For example:

"Petting Horse"
Horses enjoy the loving touch of a human being, but there's a right way and a wrong way to pet your horse.

Horses are basically suspicious creatures at heart, and if we act unsure or tentative when we touch them, they're liable to think something's wrong. Veteran horseman Kenny Harlow explains how he pets a horse.

"I just go up and pet him. If you go and cup your hand, and turn it down, and do all that stuff and go nice and slow and let him sniff at you and all, the horse is going to think you're somewhat scared to start with. If you just walk up and pet him like he's a dead broke, quiet horse, then that's what he's going to act like it. If you act like he's dangerous, he's going to act dangerous."

Horses are not big dogs. They don't like to be patted or slapped, even though most will tolerate a certain amount of that. The best way to pet a horse is to stroke, rub, or gently scratch him, and until you get to know him, it's best to first pet him on his neck.

Informative, stimulating, and often controversial, Rick Lamb's Horse Smarts for the Busy Rider provides insights in small bites that can be enjoyed by anyone interested in horses.
