It has long been accepted that horses - and other domesticated animals too - can be trained to respond to our requests. How those requests are made, however, is a source of debate: Ask or tell? Firm or soft? Positive or negative reinforcement? Perhaps even more interesting is when we question the degree to which we expect horses to read our human behaviours. In general, we just 'act like us' and expect them to 'get it'. It is a testament to the horse's great patience that he usually keeps trying until he does!When we understand the function of both the human brain and the equine brain, we can to communication with horses on their terms instead of ours. And by meeting horses halfway, we not only save valuable training time, we achieve other goals too: we develop much deeper bonds with our horses; we train them with insight and kindness instead of force or command; we comprehend their misbehaviour in ways that allow solutions; and we reduce the mistakes we often make while working with them. In this illuminating book, cognitive scientist and horsewoman, Janet Jones, describes human and equine brains in collaboration. She explores the horse's way of thinking, as well as human brain function during athletic mastery. Mental abilities - like seeing, learning, fearing, trusting, and focusing - are discussed from both the human and horse perspective. Throughout, true stories of horses and handlers attempting to understand each other - sometime successfully, sometimes not - help illustrate the lessons.

Recensioner i media

"Dr. Janet Jones has written the book the horse world has been waiting for: Horse Brain, Human Brain. It is a game changer." --Tik Maynard, Trainer, Eventer, and Author of In the Middle Are the Horsemen "For all my equestrian life I have lived off the statement 'Know your horse, ' not only as a species but as an individual. In Horse Brain, Human Brain the author's understanding of this principle is abundantly clear. The last chapter of her book should be read first, last, and then read again. It's a wonderful summary of horsemanship." --Eric Smiley, FBHS, Olympic Equestrian, FEI Judge, and Author of Two Brains, One Aim "You need this book. Whether you have spent your entire lifetime around horses, or just patronize a local barn, or even only are curious about the horses you see standing in a field as you drive past this authoritative and reader-friendly book will help you get to know horses. We all need this information." --Wendy Williams, Author of The Horse: The Epic History of Our Noble Companion and The Language of Butterflies: How Thieves, Hoarders, Scientists and Other Obsessives Unlocked the Secrets of the World's Favorite Insect "Horse Brain, Human Brain gets right at the 'understanding' part of things, because until our brains grasp what the horse's brain grasps so differently, it is easy to think the horse is saying, 'No, ' when what he is really saying is, 'I don't get what it is you want.' This book explains the difference." --Denny Emerson, USEA Hall-of-Fame Inductee and Author of Know Better to Do Better and How Good Riders Get Good "It is difficult to convey just how much I adore this book! I can only imagine that I would have made far fewer mistakes along the way, had I been armed initially with the information packed into this book." The Literate Equine "This book is a welcome addition to the world of horses, and will no doubt have horse owners changing up some of their own behaviors and expectations around their horses, and encourage trainers to listen to what the horse is telling them rather than using force or detrimental methods to manipulate their horse's attitude or habits. Well worth a read, for riders at any level." --Catskill Horse "If the idea of reading about equine neuroscience seems intimidating, Dr. Jones's writing will put you at ease. Her experience, combined with her prose's mastery and clarity in Horse Brain, Human Brain is destined to make this book one of those dog-eared tomes covered in sticky notes, pen marks, and horse dirt that can be found on horse lovers' bookshelves everywhere." --Horse Network
