A comprehensive how-to manual for applying Horse Speak(R) principles to common training goals. In 2016 Sharon Wilsie's Horse Speak: The Equine-Human Translation Guide broke new ground for anyone who works with horses, providing a practical system to listening and talking to horse...s in their language instead of expecting them to understand ours. Now Wilsie has provided a comprehensive how-to manual for applying Horse Speak(R) principles to common training goals. Those familiar with Wilsie's work will find novel ideas that have developed since the first book was released, and those new to Horse Speak(R) will be supported with fundamental lessons that will allow them to start having authentic conversations with their horses during their very next trip to the barn. With a focus on how horse training methods in general can be improved with certain small changes in movement and mindset, Wilsie has once again created a resource of immense value across the equestrian spectrum. Readers learn: How to use intensity levels appropriate to a particular lesson. Why to include enrichment in a training plan. When to pause, when to allow, and how to adjust expectations. How to move and breathe like a horse. The best way to develop a healthy hierarchy with a horse. How to apply the 15 Buttons of Horse Speak(R) to help any training situation. Spiraling in and the optimal ways to move into and out of a horse's space. Signs of when a horse is saying, No, and when he is saying, Yes. How to change patterns of equine behavior in common trouble spots. With illuminating sections on basic handling, groundwork, and ridden work, Wilsie gives readers everything they need to improve the training techniques they already use by enhancing both horse and human understanding of the process and the goals. The result is improved behavior, enhanced performance, and a happier, healthier equine partner in whatever you choose to pursue together.
