An eye-opening game-changer of a book that sheds new light on how horses learn, think, perceive, and perform, and explains how to work with the horse’s brain instead of against it.
In this illuminating book, brain scientist and horsewoman Janet Jones describes human and equine brains working together. Using plain language, she explores the differences and similarities between equine and human ways of negotiating the world. Mental abilities - like seeing, learning, fearing, trusting, and focusing - are discussed from both human and horse perspectives. Throughout, true stories of horses and handlers attempting to understand each other - sometimes successfully, sometimes not - help to illustrate the principles.
