I'd like to share with you some of the information I've learned from the horses. I thought I knew quite a bit about being with a horse - until, that is, I started researching and studying them closely. As it turns out, my knowledge barely scratched the surface of understanding.

If you want to understand your horse's behavior better, then please read these articles. You'll find a lot of information you thought you knew already!
