Monty Roberts is known wherever he goes as 'the man who listens to horses' because of his amazing ability to understand them and communicate with them. He has written this book to tell their stories, to put them centre stage. Here are all the horses thoughout his life that have had a special significance: from his first mount, Ginger, through the champion show horses and sprinters, to those he is working with today despite being nearly seventy years old! The Horses In My Life gives a unique insight into his non-aggressive methods and how his relationship with each horse developed. It is an inspirational collection of vignettes that reveals his love and respect for these noble animals. We are invited not only to get to know the individual horses but to share the immense joy that Monty found with them.
About the Author
Monty Roberts was born in 1935 and rode his first horse, Ginger, at the age of two. A child riding prodigy, he won his first trophy aged four and went to college on a rodeo scholarship. He has worked with horses all his life and his incredible 'join-up' technique - with which he gets an unbroken horse to accept its first saddle, bridle and rider in under 30 minutes - has made him famous the world over. His autobiography, THE MAN WHO LISTENS TO HORSES, was an international bestseller.
