Horses have a language and a logic all their own, but humans can learn to understand what they are saying. Using a question-and-answer format and drawing on real-life case studies, equine behavior expert Jessica Jahiel explains how a horse thinks and learns, why it acts the way it does, and how you should respond. You’ll find answers to common horse behavior problems such as how to handle a frightened or untrained horse, how to help a horse overcome its fear of the vet, what to do with a horse that kicks or rears, and how to help older horses break bad habits.
