When Mark Rashid finds himselflying in a heap in the dirt during a horsemanship clinic he's giving in England, he realizes that his fall, the first in many years, is much more than just a fall off a horse. In his fifth book, Mark delves into the reason for the fall and rediscovers the meaning of his life's work with people and the horses they love. Even as a highly successful clinician, Mark is forced to face the fact that he had become complacent. Mark's efforts to recover from years of physical injuries and to rekindle his passion for working with horses are at the heart of Horsemanship Through Life. During this time of introspection and self-renewal, a chance encounter with a man at a clinic leads Mark to become a student of the martial art of aikido-"the way of harmony." That decision takes him back to his roots with the old man who taught him how to work with horses and moves him forward to a new way of blending and flowing with a horse's energy rather than fighting against it. The result of his efforts is a renewed commitment to compassionate communication with horses, using honor, integrity, and dignity. Combining his trademark storytelling about horses and people, practical advice on horsemanship, and his insightful outlook on life, Mark continues to entertain and educate readers in the captivating tradition of his previous four books. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to truly connect with his or her horse. Book jacket.

Internationally acclaimed horse trainer Mark Rashid shares and analyzes the remarkable events, quiet moments, and humbling stumbling blocks that—looking back—he can identify as significant in his personal journey to finding “softness” with both horses and people. “Softness,” via what many in the horse world today might refer to as “feel,” begins, Rashid says, with one simple truth: “It’s not about what we do that starts us on the path to softness, but rather, it’s what we don’t do.” Softness is having the sensitivity we need in order to feel when and if the horse tries to “give.”It is about developing the kind of awareness and feel it takes to know when we are working against our horses, rather than with them. In these forthright stories, readers get a glimpse of a life that has produced a man known for his ability to solve difficult problems with communication rather than force, as well as methods and techniques gleaned from decades of work with horses, horse people, and the “way of harmony” through the martial arts.

Now a major motion picture, starring John Diehl, Jean Louisa Kelley, and Ben Ashbrook, directed by Paul Krizan! One dark, vacant Nevada night, cattle rancher Henry McBride closes his eyes—only to open them and find his life suddenly in a shambles, with everything that means anything to him lost forever. Overwhelmed by grief and guilt, Henry drives away from his past as far and as fast as he can; jobs, towns, and whiskey come and go. And then guest ranch owner Jessie King extends an open and forgiving hand, and the arrival of a young mustang stallion—also wounded and alone—ignites a flicker of recognition in Henry. Jessie's powerful ability to connect with horses, and her gentle attempts to connect with Henry, slow him down long enough to let him heal just a little. But when Jessie’s former ranch manager returns with murder in mind, the fragile world she, Henry, and the stallion are building together threatens to come crashing down.
