Safe and easy lessons in natural horsemanship for kids ages 6-10!

How do horses “talk” to each other? How do they “talk” to you? How can you “talk” back? Horse trainers Andrea and Markus Eschbach have created easy lessons in “horse speak” for horse-crazy kids. Inside this bright, colorfully illustrated book, find:

  • Dozens of pictures that explain the basics of horse body language and how to “talk back” in a way horses understand, using body movement, expression, and physical distance.
  • An introduction to easy groundwork exercises kids can do to learn to read a horse’s body language.
  • Instructions in how children can use their own posture and movement to ask a horse to go forward, stop, turn, and follow.
  • An illustrated dictionary of common horse body signals to help get kids started.

With a focus on groundwork that is safe and fun for children, this bestselling 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. An ideal primer for youngsters interested in working with and riding horses, and their parents.
