Now, in True Unity, Tom shares some of these ideas to help achieve a true unity for human and horse. The self Tom approaches in the horse is a total entity. True Unity allows the reader to feel and see the horse in the way Tom sees and feels the horse. It allows the reader to approach the horse with Tom — to approach the horse with a feeling of acceptance for the value of the whole horse — physical, mental and an innermost horse. People often ask me how I have gotten it together for myself and the horse.
I was born on May 11, , near Joseph, Oregon. As I look backward through the years of my life there have been hundreds of people and horse that have helped me develop my understanding of the True Unity and Wiling Communication Between Horse and Human.
Our father and mother were good people with good standards that they tried to pass on to their children. The family was always good to me. I always felt freedom. There were guidelines, standards and responsibilities for me to operate within. I had the freedom to explore and experiment so I could develop my own character. I believe that could have been the foundation for me to find, as I worked with animals, that this was as important to the animals as it had been to me. It would be very difficult for me to talk about working with people and their horses without Ray Hunt becoming involved.
It will soon be twenty-seven years since I first met Ray Hunt — that has been another fortunate experience of my life. I have never experienced anyone who could pick up on the slightest clue and build on it in the right direction in such a short time — it is as if he has been doing it all his life. This is THE definitive book on horsemanship.
To pack so much information into one little book; to influence so many of the great horsemen out there… You can always learn something new here! Be prepared to read it a lot! But after a little while, if you just keep trying and messing with horses, some of the things Tom says in this book will start to make sense. This is the basis of what is now called natural horsemanship.
Every time I read this book I find something new. Every time something else clicks. Recommend this book to anyone who seeks fine horsemanship. This book and others by Tom have great wisdom, insights, observations on training horses.
He gets you to thinking with that animal, be it horse, dog cow, sheep. I think this is a must read for anyone who is serious about working with animals.
Tom had SO much knowledge, and I greatly appreciate that we have this book to help with the journey. This is a book that you need to have on your shelf so you can revisit it periodically.
Every time I read this book I get something different from it, and a little bit more of the puzzle falls into place. Definitely one to own. I only met Tom once but his philosophy and this book continue to have great impact on my interaction with my horses and even those of my daughter and granddaughter! I re-read this book when my soul needs uplifting. But as mindful horsemanship shows, giving the horse a voice is the basis for true unity and harmony.
The amazing thing was that he could encompass all these things — and more — through feel. This is a book that deserves more than one read by anyone serious about pursuing better horsemanship. Faith Mendoza — February 27, The words contained in this book may not be completely understood the first time. But the wisdom it contains will keep you coming back to reading sessions time and time again.
No matter what your discipline, the horses you encounter will benefit from your time spent with this book. Probably the most valuable book I own. Best advice I can give while reading it is to set it down often and think about each part. No need to rush through it. Jodie Davis — February 27, The words in this book are the soul of the horse in type. Agreed, the 1 book to have. Laura Shilton — February 27, I love this book, no matter what stage you are at every time you read and reread this book you walk away having learned something new.
Roxszuzuspetals — February 26, This this the bible for horsemanship. I have been reading it over and over for the last 20 years. You always get something new out from it. To me , it is one book that you should have and read from with never stopping.
If you are going to have just one horse book on your shelf… this is it. You will find something new every time you read it and as time goes on more and more of it will be relevant.
