Internationally acclaimed horse trainer Mark Rashid shares and analyzes the remarkable events, quiet moments, and humbling stumbling blocks that--looking back--he can identify as significant in his personal journey to finding "softness” with both horses and people. "Softness,” via what many in the horse world today might refer to as "feel,” begins, Rashid says, with one simple truth: "It’s not about what we do that starts us on the path to softness, but rather, it’s what we don’t do.” Softness is having the sensitivity we need in order to feel when and if the horse tries to "give.”It is about develping the kind of awareness and feel it takes to know when we are working against our horses, rather than with them. In these forthright stories, readers get a glimpse of a life that has produced a man known for his ability to solve difficult problems with communication rather than force, as well as methods and techniques gleaned from decades of work with horses, horse people, and the "way of harmony” through the martial arts.

"Horses are a lot like people,” says renowned horseman Mark Rashid. "When there are gaps in understanding, confusion, and thus frustration, worry, and even anger are sure to follow.” Horses often grow up with these "gaps” in their training and education. When this happens, it can be difficult for the horse to be a willing partner to a human, and he may need to be "restarted”--that is, given a second chance to learn what is expected of him and how he can find a place where he is confident and comfortable both beside a handler and beneath a rider. In order to restart a horse successfully, we need to know how to retrace the steps the horse’s education has taken and find the path missed the first time around. In this book, the first of the expansive library of books penned by Rashid to include full-color photographs, readers are guided through practical steps for restarting horses, using Rashid’s simple yet impactful concepts derived from years of study of martial arts. We walk along with him as he proceeds with the quiet sorting of experience that provides the insight we need to give any horse the new beginning he deserves.
