    About the book

    The Equine Listenology Guide is part of a trilogy that covers essential horsemanship, equine body language and behaviour, groundwork, in-hand exercises and riding lessons to develop softness, connection and collection.


    This guide is a relatable, insightful and practical book filled with a variety of groundwork, behavioural and ridden exercises and scenarios to work on with your own horse. The author carefully picks apart and creates exercises around multiple areas of horsemanship, allowing you to really understand how and why each is important, and offers techniques for you to take home and try out.

    Elaine uses personal experience and stories to put each section of the book into perspective and keep the guide relatable. The way it flits between serious, practical training content and witty stories of her own herd keeps the mood light and makes for easy reading.

    The book came teamed with The Equine Listenology Training Journal (available to purchase separately), which is a handy diary for tracking and recording all aspects of horse ownership and training. I also had The Equine Listenology Workbook, which I found to be another useful tool for further understanding horsemanship and working through and keeping notes from the main guide book.

    As a whole package, the trilogy of books are great for anyone wanting to delve deeper into their horse’s behaviour, keep an in-depth log of day-to-day activities, vet and farrier appointments and training. Plus, you will learn more about how our relationship with horses can be better understood and how that then translates into the ground and ridden work to create a better connection.
