Dick Piepers The Language of Horses will help any rider use the knowledge of equine characteristics to initiate communication and create successful interaction in a way the horse can understand. For example, an understanding of equine body language enables the human to alter what might seem an aggressive approach to the horse. By changing his approach, the person can create a sense of security, rather than fear, in his horse. Likewise, the horses quick flight-or-fight reflexes, designed for self-protection, can be channeled into fast responses to the riders cues. Consistency and repetition are key to the rider developing the horses differentiation skills with minimal stress. The resulting and growing predictability experienced by both helps create a calm horse comfortable with his rider.
