This hands-on, how-to training guide to understanding how horses communicate—through the movement of their body, their expression, and the distance they maintain between them and an object of interest—provides horse-loving children the keys to natural horsemanship and good communication with the animal. By explaining the basics of horse body language and how to “talk back,” the lessons demonstrate how to recognize fear, frustration, willingness, and happiness in the horse, teaching children integral concepts of horse behavior and training. Focusing on proven methods of ground training that are safe and fun for children, this instructional book provides information on horse instincts and how to react to them, furnishing young riders with a greater understanding and empathy for horses.
