Authored by an experienced ethologist, Horse Behaviour draws on recent research in the field of equine ethology and applies it to practical knowledge that can be used to improve the relationship between horse and owner. The focus of the book is on interpreting horse body language and signals to enhance understanding and the bond between human and horse. The book maintains a scientific approach throughout and discusses in detail the science behind horse behaviour - including the evolutionary basis of behaviour, the nervous system and behavioural development. The author addresses behaviour in different situations and body states, including how horses see, hear and smell and how these functions relate to behaviour, also covered are mating and reproductive behaviour and behaviour when feeding, playing and resting. The author adopts a problem solving approach throughout and includes a section on undesirable behaviours and how to manage them. This practical and systematic book is an ideal guide for horse owners, breeders, riders and trainers, and also for equine science students, behaviourists and other equine para-professionals.
