What does the horse think? What does a horse feel?

The horse has been our companion in work and play for thousands of years, and yet only recently have we been able to venture an answer to these questions.

Delving into the partnership between humans and horses – one that stretches back fifty-six million years – Wendy Williams explores psychology, biology and evolution. She travels the world to talk to the experts, revealing what the latest scientific breakthroughs can tell us about the horses’ cognitive capabilities and social life and uncovering their remarkable ability to adapt to changing ecosystems.  From the rugged terrain of Galicia to the mountains of Wyoming, Williams observes first-hand why scientists regard this beloved animal as an evolutionary triumph.  With remarkable stories to match its profound insights, The Horse is as masterful biography that brings to life the fascinating past and finely nuanced mind of our noble companion.
