Easy lessons in ‘horse speak' for pony-mad kids. This lovely book, chock full of beautiful colour photographs, explains the basics of horse body language and how to ‘talk back'. With a focus on groundwork that is safe and fun for children, it provides an introduction to natural horsemanship and shows how good communication can keep you safe in everything you do with your horse. • Shows you how horses use body language to communicate. • Provides an introduction to easy groundwork exercises you can do to learn to read your horse's body language. • Shows how you can use your own posture and movement to ask your horse to go forward, stop, turn, and follow. • Includes a ‘horse-speak' dictionary of common horse body signals to help get you started. ANDREA AND MARKUS ESCHBACH are known for their horsemanship clinics all over Europe and specialise in teaching riders, whether beginner or experienced, how to work with their horse using minimal aids and equipment in order to preserve the well-being of the horse. For years, they have focused on taking what they have learned about horse behaviour and applying it to training methods that enable the horse to participate willingly and happily in all you do with him.
