Description

Horses have their very own language—they communicate with the movement of their body, their expression, and the distance they close, maintain, or increase between them and an object or person of interest. This language is integral to understanding their behavior and how to train them—the ability to recognize fear, frustration, willingness, and happiness is important to a handler’s safety and success, on the ground and in the saddle.

 

Now horse trainers Andrea and Markus Eschbach have created easy lessons in “horse speak” for horse-crazy kids. Their book, chock full of beautiful color photographs, explains the basics of horse body language and how to “talk back.” With a focus on groundwork that is safe and fun for children, this lovely book offers a one-of-a-kind introduction to the keys to natural horsemanship and how good communication can keep you safe in everything you do with your horse.

ANDREA AND MARKUS ESCHBACH are known for their horsemanship clinics all over Europe and specialize in teaching riders, whether beginner or experienced, how to work with their horse using minimal aids and equipment in order to preserve the well-being of the horse. For years, the couple has focused on taking what they have learned about horse behavior and applying it to training methods that enable the horse to participate willingly and happily in all you do with him. They are the authors of Riding Free: Bitless, Bridleless, Bareback, also available from Trafalgar Square Books.
