Decodes the body language of horses and provides invaluable insight into all forms of equine communication
Horses and humans have shared a strong bond for over 5000 years, and this relationship continues today, with millions of people across the world owning or working with horses. The Secret Language of Horses is the book equivalent of feed, stable, and exercise--providing all the basics for horse health and happiness. But it also goes beyond that, helping you truly understand your horse by explaining how to translate what your horse's actions 'say' and, in turn, how your horse interprets your behaviour. These insights strengthen the bond between you and your horse and enhance all aspects of equine activities, from hacking to competition.
In The Secret Language of Horses you'll learn about horse breeds and types, riding disciplines, horse communication, grooming and care. It's packed full of practical advice on everything from selecting your first horse and choosing appropriate tack to maintaning a healthy horse and understanding his needs as he matures. It's everything you need to know, and the key to a contented horse and a confident owner.
