Publisher's Summary

Learn why your problem horse is not a lost cause with helpful tips from an internationally acclaimed trainer.

In A Good Horse Is Never a Bad Color, Mark Rashid continues to share his talent for training horses through communication rather than force. Rashid uses humorous, feel-good stories to relate his techniques of teaching horses by examining their view of the world. This book is a must-have for compassionate horse trainers and owners. Tales of Arabs, appaloosas, and paints - mistrusted and mistreated because of their breed - will give listeners a new perspective on these breeds and others. This new edition features added introductory notes for each chapter that contribute to a better understanding of Rashid’s philosophy and methods.

Must Listen for ALL people working with horses

I've looked for a horse training philosophy that lined up with my beliefs finally found it! Gaining understanding and trust is so much better than dominating and being feared. Now I know it is possible.

I loved it! ❤

As a horse rescuer, many of those stories where my own. The pair of Arabs reminded me of our pair of Arabs, George and Washington, who were joined to the hip and scared of human contact. When we would tackle a problem, we needed to keep in mind that if you did something wrong with one, it would impact the other. It took us years to get them back into trust. Wish I had read this book before I would have reached to the new "old man". Sadly, not long after we got them back to enjoying human presence, Washington died of a colic. George died a month later of what we think is a broken heart. He had a heart attack and just dropped dead. I could recall with you at least 5 stories that I went through and are part of this book. Still, there is one thing I would have loved to read about : how on earth do you teach a Colt not to bite you? 😱
