There has been a change in how we treat our horses: We no longer "break" them to harness or saddle; we gentle" them, so they become our partners, their natural grace and athleticism restored and enhanced through humane and thoughtful methods. Beginning with equine evolution and domestication, Dr. Miller and Rick Lamb focus on the contributions of such classical horsemen as Xenophon, Pluvinel, nineteenth-century "whisperers, tamers, and professors," and modern masters like the Dorrances, Buck Brannaman, Pat Parelli, John Lyons, and their disciples, and the connection between rodeo and natural horsemanship. The authors describe how the horse's mind works, how horses learn, and how the revolution has used those principles, especially with regard to a training regimen for newborn foals developed by Dr. Miller.
Robert M. Miller, D.V.M., the distinguished equine veterinarian , is the author of several books, including the highly-acclaimed Imprint Training of the Newborn Foal and Most of My Patients Are Animals. He has produced several videos on imprint training of foals, and lectures widely on the subject. He lives in Thousand Oaks, California.
Rick Lamb is the producer of the successful syndicated radio program, "The Horse Show." He lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
