The Man Who Listens to Horses by Monty Roberts

Monty Roberts is a real-life horse whisperer -- an American original whose gentle training methods reveal the depth of communication possible between man and animal. He can take a wild, high-strung horse who has never before been handled and persuade that horse to accept a bridle, saddle, and rider in 30 minutes. His powers may seem like magic, but his amazing horse sense is based on a lifetime of experience. Roberts started riding at the age of two, and at the age of 13 he went alone into the high deserts of Nevada to study mustangs in the wild. What he learned there changed his life forever. In The Man Who Listens to Horses, he tells about his early days as a rodeo rider in California, his violent horse-trainer father, who was unwilling to accept Montys unconventional training methods, his friendship with James Dean, his struggle to be accepted in the professional horse-training community, and the invitation that changed his life -- to demonstrate his method of join-up to the Queen of England. From his groundbreaking work with horses, Roberts has acquired an unprecedented understanding of nonverbal communication, an understanding that applies to human relationships as well. He has shown that between parent and child, employee and employer (hes worked with over 250 corporations, including General Motors, IBM, Disney, and Merrill Lynch), and abuser and abused, there are forms of communication far stronger than the spoken word and that they are accessible to all who will learn to listen.

Six months ago I was given a wonderful opportunity. I was asked to try and use my skill set as a radiation oncologist to come and perform a radiation implant on a horse with an orbital tumor called a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor. That may sound bad, but these tumors tend to grow slowly and rarely spread. That procedure was easy to be honest. It was eloquent in that the horse was asleep, there was hardly any bleeding, and we were done in no time at all. That implant worked as the tumor seems to have regressed and the horse is back competing in saddlebred competitions — and winning by the way!

To see a man about a dog or horse is an English idiom, usually used as a way to apologize for one's imminent departure or absence—generally to euphemistically conceal one's true purpose, such as going to use the toilet or going to buy a drink. The original non-facetious meaning was probably to place or settle a bet on a racing dog. The earliest confirmed publication is the Dion Boucicault play Flying Scud [2] in which a character knowingly breezes past a difficult situation saying, "Excuse me Mr. Quail, I can't stop; I've got to see a man about a dog. During Prohibition in the United States, the phrase was most commonly used in relation to the consumption or purchase of alcoholic beverages. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Ian Crofton.
