Monty Roberts on Joe Camp

As I write this, I have known Joe less than one year, but it seems a heck of a lot longer. Of course I knew Benji and have marveled at how those stories were put together. But imagine how inadequate it makes me feel to realize how recently Joe came into horses. The man is a natural when it comes to understanding how animals tick and a genius at telling us their story.

The Soul of a Horse will entertain you while it educates you. It will take you on a journey from the prehistoric horse to the modern-day domesticated partner that we all seek to better understand. It is a must-read for those who love animals of any species. – Monty Roberts

Have you ever wondered what kind of person could begin writing a book like The Soul of a Horse less than a year-and-a-half after acquiring his very first one? I have.

Liberty Inspires Trust

The single most important thing you can do for your horse and your relationship with your horse is to gain his trust. To have him say I trust you. Completely. Implicitly.

Of his own free choice. His own free will.

And the only way to accomplish that is for your horse to be at liberty. To not be trapped by a halter and lead rope. To be able to leave or stay according to his choice, not yours.

I liken it to my relationship with God. He gave me free will, to go and do, or stay and trust him. If he had a halter and lead rope on me I’d be a prisoner wouldn’t I?

Kathleen and I are with our horses at least twice a day and each of those visits and all of our training are completely at liberty. Our seven never feel trapped by a halter and a lead rope. They are free to go and do, or stay, as they please. Therefore when they choose to stay, when they choose to trust, it is their choice, not ours. And that’s when everything changes for the better.
