Harry Whitney stays busy with horsemanship clinics throughout the United States  . It was Harry’s enlightenment on the importance of paying attention to the direction of a horses thoughts more often that really helped develop my horsemanship. So it was quite an exciting opportunity for me, to be able to audit a 5 day clinic where Harry was teaching. I got to be there watching him work and ride the horses as well as teach the people. I particularly enjoyed watching him ride; his feel and understanding of where the horse is at underneath him was impressive; especially in relation to the amount of desire, straightness and accuracy of thoughts.

A Horse's Thought, A Journey into Honest Horsemanship, is a modern equestrian classic that no horse library is complete without.  It is the first of a five book series, a rare written glimpse into implementing the teachings of renowned clinician, Harry Whitney. Tom Moates's popular writings exploring his personal exploits with Niji, Sokeri, and other horses, as he sincerely attempts to improve his horsemanship skills with Whitney's patient guidance, are regular features in Eclectic-Horseman and America's Horse magazines. This book combines an abundance of new, previously unpublished material regarding this ongoing odyssey, with recently expanded and updated essays from the magazine series. Inquisitive as always, Moates applies his familiar candid and plainspoken style to probe the depths of very difficult aspects of horsemanship. The results are sometimes wrecks, occasionally triumphs, but always enlightening...and a lot safer experienced on the page!
  • The description says 148 pages. Mine has 126, and it needed a lot of pictures and double spacing to pad it out to 126. The insights, while accurate enough, are hardly earthshaking: A lot of round pen work involves dominating the horse. Sometimes you need to push a horse, and sometimes not. There is no such thing as "natural horsemanship". A horse follows a confident person better than a wishy-washy person. Don't rush. Most riders can figure this out for themselves quickly enough.

    He feels the need to round pen his horse daily, and obsessively wonders if his horse is "with him" or not. His horse would probably prefer being ridden to being psychoanalyzed daily.

  • In A Horse's Thought, Tom Moates adeptly puts into words what Harry Whitney so masterfully teaches. On page 14, Tom describes watching Harry work with a horse:

    "I'd never seen a horse brought around to a person with such a gentle touch. I'd seen horses driven around a round pen a hundred times with coiled rope slapping against chaps, or flag whipping around. Even if done gently, it was still done in a way that drove the horse. It wasn't so with Harry....He wasn't driving the horse at all."

    With these words, Tom reveals what distinguishes Harry Whitney from so many other clinicians of today. Harry is a unique horseman, and Tom's skill as a writer illustrates that so well in this book. If you are serious about getting better with your horses, you need to read Tom's books.

  • I have been to Harry Whitney's clinics and know it is impossible to come home remembering everything you learned and experienced at his clinics. Tom has made that all come home to us Harry Whitney believers.

  • What a fortunate day for me when my neighbor, Bev Martinkosky, recommended Tom Moates to help with the training of my seven year old Quater Horse mare! Tom has been working with Star since mid June and things are going great! She is really quick to learn but her owner (me) has a ways to go! Tom is also working with my daughter-in-law's horse, Tuesday, and she is a different horse! No longer "a fire-breathing" animal and coming along nicely! Tom's style is so calm, patient, and easy-going!!!
    >
    > I have now read two of Tom's books - "A Horse's Thought" and "Discovering Natural Horsemanship." His writing style is so easy to read. He is instructional without being "preachy" and is very personal about his own experiences/learning curve. I have loved horses all of my long life and have owned two prior to Star. I rode for years, but haven't for several now. Never did I understand the importance of Ground Work prior to riding until reading Tom's books! He has certainly opened up my eyes/understanding to "considering what the horse is thinking" and how she reacts within the herd. I am learning more each session and book (I now have three of Tom's books)! Working with Tom and reading his books has re-kindled my passion of horses/riding. What a "treasure" Tom's style of writing, the content and guidance! I cannot say enough to relate my appreciation!

  • I've been riding nearly all of my -- well, let's just say, I'm a very "seasoned citizen," so a lot of years of riding. My experiences over the many years have included a number of years showing/competing (mostly in pleasure and trail obstacle classes), until I discovered the world of Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt many years ago. I was very blessed to have been to a number of their clinics, as well as many of their proteges over the years. I have read all the books, watched all the videos . . . well, you know. In my humble opinion, no one (with a caveat) has come close to adequately "explaining," in written form, what this "feel" thing with a horse is all about that they teach! There's something so deep there, that it's nearly impossible to explain, it has to be "felt."

    Enter Tom Moates. I read one of his first articles a number of years ago about his quest in "natural horsemanship." I thought to myself, "Wow, this guy not only 'get's it' [this 'feel thing'], but he has managed to put it down in written form!" From that point on, I read any article I could find by Tom.

    Then I read "A Horse's Thought." Although I'd been riding and "feeling" of the inside of a horse for many years, there was still something I couldn't quite reach. I felt it was there, but didn't know what it was or how to get there. I was so intrigued by what Tom described in his experience with Harry Whitney and getting the horse's thought that I made up my mind right then and there that I had to see this Harry guy for myself! The experience of a lifetime, to put it lightly!

    I cannot thank Tom Moates enough, from the very bottom of my heart, for his wonderful books and opening my eyes to the possibilities that were there all along, but just out of my understanding and reach!! I've been getting a "soft feel" for, what, at least 25 years. Getting A HORSE'S THOUGHT IS NOT THE SAME THING!! Getting a soft feel is "mechanical." The soft feel that comes through from the horse when you have A HORSE'S THOUGHT, well, IT'S A THOUSAND TIMES SOFTER!! Mr. Moates, what can I say ... profound genius, in my humble opinion, for being able to put words to paper that adequately explain that!!!

  • I'm so glad that Tom Moates wrote this book about Harry Whitney. I have attended three of Harry Whitney's clinics and read all of Tom's books. The difference it has made in my life is staggering. The only bad thing I can say about Harry Whitney is that he won't self-promote, write books, market videos, etc.

    Thankfully, Harry lets Tom Moates write about his training methods and his clinics. Harry has made an incredible difference in my horse's life and my riding. I finally have the relationship with my horse that I have always wanted.

    Through Tom's expert story telling, Harry's horsemanship methods are brought to life. This book is a great introduction to Harry and is like a refresher course for Harry clinic attendees.
