Description
When Mark Rashid finds himselflying in a heap in the dirt during a horsemanship clinic he's giving in England, he realizes that his fall, the first in many years, is much more than just a fall off a horse. In his fifth book, Mark delves into the reason for the fall and rediscovers the meaning of his life's work with people and the horses they love. Even as a highly successful clinician, Mark is forced to face the fact that he had become complacent. Mark's efforts to recover from years of physical injuries and to rekindle his passion for working with horses are at the heart of Horsemanship Through Life. During this time of introspection and self-renewal, a chance encounter with a man at a clinic leads Mark to become a student of the martial art of aikido-"the way of harmony." That decision takes him back to his roots with the old man who taught him how to work with horses and moves him forward to a new way of blending and flowing with a horse's energy rather than fighting against it. The result of his efforts is a renewed commitment to compassionate communication with horses, using honor, integrity, and dignity. Combining his trademark storytelling about horses and people, practical advice on horsemanship, and his insightful outlook on life, Mark continues to entertain and educate readers in the captivating tradition of his previous four books. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to truly connect with his or her horse. Book jacket.
