Summary

Many horse trainers, even those who espouse the so-called natural horsemanship approach, take the position that horses who fail to obey a human's request are doing so as much out of perversity as ignorance. That's not Mark Rashid's view. In his words, "If we understand that horses can't separate the way they feel from the way they act, then we can start to see that unwanted behavior isn't bad behavior at all. More times than not, it's just the horse expressing the way he feels at that particular moment in time. . . .How we perceive that information dictates how we respond to it." Whole Heart, Whole Horse focuses on this idea, covering such subjects as gathering information from the horse, turning rider/trainer mistakes into positive experiences, developing realistic boundaries between you and your horse, understanding how and why horses release energy from real or perceived traumas, and reaching a comfortable balance point between horse and rider. Rashid analyzes developing softness, consistency, dependability, trust, and peace of mind in both horses and humans, as well as how to become a leader whom your horse will willingly want to follow and work with. Full of examples that extend beyond the training pen, Whole Heart, Whole Horse offers good sense and information that will make you a more astute, capable, and sensitive horseman and person.

    It’s always been said that it’s the thought that counts. But what may count even more is the labor before a thought that originates from creativity and affection that could only be generated by a need to give a gift with a personal touch. DIY gift ideas are around everywhere you look. Many require you to use simple craft items to construct items that are both functional and for aesthetic appeal only.  
    When preparing your DIY gift or gift set, like any other gift giving occasion, it’s best to remember the receiver of the gift. Often, a gift giver gets too excited when buying something for that special someone and inserts him or herself into the receiving end instead of thinking about the recipient’s preference or needs. This can be especially true when making homemade gifts. Time spent towards cutting, measuring, painting and other measures may make you feel so important you forget the recipient either doesn’t like the gift or doesn’t have a practical use for it 
    This book includes: 
    -25 ideas for how to create a DIY gift for anyone and for any occasion. 
    -a general idea of what kinds of gifts make the best DIY 
    -how you can go about putting your own creativity behind the gift
