Our Horses, Ourselves - Discovering the Common Body, by Paula Jose-Jones
This is another “touchy-feely” book that aligns itself with the teachings of Linda Tellington-Jones (the “TTouch”) and Mark Rashid. This one focuses on teaching the rider to develop “feel” in many ways, to encourage the softest touches on reins and flanks to request movements and settle oneself properly and deeply into the saddle. An unusual aspect is the author’s use of photographs with human dancers interacting with the horses.
