“Mustang: Wild Horse to Riding Horse is an enjoyable, informational, beautiful ‘how to’ explanation of one trainer’s process and experience with a once wild Mustang. Author Vivian Gabor gives valuable, well-thought-out explanations of not only what she did with her trainee on a daily basis, but also why, and further reveals the psychology behind the system. The book is remarkably well-organized, detailed, and leaves no question unanswered as to the author’s experiences and the application of her system and methodology. A lovely journal that will speak to all equestrians, particularly those seeking positive, soft methods that work.”Marsha Hartford Sapp, Two-Time Winner of the Extreme Mustang Makeover and USDF Gold Medalist

Follow along as one trainer and a young Mustang mare discover partnership and trust while they prepare for the Mustang Makeover in Germany. For 90 days, biologist and horsewoman Vivian Gabor recorded her experiences with Mona, the wild horse that had crossed a continent and an ocean to find a new home. Through words and wonderful color photographs, Vivian shares the ups and downs as she progresses with Mona's training, discovering new insights about horses and their true nature along the way. Informational sidebars on the science behind the process of horse training help explain Vivian's reasoning for the methods she chooses to follow when working with a Mustang. Steps for patiently and naturally introducing groundwork, liberty work, and first rides are vividly illustrated. But it is the resulting friendship between woman and horse that most resonates, providing all readers an opportunity to imagine what it might be like to train a Mustang of their own.
