The ancestors of the modern horse were roaming the planet over half a million years before the first humans made an appearance, and yet we have attempted to modify their behaviour to suit our needs. Susan McBane is one of a growing number of equestrian experts who has seen that the way forward in horse care does not lie in curbing the horse's natural instincts, but in learning to use them to advantage, both for horse and owner, It combines a biological and psychological survey of the horse's body and mind with the latest thinking and information on how to keep your horse physically well and mentally content. How Your Horse Works features a fascinating exploration of the horse's role in history, mythology and religion, revealing how and why horses have bewitched mankind since earliest times. Fully illustrated with colour photographs and clear illustrations, this book is a practical guide to modifying the way we live and work with horses in order to produce a relationship, based on respect and trust, which can lead to truly rewarding horse ownership.
