Les chevaux ne mentent jamais
La véritable découverte de la méthode de dressage pratiqué par « ceux qui murmurent », c'est que les chevaux nous révèlent des choses sur nous-mêmes quand nous cherchons à déchiffrer leur comportement.C’est au nom de cela que Chris Irwin, une sommité au Canada et l’un des dresseurs les plus demandés aujourd’hui en Amérique du Nord, a su construire ce petit manuel d’initiation à la méthode pratiquée par les « chuchoteurs », comme un véritable programme de développement personnel du cavalier.Fruit de plus de vingt années de dressage et d’observation éthologique, ce guide à lire et relire mêle réflexions sur la relation humain cheval, commentaires morphologiques, examen des langages corporels des chevaux et des hommes et explications techniques simples sur la méthode du dressage sans résistance. Irwin nous montre de façon claire et positive combien assurance intérieure, conscience de soi, honnêteté et confiance sont indispensables dans l’établissement d’une bonne relation avec le cheval, dont la sensibilité et la nature de proie face aux prédateurs que nous sommes enrichit nos propres perceptions.En déchiffrant nos attitudes comme les chevaux les perçoivent, en toute vérité, et en nous enseignant comment nous ouvrir à leur langage, Irwin nous montre ce que les chevaux nous apprennent en matière d’empathie et de patience. Et ce qui est vrai avec les animaux et le monde naturel, l’est tout autant avec nos semblables.Son livre s’achève par un programme d’entrainement pratique à destination de tout cavalier ou amoureux des chevaux, pour commencer à « parler cheval ».

Horses Don t Lie
Written by one of the original Horse Whisperers Horses Don't Lie is the definitive guide to training horses and every horse trainer will welcome this method. After years of using his method to train horses Chris came to see that it could also be applied to human behaviour. As Chris points out: “A horse knows what you know.” The characteristics necessary for building good relationships with horses can be used to deepen our relationships with other people and to enrich our daily lives. Horses can teach us how to communicate with empathy and patience, not only with them but with each other. Humans, like dogs, are natural predators while horses are prey that evolved to band together in packs for protection. This results in two differing types of consciousness and for a human to think like prey teaches many things. It teaches the trust and honesty essential in building relationships, and not only in a relationship with a horse; while the sensitivity and awareness that characterises a horse's perception of the world are qualities we could all use in our own lives. “Always think like a horse and not like a dog.” The real magic of horse whispering is what horses reveal to us about ourselves when we strive to understand their behaviour. Horses Don't Lie will teach you about the connections we can make in our lives when we learn from horses.

The Mind of the Horse
Horses were first domesticated about 6,000 years ago on the vast Eurasian steppe, yet only in the last two decades have scientists begun to explore the mental capacities of these animals. In The Mind of the Horse, Michel-Antoine Leblanc presents an encyclopedic synthesis of scientific knowledge about equine behavior and cognition, providing experts and enthusiasts alike with an up-to-date understanding of how horses perceive, think about, and adapt to their physical and social worlds. Much of what we think we know about "the intelligence of the horse" derives from fragmentary reports and anecdotal evidence. Putting this accumulated wisdom to the test, Leblanc introduces readers to rigorous experimental investigations into how horses make sense of their world under varying conditions. He describes the anatomical and neurophysiological characteristics of the horse's brain, and compares these features with those of other species, to gain an evolutionary perspective. A horseman himself, Leblanc also considers the opinions of renowned riding masters, as well as controversies surrounding the horse's extraordinary mental powers that have stirred in equestrian and scientific circles. The Mind of the Horse brings together in one volume the current state of equine research and will likely stimulate surprising new discoveries.
