Martin Black is one of America’s most celebrated horsemen, one who has spent his life ranching, riding, training horses, starting young horses, working cows, and roping in the Great Basin tradition. Martin tirelessly shares his knowledge and experience with folks serious about improving themselves and their horses. He has written extensively, authoring both books (the Western Horseman book on Cow Horse Confidence and co-authoring the ground-breaking Evidence-Based Horsemanship) and articles that share his thoughts and experiences on horsemanship. Now for the first time, all of Martin’s major articles, most from Eclectic Horseman magazine, are being collected into three handy volumes titled: The Essential Martin Black. This book, “Volume No. 1, Horseback,” includes 28 articles with photos relating to riding topics. Whether you’re a long time student of Martin’s or just beginning to explore the realm of horsemanship, Martin’s articles will get you thinking and offer ideas for improving your horse relationships.
