Summary Horses communicate, with each other and with those outside their species, with every flick of a tail, every twist of an ear, with movements both subtle and grand. Their desires and dislikes are constantly expressed. While working with and observing the horses in her life, Sharon Wilsie found her artist's eye unconsciously freeze-framed equine gestures, no matter how slight or fleeting. She soon realised how herd members reacted to the same posture or movement in a consistent way every time, and that if she could mimic that posture or movement, horses would respond to her in the same way they responded to each other. For Wilsie, this was the entryway to the world of horse language; what she calls Horse Speak. This book is Wilsie's translation guide to the kinesthetic language of the horse. In it, she systematically teaches us how to have conversations with horses, not in our language of words and ropes, but in their language of the body. Sharing a mutual language forever changes the way we view and understand horses, creating safety and unity in our relationships with them and opening a portal into their innately sensitive and peaceful way of being.
