New Book Released Horse Sense for Leaders: Building Trust-Based Relationships Features New York Times Best-Selling Author Monty Roberts


Author Dr. Susan Cain is pleased to announce the release of a new book, Horse Sense for Leaders: Building Trust-Based Relationships. The book features New York Times Best- Selling Author Monty Roberts’ concepts as they relate to leadership. “Whether you are leading others in your private life or at work, Roberts’s trust-based concepts in this book can help you find a strong foothold in building more effective relationships,” stated co-author Dr. Susan Cain.

The book is co-authored by Monty Roberts’s daughter, Debbie Roberts-Loucks and Dr. Susan Cain. “The book focuses on the power of joining-up to form strong trust bonds in your life. We feature the Join-Up process that Monty pioneered with horses to illustrate how inter-species trust is developed, then show how the same process works in human terms,” commented co-author Roberts-Loucks.

Roberts wrote his groundbreaking book, The Man Who Listens to Horses, about his experiences growing up in the rodeo circuit with an abusive father. The book follows Robert’s career training racehorses, culminating in his current work a global leader in non-violent horse training. Queen Elizabeth II of England has endorsed Roberts’ work, and he has received numerous awards for his work with horses, leaders, and returning veterans. Roberts’ belief in non-violence has inspired followers who agree with his philosophy:

“For centuries, humans have said to horses,' you do what I tell you or I’ll hurt you.' Humans still say that to each other, still threaten, force, and intimidate. I’m convinced that my discovery with horses also has value in the workplace, in the educational and penal systems and in raising children. At heart, I'm saying no one has the right to say, 'you must' to an animal, or to another human.”

Packed with case studies, the book contains never-before-published interviews and anecdotal stories about Monty’s career as a world leader in promoting non-violence. It details his approach to building trust, repairing trust, and helping others overcome conflicts. The book also contains exclusive, never-before-published interviews with Roberts.

“We thought it was important to write a book that would transfer Monty’s concepts from horses to humans. His concepts for building trust help people to understand how to enhance trust in their relationships. For example, we have included interviews with leaders from around the world in both business and the equine world. The leaders’ stories center on how Monty has impacted their lives,” concluded Cain.

The co-authors have also completed an updated edition of the first book, a field guide to complement Roberts’ original New York Times Best-Seller, The Man Who Listens to Horses. The book, Life Lessons From The Man Who Listens to Horses, is available on Amazon.
