"A great insight into the horse's instincts, awareness, and reaction to surroundings and its ability to adjust to environment and man . . . as well as the language of each, as it relates to the other. The book stresses the individuality of each horse and its needs. . . . A true, easily followed, in-depth understanding of the horse in pictures and text."---Don Burt, author of Horses & Other Heroes and Winning with the American Quarter Horse
From the Back Cover
Trudy Nicholson takes us on a journey into the world of the horse. Her photographic images capture the essence, body language, and social interaction of this often misunderstood species, while the text explores the interaction between horse and human.
Looking at the world from the horse's perspective and understanding its natural instincts and language provides a way of working with the horse that is both harmonious and productive. Whatever end result you wish to achieve with your horse-whether it be showjumping, dressage, western riding, or simply pleasure and companionship-this psychological approach will ensure a rewarding and lifelong relationship with your horse.
