Easy-to-learn lessons in natural horsemanship for kids! Andrea and Markus Eschbach, authors of the bestselling book How to Speak Horse, are back with another fabulously illustrated introduction to safe and fun horse handling and riding skills.
Beginning with the basics of how horses use body language to communicate, Andrea and Markus teach children how to "listen" to what their horse is saying and "talk back" in a way he understands while leading, grooming, tacking up, and eventually riding.
With a focus on building the horse's trust in his human partner, young riders gain confidence through exercises on horseback. Best of all, Andrea and Markus nurture a habit of care and respect for the horse that helps prepare children for a lifetime of rewarding time spent in the company of horses.
