Book Details

What does a horse think, what does it see, hear, smell and feel, and how do emotions affect the horse’s existence? This book helps the reader take the first step on a journey of discovery. If we can understand the way horses see the world – in every sense of the word – we can unlock the key to their emotions and understand what prompts them to do certain things.

By highlighting many characteristics of the horse that are often overlooked by owners and riders – for instance, that horses first see negativity using their left eye; or that they first smell objects using their right nostril – the book thus reveals many aspects of the horse that will be unknown to many and explains why and how this can helo us with out training. It also explores how our own emotions and actions can affect the horse. The information is based on scientific research but presented in an easy to read format, and throughout the text there are practical tips for the rider and anecdotes of the author’s experiences of working with both riders and horses.
