Publisher Description

Monty Roberts has traveled the world working with difficult horses. He has trained Queen Elizabeth's yearlings, jittery stallions on movie sets, and million-dollar race horses. In each case, he controls the animal without using force or inflicting pain. Monty's father, a traditional horse trainer, had taught his son to dominate a horse in order to "break" it. But when he was 13, Monty made a discovery that changed his life. As he watched a mare tame a rebellious colt, Monty saw that she was speaking to it through eye and body movements. Astonished, Monty realized that he could train horses by using their language, speaking to them in ways that would form trust and understanding. Developing techniques based on what he learned from the horses around him, Monty embarked on a remarkable career-one that would bring him international fame as the real Horse Whisperer. Now, in his own words, he shares the story of his memorable life. An immediate best-seller, The Man Who Listens to Horses is filled with courage, compassion, and Roberts' vast affection for his best friend, the horse.

  • “Riveting and inspirational.”

    - New York Times Book Review
  • “Here is a man who is a real, live horse whisperer…Monty Roberts takes us from the moment he learned to listen to horses through the development of his skill at communicating with and ‘gentling’ them rather than breaking their spirits…From those cold nights and blazing days in the desert, he would build a life anchored by his love and understanding of the horse.”

    - Washington Post Book World
  • “Absorbing…engrossing…Roberts’ story is more fascinating and profound than any told in fiction…The kind of life-altering book you never want to finish.”

    - San Francisco Chronicle
  • “This book is important reading for those interested in communication, particularly interspecies communication and linguistics.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Observing Monty’s philosophy and method of working with horses and people is one of the most profoundly deep, awe-inspiring, and heart-opening experiences I’ve ever witnessed. I highly recommend this book to everyone.”

    - Jack Canfield, coauthor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series
  • “The Man Who Listens to Horses has a style that’s every bit as graceful as Roberts’s horse-gentling…Roberts’ rememberings will touch the hearts of any who ever have known a deep love and respect for an animal.”

    - Lexington Herald-Leader
  • “A groundbreaking account…All occupants of this earth would be wise to listen to Roberts, who offers a road map to a kinder, gentler place.”

    - Tulsa World
  • “His portrait of the business of breeding and training horses is frank and fascinating, but the book’s most memorable passages cover rodeos and horse business in the west as it was in the author’s youth, and include a haunting portrait of his violent, racist father and some of the other remarkable figures Roberts knew (including a young James Dean). Over and above everything, though, is Roberts’ surpassing love for horses, captured here in his evocations of the horses he has trained over a career spanning four decades.”
