Why horses?

Because "horse sense" means "common sense".

It's about developing your leadership consciousness. It's about true willingness versus compliance: Leadership isn't just about getting people from one place to the other. Leadership is about how we lead, how we are perceived, how we are received - are we aware of our body language, our attitude and our tone of voice. Our approach reflects those qualities, the language a horse understands. A horse shows us what we truly need to do to inspire and lead people.

It's about understanding how to inspire people: Everything means something, nothing means nothing. Communication is not only about what we say but also about how we say it. A horse cares nothing about your title or position only how much you care. Power is not an option, earn the authority to lead and your effort is rewarded.

It's about finding comfort in being able to face each other with trust and respect: The exercise "Face to Face with Horses" has an immediate impact on your awareness. The horse will react to you exactly as you present yourself, reflecting your  leadership style, how it's perceived and received.

It's about creating the desire to be partners: Looking at communication from another's perspective can initiate profound change in one day. Looking at processes and process management from an integral perspective will open horizons.

It's about focus; acting and reacting with total awareness: The exercise "Distance and Nearness" is about the importance of integrity and trust through open, honest communication. It's about team spirit, it's about collaboration, joy, fun, and self development in your place of business. It's about experiencing success as well as "success behind success", as Fred Kofman puts it in  "Conscious Business".

Horse Sense and the Human Heart McCormick

Adele Von Rust McCormick, Marlena Deborah McCormick: Horse Sense and the Human Heart: What Horses Can Teach Us About Trust, Bonding, Creativity and Spirituality

From Library Journal
Horses can teach us about trust and love and be part of a therapeutic healing process for troubled humans. The authors, both practicing psychotherapists, use horses in their treatment program with mentally disturbed patients, who often bond with their equine companions even when they are unable to relate to other people. The McCormicks explain how horses, quick to sense pretense, force people to rely on their instincts and to be honest with themselves. But riding is only a part of the authors' treatment program. Their clients establish close relationships with the animals by feeding and grooming them, cleaning their stalls and equipment, observing them at work and play, and learning about the long history of humanity's interaction with the horse. The healing process begins when clients learn to relate first to horses and then to their therapists. This is a fascinating book, though its appeal may be limited to those with an interest in psychotherapy or in the therapeutic use of animals. Recommended where interest warrants.?Deborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll. Lib., Rochester, N.Y.

Horse Sense for People Monty Roberts

Monty Roberts: Horse Sense for People. The Man Who Listens to Horses Talks to People

Monty Roberts, famous horse whisperer and author of Horse Sense for People, believes that "No-one has the right to say 'You must or I will hurt you' to any other creature, animal or human". He has long practised his creed of "non-violence, respect and choice" in his work with horses using a method he calls "Join-Up" described in his earlier book The Man who Listens to Horses. In Horse Sense for People he explains, through a series of carefully drawn parallels, how Join-Up applies to human beings. It is a system of behaviour management based on two-way communication, mutual respect and positive reinforcement of good behaviour. He rejects spurs, whips and other forms of compulsion for horses and their equivalent for human beings. Roberts and his wife Pat have helped to bring up 47 foster children--as well as three of their Own--on their thoroughbred horse farm in California.
Under chapter headings such as "Trust", "Against Violence" and "The Good Parent" he tells stories and details case studies based on the remedial work he does with--often deeply troubled--human beings. Take the mother who had been home-educating her five daughters and beating them almost daily. She suddenly realised that something was very wrong in her life and approached Roberts for help. Or Peter--"damaged goods" and "with enough baggage for a 40 year old, let alone a boy of fourteen"--the delinquent son of criminal parents who came to Roberts for jockey training.

Roberts is a wise man. And he writes beautifully with a knack of expressing profound truths in language so spare that you don't quite absorb the enormity of what he has said unless you stop and ponder. "Genius lies in the simplest things in life", he says and "Fear is the antecedent of violence; ignorance is the antecedent of fear". His inspiring but practical book should be compulsory reading for any human being who has responsibility for, and power over, others. --Susan Elkin

Hor5se Sense Al Ries and Jack Trout

Al Ries, Jack Trout: Horse Sense. How to Pull Ahead on the Business Track (Plume)

Lehrbuch f? Trittbrettfahrer
, 14. M?z 2004
Von  Winfried Berner (Mitterfels)   

Kernthema des Buches ist Self-Marketing - der Untertitel "The Key to Success Is Finding A Horse to Ride" ist eine pr?nante Zusammenfassung des Inhalts. Gemeint ist damit, dass man nicht so t?icht sein solle, den Erfolg aus sich selbst heraus (also aus eigener Kraft, mit eigenen Ideen etc.) anzustreben, sondern dass man sich ein "Horse" (eine Idee, ein Produkt, einen Menschen) suchen solle, auf das man setzen bzw. an das/den man sich h?gen solle. Die 230 Seiten werden damit gef?lt, dass der Reihe nach alle m?lichen "Horses" diskutiert und auf ihre Erfolgsaussichten bewertet werden. Was langwierig und - von einigen Highlights abgesehen - wenig erhellend ist.

