Knowing this, we are able to appreciate and relate to them more fully, and even laugh when they reveal who they really are.

Dave Elston provides humorous cartoon drawings of each of the personalities.

Is Your Horse a Rock Star? is both insightful, fun, and a must-read for anyone who wants to improve their relationship with their horse, or their overall understanding of these amazing animals in general.
