Trust Instead of Dominance Marlitt Wendt

Ref: Price: £14.99

Do riders always have to “dominate” their horses? In this book behavioural scientist Marlitt Wendt explores the widely held belief in the theory of dominance over the horse and presents a new scientifically based concept which is founded instead of friendship as an ethical alternative. She covers a range of topics from herd behaviour, the concept of hierarchy through to an insight into current learning theory.
