We’ve all heard the saying, “horses are a lot of work.” But if dealing with your horse’s attitude is taking up all of your time, energy, and money, it might be time to take a closer look at what’s going on.
Author Meredith Hill has spent over 30 years observing and learning about horses in a variety of settings. From high-stress show barns to local rescues, she strives to achieve what she calls a “working relationship” of mutual respect with every horse she works with.
