Equus As a Second Language: A Translation Guide for Horse Lovers
Marlis Amato

Marlis Amato, founder of the Mirroring Equine Attitudes (MEA)programs, shows how horses in the domestic herd communicate with each other individually and in groups, and how their movements and gestures can be translated into human body language so we can speak directly with our horses in a way they can understand. The MEA programs train both horse and human so that the two can form a firm, respectful, and mutually beneficial partnership. She shows how learning to "speak silently" in Equus, the language of the horse, can be our chief training tool so we can approach our horses freely, without any special equipment, and educate them using the same language their mothers used when they were foals and the alpha uses with them daily. Marlis shares footage of horse herd interactions and compares to this to our human interactions in training and communicating with our horse. She demonstrates how we can elicit certain responses, both intentionally and unintentionally, using their language. For those looking to improve every interaction with their horse, both on the ground or from their back, you'll find this video to be invaluable.
