For horselovers, Tom Dorrance is one of the legends of natural horsemanship. This book should be in every horse owner's library. It's a little hard to catch all the wisdom until you get further along in your own knowledge of the horse. I'm rereading now and understanding much more. Mar 22, Goele Lousbergh rated it liked it Shelves: about-all-kinds-of-furries. I had expected to love this book as much as I love "Think Harmony with Horses" - since Tom Dorrance was Ray Hunts mentor and it always feels like you should move your way closer and closer to the source.
Surprisingly, I didn't. And I am not exactly sure why. So I have decided to just jot down some points, reread the book next year and see if anything changed for me.

Where Buck Brannaman and Ray Hunt stress the fact that there is no magic and anyone can learn who is dedicated and willing to work hard, this book seemd focussed on how hard it is.
Which is probably true, but also a bit discouraging. I think it is fair to assume that I am not far enough in my horsemanship journey to be able to truly understand large parts of this book.
Hence the yearly reread decision. It is just not as easy to understand a transcript of a clinic than seeing a video of it. Yes, we get that it is hard to put in words what happens between a horse and its rider, but if you're going to write a book, it's a bit annoying to say over and over again that you cannot put it in words. Interestingly: the words "straight" and "straightness" are everywhere, I had never noticed this so much in other horsemanship books.
I am glad I have started on that path myself. Jan 22, Marjorie rated it it was amazing. A book to read for anyone who cares about horses. Because of this wonderful man, Tom Dorrance, horses are finding a better deal across North America and perhaps the world. To the uninitiated this concept may be difficult to grasp.
Those who worked with Tom admit that it seems simpler than it is. Milly Hunt Porter is the editor of True Unity and the horse world has Milly to thank that horsemen such as Tom and Bill Dorrance and Ray Hunt are well known in many horsemanship areas today.
Feb 27, Marie rated it really liked it. Hard read and written in Tom's style. You have to understand horses to understand this book or it won't make too much sense. Sep 27, Marjori Ollson rated it really liked it Shelves: horses. Pretty good if you want to learn more about how to be patient with any horse. Wish I could have met him.

True Unity by Tom Dorrance
Now, in True Unity, Tom shares some of these ideas to help achieve a true unity for human and horse. The self Tom approaches in the horse is a total entity. True Unity allows the reader to feel and see the horse in the way Tom sees and feels the horse. It allows the reader to approach the horse with Tom — to approach the horse with a feeling of acceptance for the value of the whole horse — physical, mental and an innermost horse. People often ask me how I have gotten it together for myself and the horse.
