A MUST READ for horse lovers!
By Dr. Stephen Peters & Martin Black
What happens when you pair up one of America’s most talented horsemen with a neuroscientist who is an expert on the structure and working of the equine brain? You get a book that is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand horses better. This is a true source of real information, validated by science, written to help anyone who loves these wonderful animals that share our lives.
If you’re looking for “best practices” in horse training, this is it: empirical evidence proven to work in actual practice, not just theory.
Because this is primarily a science book, I thought it might be a text book over my head, but not at all. Dr Stephen Peters’ chapters about how the horse’s brain works are clearly written. Martin Black’s contributions discuss real life situations gleaned from his decades of hands on experience starting hundreds of horses. Numerous photographs contribute to the content and there is a glossary to help with the scientific terminology.
