In Globetrotting horse trainer Rosie Jones McVey goes backpacking around the world in search of horse-training secrets. This is the story of her journey, across three continents, exploring horsemanship in radically different settings. With a backpack stuffed with her riding hat and chaps, a meagre budget and a whole lot of optimism, she set out on the adventure of a lifetime, to share horsemanship ideas with South American cowboys, Australian mountain men, equine behavioural scientists and Indian horse dealers, to name just a few. All along the way she learns from and contributes to the horsemanship she encounters, always with an open mind and from a non-judgemental viewpoint.
Fresh, funny and with a roller-coaster of emotions, this thought-provoking book will appeal to anyone interested in horses and horse-training methods.
