Another Shining Review!

“Janice L. Blake knows horses. She knows what makes them want to run and how to treat them. Her little asides make this instructional book race forward like a Derby winner. This book will please not only those who want to learn more about training and exercising horses, but also anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the connection between rider and horse, human and beast.”
