Die Tellington- Methode: So erzieht man sein Pferd

Diese Buch hat mich total gepackt! Vor kurzem habe ich mir meinen Traum erfüllt und angefangen, mich mit Pferden zu beschäftigen. Für mich sind Pferde Lebewesen mit einer Seele, also mit Persönlichkeit und Vorlieben bzw. Abneigungen. Deshalb sollte man sie mit Bedacht behandeln, ihrer Persönlichkeit entsprechend.

But well worth it if you are seriously interested in dinosaurs. There is a helpful foreward by David Weish...
