The author began developing her pioneering shiatsu techniques for horses in 1983 when a client asked her to help a severely injured horse with his pain after he reared and fell over backwards. Everyone had given up on him because of the severity of his skeletal injuries. Working instinctively, Pamela was able to help him to become sound after six months of inactivity and pain. She went on to share her work with horse owners and handlers around the world.The shiatsu techniques in this book will enable you to give your horse a basic session, covering techniques for his entire body that will relax, improve circulation, help prevent injury, and much more. Most importantly, they will improve communication between you and your horse. The techniques are explained so that the body of the practitioner may become more strong and flexible. Practising these techniques is conducive to centring the mind as well as the body of the practitioner and improving concentration.

What does a horse think, what does it see, hear, smell and feel, and how do emotions affect the horse's existence? This book helps the reader take the first step on a journey of discovery. If we can understand the way horses see the world—in every sense of the word—we can unlock the key to their emotions and understand what prompts them to do certain things. By highlighting many characteristics of the horse that are often overlooked by owners and riders—for instance, that horses first see negativity using their left eye; or that they first smell objects using their right nostril—the book thus reveals many aspects of the horse that will be unknown to many and explains why and how this can help us with our training. It also explores how our own emotions and actions can affect the horse. The information is based on scientific research but presented in an easy-to-read format, and throughout the text there are practical tips for the rider and anecdotes of the author's experiences of working with both riders and horses.
