Description
A contributing writer at Equus whose articles have regularly appeared in The American Quarter Horse Journal, Eclectic Horseman, and Western Horseman, Tom Moates had always had horses at the periphery of his rural life. But it wasn't until his wife Carol brought home a "quarter horse, Amish trained" named Niji that Moates, in his mid-30s, began to truly connect with horses in a big way. In a candid and plainspoken style, Moates shares the highs and lows that come with the territory of starting out in what he calls the Better Way with horses, striving to follow the wise teachings of such trainers as Harry Whitney, Buck Brannaman, Pat and Linda Parelli, Bill Scott, and Ray Hunt.

"Natural horsemanship is largely about the relationship between horse and human, about seeing things from the horse's point of view. In plain language, Moates speaks of how he learned to work with Niji and with Sokeri, the mare he later bought. Moates was a total novice and unused to riding, so the emphasis on communication with the horse as a separate issue from the commands and aids used to guide the ridden horse makes for a refreshing addition to the large canon of books on horsemanship."—Booklist
