1. Horse Brain, Human Brain: The Neuroscience of Horsemanship
Author: by Janet Jones PhD
An eye-opening game-changer of a book that sheds new light on how horses learn, think, perceive, and perform, and explains how to work with the horse’s brain instead of against it.

Using plain language, she explores the differences and similarities between equine and human ways of negotiating the world. Mental abilitieslike seeing, learning, fearing, trusting, and focusingare discussed from both human and horse perspectives. Throughout, true stories of horses and handlers attempting to understand each othersometimes successfully, sometimes nothelp to illustrate the principles.
Horsemanship of every kind depends on mutual interaction between equine and human brains. When we understand the function of both, we can learn to communicate with horses on their terms instead of ours. By meeting horses halfway, we achieve many goals.
We improve performance. We save valuable training time. We develop much deeper bonds with our horses. We handle them with insight and kindness instead of force or command. We comprehend their misbehavior in ways that allow solutions. We reduce the human mistakes we often make while working with them.

10. Core Conditioning for Horses: Yoga-Inspired Warm-Up Techniques: Increase Suppleness, Improve Bend, and Unlock Optimal Movement
Author: by Simon Cocozza
Gentle ways to improve the horse’s core fitness while relieving pain related to conditions such as kissing spine. Every equestrian wants to know: what is the difference between the horse that dances when you are on him, and the one that doesn’t?
According to Visconte Simon Cocozza, Trainer and Examiner for the La Fdration Franaise d’Equitation (FFE), it all comes down to the horse’s posture. The horse’s ability to use the powerful mechanisms already built into his body relies not upon the strength we can see on the outside but the strength on the inside.
This invisible and complex arrangement of internal core muscles control the horse’s posture, suppleness, and agility. Their good condition is the key to the dance. Equine core muscles are very difficult to isolate with the traditional training techniques common to horse sports.
However, by examining what we do with the human body when faced with a weak core, we can find new methods for conditioning these areas of the equine body. Cocozza has taken principles of the human practice of yoga and used them to develop novel ways of reaching deep within the horse’s body and:Gently unlock areas that may be a little rusty.
