By Dr Marthe Kiley-Worthington
A unique and remarkably detailed study of a privately owned group of horses conducted by a leading behaviour expert over twenty years and spanning six equine generations. The author has set out to show, in this scientifically important yet accessible and fascinating work, what it is actually like to be a horse and, having gained that knowledge, how horse owners can apply it in everyday horse care and training situations to the greater benefit of both equine and human. Topics include: how horses acquire knowledge and why they become field naturalists and natural psychologists; equine emotions and feelings; communication and language; the conscious equine; equines as moral agents; the implications and applications of equine lore to the management of equines. Horse Watch is essential reading for all who are involved in horse management, training and welfare at any level.
