A remarkable 20 year study of equine lore, through six generations of horses providing a unique and important view of the equine's world. 

Many scholars and researchers accept that if we are to make progress in understanding the mentality of a different species we must first under-stand their experience; how and what they learn, what emotions they feel, how they perceive the world, and whether or not they are conscious. In this book the author has presented information and arguments from many sources, reinforced by the results of her own observations and experiments in an attempt to demonstrate what it might be like to be a horse. 

The message of Horse Watch is that by looking at the world from the equine point of view it is possible to both improve relations with our equine companions and fulfil their fundamental needs. So often, by simply owning a horse, the owner unwittingly deprives it of a good life. Marthe Kiley-Worthington does not claim to know all about the mentality of equines but her arguments and findings will make every horse owner reconsider the way they keep and train their horses.

Horse Watch is the result of a lifetime of research and the content is primarily based on a study of the author's own herd of horses over twenty years and through six generations of equines. It provides fascinating, challenging and invaluable information and should be read by everyone who owns or loves horses.
