Product Description

Review

“Any horse owner, from beginner to advanced, will find information of value in this book. The author's tone is authoritative without being condescending, and the layout makes it easy to grasp nuggets of knowledge even at a glance.”

Horse & Rider, March 2007

 

 

“If more of us read this book, there might be a lot less whip-cracking, bolting, and biting in our daily lives.  BOTTOM LINE: Your horse suggests you pick this one up.”

Horseman’s Yankee Pedlar, January 2007

 

“Hill first guides the reader through the physical, mental, evolutionary and social processes that lead to common equine behavioral traits. She then relates how that knowledge can be applied practically and routinely at the barn to create an effective partnership between horse and human…In short, a multitude of considerations ultimately affect how well a human communicates with his or her horse when mastering new skills and Hill capably addresses them all with insights she's gained from her lifetime of equestrian experience.”

Western Horseman, January 2007

 

“Each chapter is packed with specific, sensible, and useful information on every aspect of the horse from the physical to the mental and from the emotional to the social.”

America’s Bridle and Bit, August 2006

 

“Packed with fascinating facts, it draws you in to the horse's world before you know it.”

Knight Equestrian Books

From the Back Cover

What's Your Horse Telling You?

Equine behavior makes perfect sense when you understand a horse's survival instincts and fears and know what makes him feel calm and confident. As noted horsewoman Cherry Hill describes your horse's basic needs, routines, and responses to sights, smells, sounds, and touch, you will learn to anticipate his reactions and adjust your training methods accordingly. Your lasting reward will be a solid relationship with a curious, trusting, adaptable, and eager-to-please equine companion.

Format: Paperback
an excellent reference book to have to better understand your horse. It is simple, pragmatic and the book I suggest all my students should get. Whether you are young or old it simply makes sense to have this book in your library.

Some have said, "How can I think like a horse". After reading this book I now know how a horse is speaking to me. I understand what they are trying to tell me.
This book has helped me to understand them better and therefore make our conversations clearer.

Cherry Hill has been a guide and mentor through her books for years for horse owners and lovers. Clearly written and accompanied by excellent photographs, Ms. Hill gives clear and concise information and advice on how to interact with your horse in a way that keeps the owner and horse safe; maximize the pleasure in horse ownership and the understanding of horse behaviour. Her practical and no nonsense approach to horse ownership is set down in her books in a way that novice owners and experienced alike can benefit from. An excellent book!

Let me first say that I love horses and hate reading. And even though I hate reading i loved this book. There is so much packed into this book it is amazing. This books teaches so many real and relevant things in a way that is easy to understand using not only words but pictures and diagrams. It really teaches about horses and "why they do what they do". I do not own a horse but I do ride and I found this very helpful. It helped me to understand why my horse reacts different ways to different things. I would recommend this to anyone with a interest in horses.
