Reviews - What do customers think about Life Lessons from a Horse Whisperer?

Not Dr. Doolittle, But...  May 12, 2010
You don't have to like horses to enjoy Life Lessons from a Horse Whisperer, but by the time you finish the book you'll appreciate their beauty and you'll understand how exceptional each horse is. You'll also learn something from them.

Dr. Sterrett is a skilled horse trainer. He performs with his horses at events called Sermon on the Mount. He works with an untrained horse in front of an audience, and within a few hours he teaches it to accept a saddle and rider, or do some fancy footwork. Sterrett talks to the audience while he works with the horse, telling them what the horse is learning. He draws a parallel to the lives of people and teaches them a lesson as well.

In the book, Sterrett also teaches lessons drawn from his work with horses. In between the horse stories he tells his own story; from his first pony to 4-H drill team to horse training in college to running a Christian horse camp for kids. He intersperses it all with the lessons. They are encouraging and instructional and feel a little like your grandfather trying to give you some advice. But the book is mostly about the horses and Sterrett's love for them.

I enjoyed the horse stories, but found the book a little disorganized. The author jumped around in time a bit and sometimes stopped in the middle of one story to tell the reader something else, as if he had just thought of it. In spite of this, the book is a refreshing change from the typical devotional or memoir. Horse lover or not, I think you'll enjoy it.

Pros: Interesting stories about horses and people and how God works in their lives.

Cons: It's a little disorganized and you might lose the thread if you don't read it carefully.

Sage Wisdom  Mar 29, 2010
As homeschoolers who have children who love horses, my husband and I went to a session of Lew Sterret's at our state homeschool fair. I'm pretty sure one of the stories he mentions in this book we witnessed! This book is not isolated to teaching about horse training - but if that's your interest, you'll have it fed; and it's not solely about life lessons but if that's what you're looking for, you also will be fed. I purchased this book to give to a young believer in the Lord who trains horses in much the same style as Lew - using biblical wisdom, coupled with a foundational knowledge of the way God designed a horse. I decided to check it out first and was brought to tears as I read Lew's transparent stories from his own life as parallels to horse training. It was a refreshing, inspiring, provoking read.
 
Horse Whisperer  Mar 21, 2010
I really enjoyed this book. It kept my attention and I learned many things from the wisdom of Lew Sterrett. I would recommend this book to any horse lover, but also to anyone who wants a gentle approach on how to deal with people and life.
 
Good, encouraging, easy read  Mar 3, 2010
I enjoyed this book. I have loved horses from an early age, although we never had horses on the farm. Maybe that's why I loved horses so much. The Lord spoke to me through the author in a few ways, one was that if I am constantly saying "I can't do this...." then I am focusing on myself and my powers, my abilities. God has called me to this, therefore I need to look to the one who called me, not myself. He is my leader, my trainer.
The other was that anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. This ministry that God has called me to is not going to be perfect, ever. Especially not at first. But if I want to hone my skills I need to start somewhere. I need to just let go of the fear of failure and focus on God training me and leading me.
Other than the things it taught me, I enjoyed the easy to read nature of the book. It was a very enjoyable read and I recommend it to others. I found myself nodding my head in agreement to the many things he said. I could see how some of the things would help me in rearing my daughter and son. I encourage you to check this book out!
 
Worthwhile read!  Mar 3, 2010
I have always been a horse lover. As a young child, I did have my own horse. We ended up moving and I never did own a horse again, but I will never forget how much I enjoyed riding and just being around horses. Someday, I hope to again spend some time with horses.

Meanwhile, when I got this book, I am not sure quite what I expected. But, I felt drawn to the book. After reading the story, I realize I needed to read the book, not because it had horses but because of Dr. Sterrett's message--the importance of the Gospel, and a message that focuses on the importance of being a leader who leads by sharing hope and earning the trust of those around him.

The story is artfully told with a gentle rhythm. Dr. Sterrett gracefully leads his reader through a wealth of experiences and shows the dignity of respect and hard work.

As a mother and step mother, I found the book challenging...and enlightening. So many struggles we go through can be made easier and end more successfully with just a bit of grace and gentleness.

I highly recommend this book.
