This is the second volume of stories by Ross Jacobs that tells the tale of a young boy mentored through his formative years in horsemanship by two old brothers, Walt and Amos.As the boy fumbles through the process of becoming a horseman, Walt and Amos take him under their wing and guide him along the path of good horse-manship. Sometimes they allow him to trip and fall and sometimes they leave him with more questions than answers, but they are always there with grand-fatherly advice to motivate the boy to search for the answers he seeks to become a good horseman.
The stories contain humour and some sadness, but each is full of sage advice and thought provoking ideas. They are both entertaining and full of important insights for every person that loves horses. It’s hard not to wish that everybody learning about horses had a Walt and Amos in their lives to guide them.
Ross Jacobs is a clinician and teacher who lives in northern New South Wales, Australia. He travels extensively in Australia and overseas to pass on his understanding of good horse-manship. He also devotes a lot of effort into writing for magazines and a popular blog that has a worldwide audience.
