"Whisper This" Book Reviews

All too often, Author Smokie Brannaman writes, he’s seen what he calls a “Black Beauty Fantasy” that ends up in…”broken bones, broken dreams, broken bank accounts and unbroken or ruined horses.”

To keep such scenarios from recurring when a wannabe rider steps up to horse ownership, Brannaman wrote Whisper This, his brief, common sense book on horse ownership, which he describes as a “no bull” book for horse and rider. Did I mention the author is blunt and plainspoken?

Readers looking for the fantasy horse experience probably will not appreciate all of Brannaman’s opinions: said opinions might hit too close to home. However, other readers and riders likely will wish their nerve and forthrightness was on par with the author’s.

And, yes. Brannaman is “the not-so-rich-and-famous brother of one of the finest clinicians and horsemen in the country, if not the world”
Bunkhouse review, Western Horseman Magazine, Oct 2007
