Review: If you wanted just one book on horse behaviour this is the one!
But it doesn’t just cover behaviour as such – it goes into how our choices regarding the way horses are kept, fed and ridden, affects their behaviour.
Andy raises many questions and while showing how he feels horses prefer to interact with humans and each other, he leaves it up to the reader to decide which way is best for them.
All the information is provided for you to make good choices for whatever you want to do with your horses and how best to keep them physically, mentally and emotionally healthy.
Andy relates his discoveries of herd behaviour over a 15 year period of studying two herds, a foundation group, and their progeny, in a relatively natural environment in New Zealand so this book will be of particular interest to the breeder.
I found it invaluable in understanding how horses live, behave with each other and how their social structure works within a herd. Knowing things like how a horse has its own personal space and who it allows into that space for what periods of time can be valuable in our interactions with them.
This wonderful E-Book has many photos and diagrams to illustrate everything from environment, safe fencing, treeless saddles, bitless bridles, body language and herd interactions. It has a comprehensive bibliography at the end of each chapter and is filled with interesting insights so we can truly get to know the horse as a unique species.
