Michael Peace's first book, written with Lesley Bayley, is the best that I have come across in the genre of horse behaviour. It is clearly written and beautifully illustrated with excellent photographs.
The first thing that struck me throughout the whole book, was Michael's own body language in the photographs, never threatening or aggressive. His whole philosophy is of co-operation, not domination and submission. This book is a must for anyone who wants to know how a horse thinks and reacts, in order better to train him without force, communicating with him in a way which he understands. Too many riders expect their horses to think like a human- big mistake!!
'Think Like Your Horse' will show you how to build a partnership based on mutual trust and respect that can only come about through a thorough understanding of the mind and natural reactions of the horse.
