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.
