Reviews

Filled with revealing photographs accompanied by solid explanatory text, Horse Speak provides an in-depth look at the body language of horses. Most of us know that when a horse bares his teeth and lays back his ears, trouble could be on the horizon if we don't take the hint. But there are plenty of other, more subtle cues that we miss. Horse Speak delves much deeper into that territory, encouraging us to pay closer attention to what horses are telling us and to enter into the conversation by using some of that same body language. Try out some of the activities presented in this book, and see how your horse decides to respond. We know that dogs use body language all the time to communicate with each other and with us. Why has it taken so long for us to realise that the same is true with horses?
