Their Way through Independence, Self-Confidence and Creative Play
by Imke Spilker
Discover how to preserve your horse's independence
in a "human's world" by becoming more passive, receptive and accepting,
giving your horse the physical and emotional "space" allowing you to take
an unbelievably active role in your interactions , both work and play.
With your support, your horse will develop exercises that naturally balance
and collect his body, as if magic. In addition, he will enthusiastically
"work with and carry" you - inviting you along for the ride of your life.
Whether human or horse, feelings, posture and movement are inextricably
linked. With the ability to "tap into his language" - as explained in the
pages of this book - you can leave behind the demands, commands and cues you
once relied on, and instead discover an unbelievable realm of sophisticated
and mutually beneficial symbiosis.
In this astonishing new book, the horses have the leading role: Reno, the
"thinker" and his mares; Topur, the "guide"; Mighty Max and the boy's herd
- all horses who, in their charming way, lead us to develop and educated
eye and a special "feel" for them. Hundreds of authentic photos from daily
work, taken over many years, illuminate the changes in these horses.

how to listen to them. This book evolved from the work of the Communicative
