Have read one - quite interesting but my complaint is a little odd - the book was too big!! Lots of lovely pictures etc but not a nice size for reading in bed lol

I read her book "Ride from the heart" a few years ago. I really loved it tbh.
I went to her for a 3 hour day session  with her stallion but found that to be empty of content and too lacking in direction for my taste.

I have also read Ride from the Heart, but that is the only one. I liked a lot of the stuff in it but found that I did the opposite to Jenny with my breathing techniques. ie  I breath 'in' to motivate the horse and breath 'out' to slow or stop the horse. However, after experimenting with both methods I found I actually got the same results with both methods  :cc_confused:
Interesting read with some nice explanations about contact and stretching.

Jenny gave me the first copy when I worked for her,your welcome to borrow it if you want to
I used to have to lunge using the breathing technique but I couldn't get on with it so lunged my way and Maestu  (her horse) went as well either way lol

That's what I found, Debbie. Isn't it strange?

I loved The first book Ride from the Heart. I have the Breathe life into your Riding ( i think thats correct title) also lovely book but i found it harder going for some reason, that may have been where my head was at the time mind you. Both lovely books.

I have Ride from The Heart - I liked it to begin with, but then just couldn't get on with it :rolleyes:I don't even know why - so I gave up mid way through and it is still in my pile of horsey books to read when I get the time :)
