on imprinting foals and horses. Co-author of The Revolution in Horsemanship, he lives in Thousand Oaks, California.
