Rick Lamb

One of my favorite horse reads is "The Revolution in Horsemanship: and what it means to mankind." It was written by Rick Lamb, host of the "The Horse Show" on RFD-TV and Dr. Robert Miller. It is one of those great books that brings equine history together along with science to talk about the evolution in training methods. It reads very well and hard to put down. I was fortunate to meet Rick at the NW Horse Expo and was able to let him know how much I enjoyed his book. He signed autographs and Kacy from All Horse Stuff and I got our picture taken with him. It is a true sign of a "horse geek" when you get giddy meeting horse people that inspire you. Rick Lamb just put out another book called "Horse Smarts for the busy rider." I am looking forward to reading that one as well.

Thanks for the info on the books. You and Kacy look like you had a great time.

The good news, is that I got to see a photo of you and Kacy! I'm sure it was a worthwhile experience.

Hi, I just hopped over here from Kacy's blog. Will read more of your blog later, the book you speak of I also have and it's in my horse book library that is growing all the time. I saw Rick at the Equine Affair in Columbus, Ohio a few years ago. Got to meet him and also Clinton Anderson; he is the trainer that I have a lot of DVD's of that has helped me so much with my horse Gilly's training.
I heard your news about the new horse place, good for you and good for Kacy!!!! :-)
Jane and Gilly

I was unable to attend the NW Horse Expo this year, but I met Rick Lamb at a previous one. I found him to be a genuinely nice man! Some of the other trainers get a big ego, but he seemed like he was just a "regular" guy!

Hope you enjoyed the expo. Those are always so much fun to just get away and immerse yourself in everything horse related.

Horse Smarts is a fun little book. My daughter got it for Christmas. You can just read random little nuggets.

I wish we got the RFD channel or the horse channel or whatever these shows are on.

I met Rick Lamb too, back a few years. Seems like a nice man who really cares for the horses. That's what counts most in my book.

I came on over from Kacy's blog. I'll have to check out that book, sounds like a good read. I missed the Horse Expo here :-(, guess I'll have to wait until next year.
