9780060932893: Shy Boy: The Horse That Came in from the Wild

"To appreciate Shy Boy, " writes horse gentler Monty Roberts, "you must see him or his kind running free and easy, in a wide open space." This compelling story, and the breathtaking photographs that accompany it, offer a chance to do just that. During a dramatic three-day ride across miles of high desert, Monty Roberts used all his skill to connect with the little mustang he finally befriended. In the year that followed, Shy Boy grew to love life on the farm, playfully demanding attention, and becoming fascinated by children. After a year of challenges and one frightening illness, the wild horse's exceptional spirit earned the respect and admiration of his trainers. And, as a result of a PBS-aired program based on his initial encounter with Roberts, Shy Boy gained international fame.

Yet throughout this extraordinary year, Monty Roberts struggled with the question, "Would Shy Boy rather be free?" With trepidation, he took Shy Boy back to the wild to let him choose. The event, and its stunning conclusion, are memorably captured in these magnificent photographs and in a story that is both unforgettable and inspiring.

Product Description:

From the author of The Man Who Listens to Horses – a top bestseller – comes the remarkable story of a wild horse.

In The Man Who Listens to Horses, we learned about Monty Roberts’ life and his amazing techniques for communicating with horses.

In this moving new book from famed horse whisperer Monty Roberts, his beloved horse Shy Boy takes centre stage. This book captures their unique relationship, starting when Shy Boy was a wild mustang. During a three day journey across 100 miles of Nevada desert, Roberts and Shy Boy tested one another’s fortitude and “joined up”. Months later, Roberts took Shy Boy back out to the wild, set him free, and gave the horse a choice: return to his herd, or stay with Roberts. What happened – told in gripping narrative and full-colour photos – is so dramatic and moving that it will surprise every reader.

The reader, even if he’s not a rider, will find Monty’s gentle method inspiring because it presents man as a partner in dialogue with a horse. We see Monty’s techniques in action and fall in love with Shy Boy just as Monty did.
