About the Author:

A lifetime stockman shares proven common-sense approaches to parenting and teaching. With six years as a Wilderness Guide of troubled youth, he draws on life-lessons of raising five children and his passion of connecting the training of horses to obtaining success with human behavioral development. As a wilderness counselor, I watched scores of teenagers and young adults who were sent to the remote regions of Utah and Nevada, as a last recourse, to learn new behavioral skills. I primatively camped and hiked daily with them through all climates and challenges. I saw many resist against the new consequences of nature. I witnessed them stuck in their old addictions of substance and withdrawal, and limited to only a use of their learned defiant social patterns. I realized that their lives were not in a state of confusion from their faults alone; many of their parents contributed by not using the most effective teaching or parenting methods. I witnessed many times over the process of change from these youth and with their parents. Having raised, with my wife, five children, I am now able to recognize some of my own past was also in the need of new direction. I have made a discovery that the same techniques that are used in effectively creating a training relationship between a horse and his trainer are much the same that are needed when training children and teachers. I have had much new success. I am still a counselor in a therapeutic wilderness program. I continue to use my behavioral mirroring horses to assist many youth with their current personal and family struggles. I always have had a faith in a loving God.
