|"Equiknowlogy 101" Book Thoughts & Comments
husband and I were in a bookstore this afternoon where I found
"Equiknowlogy 101." Oh yeah, I'm watching RFD-TV and seeing all the
trainers. I've seen John Lyons, bought some
books and magazines, Clinton Anderson actually did help me start my
colt under saddle and I want to love Parelli, but can't
quite wrap my mind around all of it. Just ask my horses!
finished with your book, but I'm truly impressed. I went to your
website and looked at some of the links. I had horses as a kid and
lived to tell about it, and then my husband and I got into horses in
our early 40s. The only thing that saved us was we had enough money to
waste on a lot of trainers!!...
my purpose in writing was to tell you that your words wring true for
all of us horse lovers. Thanks for taking the time to share, for your
honesty and ability to write!! I'm passing your info along to several
read most of the Equiknowledgy book and I am really enjoying it.
You write like you're having a conversation with me. I appreciate
your sense of humor and
think it's a good way to take the sting out of the hard things you have
to tell people. Also the way you take the mickey out of certain
well-known clinicians. The best part so far? I'd pick two bits I
like a lot: The Keys to Being a Good Horseman and Trainer (p.
114) because it's a heartfelt try on your part to do the
impossible: put what you've learned in a lifetime into a few
words. The other bit I like is "Your Final Exam". Every
question, funny or not, makes you think. Which you have to do
every minute around horses." I recommend Equiknowlogy
101... To everyone!

The books and the DVD are great. We've had horses for 30 years
and are finally starting to understand how they think and how to deal
with them thanks to information like yours. I think the clinicians and
trainers are getting better at communicating also. We found out about
you through our friends Margaret and Rusty Hebel and your brother who
worked with one of our first horses and through a google search for
Round Penning DVDs. There aren't many out there and yours was the most
reasonable price-wise. Our horses are trained but haven't been used
much the last year and the round penning exercises has been an
insurance policy against possible wrecks. Can't afford any wrecks now
that we're past 60.

I just received your book today. I started with the preface and
got to page 13 before I realized that I was being chastised for not
paying more attention to my girlfriend Saturday night! I wake at
5:30 every AM so I can get on with my reading and laughing. I
really want to graduate! Thanks and without even getting in depth
to your new book, I have to ask WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE!
proud to have your guidance and experience in my life right now, via
your books! OH and I love the way you write too! I hear you
speak the words as I'm reading the material is so down to earth!
Thanks Again Kind Sir!
Well, I’ve finished Equiknowlogy 101 and am really hopeful you’ll have
a 201 continuing coursework book coming out soon! I learned a lot from
your books so far – and had a couple good laughs too. I love the
straight forward common sense approach that comes with
encouragement but without the all the fluff. Some of the
questions in these online blogs…I know there are supposedly no dumb
questions but perhaps there are a lot of inquisitive idiots?
My education continues at the Hilltop Ranch with riding lessons and
helping with chores every chance I get. I feel like I learn something –
even if it’s just a term or a little trick (like don’t hang the halter
where it will interfere with sliding the door, hang it further down!)
every time I’m there. I can’t tell you how glad I am that I read your
Whisper This book and now Equiknowlogy instead of taking the advice I
got to just go buy a horse and figure it afterward. You’ve
kept me out of a lot of trouble and probably some course work from
Black and Blue U!
I still look forward to one day having a horse – but I’m the first to admit I need quite a bit more knowledge beforehand.
Hope you write a follow up soon!
