True Unity

Willing Communication Between Horse & Human

True Unity

True Unity by Tom Dorrance

First published in 1987, Tom Dorrance's book, True Unity, has become a classic to be read again and again. True Unity introduces you to the idea of approaching the horse with a feeling of acceptance for the whole horse, which is how Tom sees and feels the horse.

"What I know about the horse," says Tom, "I learned from the horse." Reading True Unity is like a visit with Tom, you come away thinking on ways to improve your relationship with the horse.

Although he looked like the "cowboy next door", Tom's been profiled in People magazine and has been called the "patron saint of horses" by the New York Times. Horse owners from around the world have looked to Tom for his kinder, gentler, much-proven technique of training horses.

Tom has been referred to as the 'horse's lawyer'. He gives the horse credit for his knowledge of a horse's feelings and problems.

Tom commented "The part that has meant the most to the horse and me is the communication between us. This is the part where I really had to devote a lot of thought. I have watched horses when they are loose by themselves or loose in a group; gentle raised or wild range raised, their naturalness will show. And by studying their actions and reactions I have been helped to understand how to present myself in such a way that the horses will respond to what I may ask of them. This I believe is true nature. This is something I have had to develop in myself, for myself, by myself. The True Unity and Willing Communication between the horse and me is not something that can be handed to someone, it has to be learned, it has to come from the inside of a person and inside of the horse".
