From the Horse’s Point of View – Andrea Kutsch
Detailní popis produktu
Kutsch bravely goes on to myth-bust popular assumptions related to typical gestures made by the horse, such as “licking and chewing” and “lowering the head.” She explores how ethograms can be used to map out equine body language and help us attain a clearer sense of the horse’s true perspective.
Additional areas of discussion include:
- How the horse’s physical and psychological needs must be met in order for him to learn, including what those needs are.
- The difference between inter- and intra-species communication.
- The introduction of a new reward-and-punishment model, never before seen in print, that looks at operant conditioning from the horse’s point of view.
- The need for non-violent communication on the part of the trainer.
- Identification of the training skills a person must have as well as the human’s responsibilities when working with a horse, and what these look like not from our perspective, but the horse’s.
Whether readers choose to try Kutsch’s ideas for science-based training or not, they are certain to never look at riding, training, or caring for horses the same way again.
