I have read the book, and agree with almost everything you have to say Alex, but I'm sorry I still WANT to ride my horse.
You have made me feel guilty...I don't like that, there must be a happy medium!
But you don't seem to offer any, and sadly that is why people cannot and won't live up to your expectations. People wont stop riding their horses, or even retrict that riding to only 15mins... as you suggested early on in the book. it's just not going to happen.
A new way of looking at something, must offer an alternative to the old way of doing it, and not riding your horse with no alternative is never going to catch on. Sorry, to say, but I'm right. When you take something away you must give something back. Maybe you could invent a way of riding a horse that causes no pain. Love to you. Berry.
Alexander Nevzorov is leading the way
Thomas Jefferson is quoted as saying, "I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past". While I'm inclined to agree, I know it is useful to refer to history for the purposes of learning, reflection, understanding, forgiveness, and self-forgiveness. For these reasons, I urge everyone involved with horses in any way to read this book. We owe horses at least that much for the service and sacrifice they have made for us, against their free will I might add.
In this brilliant treatise, Alexander Nevzorov painstakingly reviews the history of the horse/human relationship and exposes the truth of how horses have been ridden and treated over the centuries up to present day. More interested in horses than humans, he bravely and boldly challenges us to reflect on the past and reevaluate the way we relate to horses and, by extension, live our lives. Originally written in Mr. Nevzorov's native Russian, countless hours were spent translating this version into English while staying true to the author's passionate tone and style. He is a true advocate for the horse and a horseman light years ahead of his time.
There isn't much I can add to the other reviews already written about this book. By shedding light on the past and the present, Mr. Nevzorov is leading the way into a brighter future for horses, if, that is, we choose to follow. Take a first step, read this book, and turn the dreams of a better future for horses into a reality today.
