"In these pages, Kerry explains how it is possible to determine if a horse has what it takes inside him to make what he has on the outside great." —Lone Star Horse Report (July 2012)

"The work contained within this text is without question an absolute 'must know' for all horseman. Even better, the knowledge this book provides will, without question save the lives of horses, as they will not be discarded and thrown away for training issues or broken down due to misunderstanding." —www.TheHorseStudio.com

"Thomas shows how you can use emotional conformation, behavioral genetics, and herd dynamics to improve your competitive performance. A unique perspective on training a competitive horse." —Equine Journal (August 2012)

"According to Thomas, there are several levels of equine instinct that contribute to a horse's behaviors, relationships and performance, all of which contribute to his athletic potential. The book features lengthy descriptions and explanations of Thomas' techniques as well as 100 beautiful color photos that illustrate his system." —Practical Horseman (August 2012)

"This book emphasizes the importance of truly understanding the horse- its needs, its nature and its mentality- and how to treat him accordingly in order to maximize his potential as a sport horse. This book will help you unravel your equine athlete's personality and needs, so you can evaluate your horse's 'emotional conformation,' which Thomas calls the real indicator of a horse's ability." —John Strassburger, Horse Journal
