Description

A source book for everyone who spends time with horses. Clearly written, without scientific jargon, this book helps us understand how our body language affects our horse. It explains how a horse's perception of the world is different from our human perception because horses sense the world differently. Whether you are getting acquainted with your first horse or have spent a lifetime with horses, the detail in the book is illuminating. No matter what training system we use, this information helps increase our awareness about what we are saying to our horse and what our horse is saying to us. It looks at the human and the horse as two beings who speak different languages and are meeting without an interpreter. The book explores the ways we can use our body language, breathing, energy levels, intent, gestures, touch, words and marker signals to let a horse know what we would like him to do. It also details the way horses express themselves to us, once we know how to look and listen. The book is illustrated and includes free links to video clips that help explain many of the concepts. It also contains eight Training Plans that can be used as springboards to write Individual Education Programs for specific horses.show more
