This book saved my relationship with my latest competition Dressage horse. After purchasing this wonderful, sensitive, young warmblood, she was so frightened and lost her self-confidence to the point of being dangerous. She routinely reared, pulled back and fell over backwards. She destroyed my trailer and wouldn’t even canter. One rainy day I spent several hours in her stall calming her and using the Masterson technique on
her. This was the turning point in everything. She became so relaxed and trusting of my touch that she started to open up and seek comfort in me. I revert back to this technique whenever I need to calm her and before and after a strenuous show. The HORSE does all the work of targeting and relaxing key points of tightness. It is magical to watch. Anyone can do it because it does not require any more technique than just patience and
an open, listening mind.
