I love horses and always have. I dabbled in English Style horseback riding a little when I first got married and loved every moment of it. I only stopped because I got pregnant again and didn't feel that riding while pregnant was for me. My husband and I loved to just go and be with the horses though and we would. Someday if we can I would love to have a horse or pony of my own. I think I have talked about it on here before, but we would love to own a mini pony and train it to help our disabled daughter do things.
I wasn't sure quite what to expect when I started reading this book. I didn't know much about Dr. Lew Sterrett except that he was the horse whisperer and that I wanted to read this book because it was possibly about horses. I enjoyed reading the Life Lessons from a Horse Whisperer by Dr. Lew Sterrett. He is an expert in the field of horsemanship. He has so much patience and skill to know how to gain the trust of so many horses...from the wild ones to even the tame ones trained into sophistication. He is also a pastor and owns the Sermon on the Mount Ministry and Miracle Mountain Ranch. He is a man that is not only close to his horses, he is close to God as well. He tells his sermons regularly while a top a horse and draws from life lessons he has learned from being with and training horses. He also uses these parallels in his book. His approach to working with and living with horses is very similar to his approach to working and living with people. This book is highly recommended and will help with building relationships on trust and motivation.
