Horse Speak is not a training method or technique it is a practical system for listening and talking to horses in their language, instead of expecting them to comprehend ours. Horse Speak can be used by anyone who works with horses, whether riding instructor, colt starter, recreational rider, or avid competitor. It promises improved understanding of what a horse is telling you, and provides simple replies you can use to tell him that you hear him, you get it, and you have ideas you want to share with him, too. The result? Time with your horse will be full of what horse trainer and equine-assisted learning instructor Sharon Wilsie of Wilsie Way Horsemanship calls Conversations, and soon the all-too-common misunderstandings that occur between horse and human will evolve into civil discussions with positive and progressive results! Learn Horse Speak in 12 easy steps; understand equine communication via breath and body language; and discover the Four Gs of Horse Speak: Greeting, Going Somewhere, Grooming, and Gone. Practice regulating your intensity, and sample dozens of ready-made Conversations with your horse, as step-by-step templates and instructional color photographs walk you through the eye-opening process of communicating on a whole new level."

Reviews

"Filled with revealing photographs accompanied by solid explanatory text, Horse Speak provides an in-depth look at the body language of horses. Most of us know that when a horse bares his teeth and lays back his ears, trouble could be on the horizon if we don't take the hint. But there are plenty of other, more subtle cues that we miss. Horse Speak delves much deeper into that territory, encouraging us to pay closer attention to what horses are telling us and to enter into the conversation by using some of that same body language. Try out some of the activities presented in this book, and see how your horse decides to respond. We know that dogs use body language all the time to communicate with each other and with us. Why has it taken so long for us to realize that the same is true with horses?" Wendy Williams, author of the New York Times Bestseller and Wall Street Journal 2015 Best Book The Horse: The Epic History of Our Noble Companion"
