I for one am so glad this book was written, then fine tuned. While only part way through as this wonderful tome is not a quick read but something to digest slowly, working on exercises in succession until they are done well has proven immense. "Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect." By investing time in yourself and your horse(s), using this possibly as a new way of thinking about and feeling the horse so s/he can feel of you, progress towards unity is nearly assured. It is the next best thing to having Bill Dorrance himself right next to you.
