Written with the insight and understanding cultivated by the author's many passions, "Centered Self, Centered Horse" brings light and clarity to the subtleties involved in horsemanship. Often ignored or purely misunderstood, the simple qualities explained are those necessary in developing the art of horsemanship no matter your discipline or experience. A must read for all equestrians seriously interested in developing and improving their relationship with the horse. This book holds new meaning with every read and should never collect dust on the shelf.
