Essential Lessons in Horse Speak: Learn to "Listen" and "Talk" in Their Language
With her landmark first book Horse Speak: The Equine-Human Translation Guide, trainer Sharon Wilsie upended conventional methods of human equine communication (using words and ropes, for example) with her clear classification of the language horses use with each other (body, breath, and intent), as well as an unparalleled explanation of how we as humans can effectively mirror it.
Learning to "listen" and "talk" to horses in their language, instead of expecting them to comprehend ours, is a milestone in the progressive philosophy of horsemanship, helping find positive solutions to behavior and training problems and ultimately leading to fewer misunderstandings between horses and humans. In her much anticipated follow up, Wilsie uses true stories to relate examples of "problems" and how they were solved using Horse Speak. Her engaging narrative introduces readers to dozens of real life scenarios from different barns, various disciplines, and riders and handlers with contrasting experiences and backgrounds. Wilsie highlights her Horse Speak process, the clues that point to the best course of action, and the steps she takes to connect with horses that have shut down, grown confused, or become sulky or aggressive for any number of reasons. The result is a book full of incredible insight and exciting possibilities.
Essential Horse Speak: Continuing the Conversation – Sharon Wilsie
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 “listen” and “talk” to horses in their language instead of expecting them to understand ours. Now Wilsie has provided a comprehensive how-to manual for applying Horse Speak® 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® 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 will 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® to help any training situation.
- Spiralling 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 behaviour 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 behaviour, enhanced performance, and a happier, healthier equine partner in whatever you choose to pursue together.
