Horse Speak, is a practical system for “listening” and “talking” to horses in their language, instead of expecting them to comprehend ours. Horse Speak can be used by anyone who works with horses, whether riding instructor, colt starter, recreational rider, or avid competitor. It promises improved understanding of what a horse is telling you, and provides simple replies you can use to tell him that you “hear” him, you “get it,” and you have ideas you want to share with him, too.
"Animals―from dogs to parrots to dolphins to sea lions―have learned hundreds, sometimes thousands of human words. It's high time humans began to understand the language of another species! This beautiful and important book is a landmark achievement along a path that will lead our kind toward greater compassion for our fellow sentient beings."―Sy Montgomery, author of the New York Times Bestseller The Soul of an Octopus and The Good Good Pig
"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 realize that the same is true with horses?"―Wendy Williams, author of the New York Times Bestseller and Wall Street Journal 2015 Best Book The Horse: The Epic History of Our Noble Companion
