Description

When Monty Roberts was thirteen years old he went off on his own to the deserts of Nevada to watch mustangs in the wild. What he learned about their methods of communication changed his life forever. The Man Who Listens to Horses reveals his deep love and understanding of horses. We learn how, through his relationship with various horses, he gradually developed the methods which enabled him to communicate with horses in their own language, a silent language of gestures similar to sign language: the unique art of the horse whisperer. According to Monty, anyone can learn the language of the horse and anyone can learn his Join-Up (R) methods. In this amazing true life book he tells you how. This is the bestselling autobiography that spread Monty Roberts' message across the world and changed his life forever. Unique and inspirational, and with a message that resonates far wider than its application to horses, it might change your life too.show more
