Why does your horse try to bite you when you saddle up? Why does he take off the moment your seat hits the saddle? When your beautiful animal bucks suddenly or gallops wildly, curls his lip or shakes his head--understand the reasons why and how to provide the practical care he needs! Get into the equine mind with the help of a horse therapist who was also the award-winning editor of a bestselling equestrian magazine. Whether your horse is in the field or barn; training, riding, or traveling; or even feeling ill, you'll feel confident interpreting every aspect of his behavior and motivations. The many fabulous color photographs vividly reveal horses' expressions close up, and show them socializing, raising their foals, "asking" you to stand still, reacting to their surroundings and company, and more. A Selection of the Equestrian Edge Book Club.
