From the PublisherJulie Krone Jockey, Author — Riding for My Life Dedicated and devoted horse lovers have waited for a book that gives thorough, authoritative information on the horse. Detailed, yet understandable, this book tells you why horses do what they do and provides fascinating insights on how horses think. If a horse came with a translator, this book would be it.
Stanley Coren Professor of Psychology, University of British Columbia Author — The intelligence of Dogs Few books on horses consider what is going on in the animal's mind. This book provides insights into how horses think, what their level of intelligence is, and how they approach and solve problems. It also demonstrates that horses experience complex feelings such as anger, fear, or affection, and shows how you can read what a horse's emotional state is from its behavior.

The reader who invests in this book will be amply rewarded by an unsurpassed understanding — in modem terms — of the horse.
