The Psychology Of Horsemanship: Understanding The Horse And You Pdf

By Claire Lilley

The Psychology of Horsemanship: Understanding the Horse and You PDF. Horses are fascinating and perceptive creatures. Developing a thorough understanding of how a horse interprets the world around them and deliberately being self-aware as a rider, are the essential skills to a successful and fulfilling partnership. In The Psychology of Horsemanship, well-known equestrian author and horse expert, Claire Lilley, shares her passion and knowledge about horses and riders developed from over forty years’ experience in the equestrian world, and more recently several years in the mental health profession. Divided into three sections, the book covers: Equine psychology – the horses’s senses, primary responses and emotion; Training psychology – the rider’s communication, training and learning from past experiences; Relational psychology – the goals, the development and the challenges faced in successful horsemanship. With high-quality photographs, diagrams and extended real-life examples, this book explores the application of psychology to the world of horses and how the understanding and evolvement of the horse-rider relationship impacts on both mental and physical development.
