About Mark Rashid:
Mark Rashid has committed himself since youth to finding quiet but effective ways to work with horses. As seen in his eight books, Mark conveys his lessons in a practical, concrete manner – but with feel. Working around the world with a multitude of breeds and riding disciplines, he focuses on what is happening on both sides of the horse/human partnership – how the rider can clearly communicate while building trust. Mark’s instruction on communication involves always searching for the least amount of cue or pressure possible.
