Since it was originally domesticated in the late Neolithic period, the horse has been used for transport, labor, food and recreational purposes. This book enables the reader to gain insight into the past and present behavior of this fascinating animal as well as its profound effect upon human society. It will appeal to animal scientists and to those working with horses in a professional capacity as well as enthusiastic owners.

Helen Zulch is a veterinarian who qualified in South Africa, and has since worked in a number of areas of veterinary science. She developed an interest in animal behaviour and has consulted and lectured in the field for over ten years, moving to the University of Lincoln, England, to continue her career. Helen's main interests and areas of research include the prevention of behaviour problems through appropriate early life experiences. She has owned and trained dogs for over 21 years. Helen is involved in the development of the Life Skills training and research programme - which includes training classes - which this book is based on.
