“I couldn’t put this book down!  Nanette Levin’s fresh approach and keen horse sense helps the reader demystify a horse’s reaction to its challenges in life, creating a common sense direction to training. . . . Do yourself, and your horse, a favor and read this book from cover to cover.”

“This book is refreshingly void of any ego bolstering frills and endless ‘tooting my own horn’ anecdotes. I really like it. Horse training is not rocket science, but requires a good knowledge of the nature of horses. Nanette Levin captured this very well and I like the solutions. Actually, I will surely try a few.”
