- respecting the nature of the horse

A book with 360 pages and more than 600 pictures of Horse knowledge
Knowledge is the horse’s sole protection.
True horse knowledge is also to be able to see, know and understand in the encounter with a horse and to be able to use this ability in the interaction with the individual in front of you on the basis of its characteristics. The meaning of the concept of horse knowledge is therefore far more than just knowing.
Our ambition with this book is to spread knowledge to benefit the horse and all people who use the mental and the physical power that these four-legged beings give us.
