"Thinking Horse" by Kate Farmer is probably one of the best and most elaborately produced horse-guides available on DVD. Horses communicate differently from humans, and they "talk" about totally different things. To understand how the equine mind works, we must consider what horses "talk" about, and their motivations. "Thinking Horse" aims to help you understand the underlying principles of equine thinking and behaviour, and how these influence the way the horse sees the world. The 21 exercises on this DVD are developed form these principles. They will help you to get a better understanding of your horse, thereby giving you more fun and safety when riding. ***** DVD FEATURES: Colour, PAL (also playable on multistandard players and TV-sets in the USA and Canada), widescreen 16:9 (1:1,78), German and English language (Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, stereo compatible). Bilingual (English & German sound selectable), subtitles (English & German selectable) for the aurally impaired, 48-page booklet. ***** TRAILER and selected scenes available on YouTube (search for "Kate Farmer - Thinking Horse").

Kate also shows that "kind but firm" is the way to gain a horses' trust and respect making it choose to come to you and work with you. This particular lesson is one that needs to be learned by many would be horsemen and women and Kate not only explains clearly how to achieve it but demonstrates it throughout the dvd and training booklet.
I have started many horses using these methods and they do work with any horse if correctly applied, making the learning process completely untraumatic for both horse and handler.
I cannot recommend this dvd highly enough to anyone who wants learn about communication with horses and how to read and anticipate a horse's behaviour. Both as an introduction to equine behaviour for those wishing to learn from the beginning and for experienced riders who have come up through the traditional system and want to add to their understanding of horses.
