Horse trainer Rosie Jones McVey goes backpacking around the globe in search of horse training secrets. on her travels she encounters a multitude of equine challenges, such as racehorses in Calcutta who won’t enter starting stalls, and tourist horses in Bali who show extreme aggression. She also meets extraordinary trainers in Australia – like Buffalo, the mountain man who trains wild Brumbies, and gentle methodical trainer John Chatterton. She reports on the hotly contested “Way of the Horse” colt-starting competition in Melbourne (is it good for horsemanship?), and exchanges views with world famous equine scientist Andrew Mclean. In New Zealand she looks at pampered thoroughbred foals and in Chile she tries to convey the harsh truths of certain tack and training methods to a cheeky rodeo trainer. She spends time in the testosterone-filled world of Argentinian polo, and with cowboys in Pantanal, in Brazil, observing their traditions and methods. All along the way she learns from and contributes to the horsemanship she encounters, always with an open mind and from a non-judgmental viewpoint.

Fresh, funny and with a roller-coaster of emotions. A thought-provoking book that will appeal to anyone interested in horse training methods.
