Famous horse trainer Bobby Ingersoll has produced a fascinating book about the history of the California stock horse and the hackamore style of horse training. The centuries-old Spanish tradition is rapidly becoming a lost art. Ingersoll’s depth of experience and knowledge, along with many detailed illustrations by horseman Jim Paul and photographs by David R. Stoecklein, result in a volume that will delight and educate readers. The book is complete with practical horse training tips, intricate drawings and diagrams, and many photographs of significant riders and their hackamore horses.
“Following the Spanish tradition, Bobby’s philosophy deals with the heart and the mind of the horse. He believes that only through feel can one truly communicate to a horse and that’s what makes someone a good horseman, or what many call a “Horse Whisperer.” – National Reined Cow Horse Association
