Congratulations on deciding to take the step of adding a horse to your life! By now, you’ve made plenty of hard decisions, such as choosing the right horse and finding an ideal environment for him.

Ready to own a horse

I am a little unsure about owning a horse because it is such a huge responsibility and the amount of equipment and knowledge you need to take care of a horse is so immense. But this book made me feel a little better about it and gave me a starting point.

A blessing to the Horse community

Meredith is such a blessing to the horse community. She has put all of her knowledge into multiple books. I am so thankful for this wonderful woman and the things she decides to touch on. I don't participate in any sports anymore but she did them a great justice in how she explained them. She does not allow for people to be unprepared before starting their horse journey.

My favorite author

I have listened to everything by Miss Hill she’s great very insightful. She knows a lot and she doesn’t say it in a way that makes you feel less than. She’s so helpful and such a kind soul to educate all of us fellow horse lovers. Highly recommend.

What is dressage?

I hadn't heard of dressage before this book and I feel like I got a great overall look at it in this book and what to generally expect of myself and my horse if I were to begin doing this type of activity or competiton. I am off to find books on dressage. T o learn a lot of horse things listen to this book.

Listen to this one

I really enjoyed listening to this book and being given all of the helpful information this author had to give. I like that the information comes from personal experiences so it can be trusted more easily. This narrator has done a few other books I have listened to and she is great at what she does.

Western Discipline

Not only did this book tell you how to bond with your horse but the author goes into serious detail on western discipline and different sports and activities for your horse. I leaned about the English discipline that I wasn't well versed on and now I have more things I want to try especially in the Jumping department.

My Horse and I

If you are struggling with confidence and frustration when it comes to your horse this is the book you need. I've never felt very confident in the four short months I have been caring for horses. This author made me feel heard, valid, and confident in what I am doing.

Must Listen

I have read the physical copy of a previous Meredith Hill book and thoroughly enjoyed them. The way she expresses all of her knowledge is inviting. This narrator did her words much justice and kept me entertained while listening. Give it a try.

Act Casual

I have been so frustrated with my horse avoiding me, I allowed the human-animal barrier to limit my willingness to get along with her. I want her to trust me but was running into walls with how to overcome this. This author reminded me that bonding with a horse is simple. It is something that takes time that I was not allowing to happen. I am on day 4 of "acting casual" around my horse and I am hopeful.

Not Overwhelming

When authors put a bunch of information in one place it tends to get overwhelming or hard to process. This book was helpful and I was able to follow along section by section and to get my horse who I thought was stubborn to bond with me.
