The latest insights from behavioral science debunk the necessity of the dominance theoryPutting to rest the widely-held and incorrect beliefthat the rider always has to be "dominant" overthe horse, this book presents the scientifically well-founded friendship concept as a horse-friendly alternative. It explains social structures among horses, examining hierarchy versus network relationships and the concept of the "patchwork family" that is relevant to life in the herd."
