How horses experience the world-and how we know it. ""People have been training and riding horses for thousands of years without the help of science. But how much richer and deeper can our appreciation of these wonderful animals be if we do understand some of the 'whys' about them." What do horses mean when they neigh, nicker, and snort? When a horse refuses to jump a fence, what is it seeing? How can a horse's bones tell us whether people rode it or ate it? In clear, engaging prose, Stephen Budiansky takes us inside the world as horses experience it and explains how we came to these insights. A horse lover's treat and a great introduction to science in one exciting read, illustrated with ten black and white photographs and ten line drawings.Stephen Budiansky, owner of a horse farm and author of a highly successful adult horse book, "The Nature of Horses, combines his fascination with horses with his passion for scientific discovery to give young readers the perfect bridge from lovinghorses to appreciating science.