In der Reihenfolge steigender Erfolgsaussichten werden genannt:

* The Company Horse (out, war fr?er mal)
* The Product Horse
* The Idea Horse
* The Other-Person Horse
* The Partner Horse
* The Spouse Horse
* The Family Horse

Relativ gut und n?zlich ist Kapitel 8 ?er das "Idea Horse", insbesondere die Regeln zum Erkennen einer guten Idee:

1. Is it first?
2. Is it bold?
3. Is it obvious?
4. Is it simple?
5. Will it upset the Apple cart?
6. Is the idea timely?

Danach schreiben Ries und Trout noch ?er "Changing Horses", "There Are No Second Acts" - recht interessante ?erlegungen zu der These, dass und warum zweite Versuche, ein Unternehmen aufzubauen, in aller Regel scheitern - und "Excuses, Excuses".

Dennoch: Insgesamt reicht "Horse Sense" nicht ann?ernd an das ?erragende "Positioning" heran; es erscheint eher als der Versuch, Letzteres als das "Horse to Ride" auszuschlachten.

HORSE SENSE Bonnie Bryant

Bonnie Bryant: Horse Sense (Saddle Club)

From School Library Journal
Grade 4-6-- Close friends Lisa, Stevie, and Carole share a passion for horses. During the summer that Carole monitors the mare Delilah's pregnancy, Stevie is charged with inventing gymkhana events and Lisa decides to write formal rules for their saddle club. Their preoccupations cause separation pangs among the friends until Delilah's foaling proves that, acting as one, they are a winning team. The vet congratulates the girls for a successful delivery, but none of the standbys cuts the umbilical cord or accounts for the afterbirth. More plausible than Ann Sheldon's "Linda Craig" series (Archway), the "Saddle Club" still lacks originality. Steer readers to Dryden's Riding Home (Bantam, 1988), which adds stepsister conflict, or Hall's Ride a Dark Horse (Morrow, 1987), which blends horsemanship and mystery. --Patricia G.

Horse Sense Jan Neubert Schultz

Jan Neubert Schultz: Horse Sense: The Story of Will Sasse, His Horse Star, and the Outlaw Jesse James

From Publishers Weekly
Based on a slice of family history one of the author's ancestors had his horse stolen by the James-Younger gang after the 1876 Northfield, Minn., bank raid this fast-paced novel offers crackling adventure in a colorful period setting. Fourteen-year-old Will thinks there's more to life than farming, but his stern father disparages Will's plan to breed fine riding and driving horses: "You haven't got enough horse sense to even think of raising horses!" At a livestock auction, Will meets some strangers, one of whom counsels, "A man's got to go after what he wants. Can't worry about other folks." Unaware that his new acquaintance is the notorious Jesse James, Will invites him and his brother, Frank, to visit, in hopes he can breed Star, his mare, with Jesse's fine stallion. Will gets his wish, but a week later is caught in the middle of a deadly bank robbery, after which Star is stolen by the fleeing outlaws. Will joins the posse, only to be offered a "life of adventure" by Jesse James (Will doesn't take long to announce that he prefers "law and order"). Schultz makes up for somewhat simplistic characterizations with her descriptive prose ("It got so quiet Will thought the bacon might stop sizzling, too"). The ably woven themes of thorny family relationships, horse lore and the outlaws' nefarious exploits make this a satisfying read. Ages 9-12.

Common Horse Sense Fred Bursey

Fred Bursey: Common Horse Sense

Fred Bursey's experience with horses started at age eight, working in a commercial pony ring. From age nine until college he worked on a large ranch near San Angelo on the South Concho River. All during grade school and high school he worked in the stables located in Fort Worth's Trinity Park. While working at Beasley's Stable, the owner, Dock Beasley noticed Fred's particular interest in horses and horse training. Fred was fortunate to study under the watchful eye of this world famous trainer. He was also a showman and show ring judge of the five gated American Bred Saddle Horse and the Standard Bred three gated roadster. During all of his college and high school years, Fred broke and trained horses. Before he completed high school, he bought and paid for 176 acres of land. Fred has had constant and continuing association with horses most of his life. He has been a ranch owner and manager since 1938. Fred does not claim the methods discussed in this book to be the only methods, but after more than 70 years of experience, they have served him well. He believes the best training is accomplished with love, trust, equine psychology and dominance rather than fear, pain and punishment. The chapters are short, to the point and easy to understand. They are written for the professional, as well as the new horse owner.
