Handling the Untouched Horse Book – Intelligent Horsemanship by Kelly Marks.
Few things are more rewarding than meeting a horse that is untouched by humans and over a period of minutes, hours or days causing him to believe that humans are not so bad after all – in fact that it is even good to be near them! In this book Kelly Marks writes about the techniques and skills required to achieve the answers to one of the many problems she encounters most frequently. Beginning with ways to catch the horse and separate him from his companions, Kelly proceeds to describe how to put a first headcollar on and then to lead the horse. As with all her teaching, Kelly bases her advice on experience gained from her work handling a wide variety of horses and ponies at her demonstrations and clinics around the world.
Kelly Marks is a former showjumper and jockey who started working with Monty Roberts in 1993. She is the founder of Intelligent Horsemanship – an organization committed to promoting the understanding and fair treatment of horses. Monty Roberts says of her work, ‘I could not recommend a better teacher of my methods anywhere in the world than Kelly Marks’.
Essential Reading for all Horse Lovers!
