How do I know what my horse is thinking?

 
Hello everyone, Mr Ed here.  I’ve been asked to contribute to this blog so you get to know things from a horse’s point of view.  I’m really excited about it, so I hope you enjoy it!
 
Have you ever gone to your horse in the stable, or gone to get on for your lesson, or watched someone ride and wondered how the horse was feeling or what he was thinking? Do you ever wish you could make a better relationship with the horse you’re riding?  One of the ways that you can understand more about us is by watching our body language.

What is it? 

For centuries, people have relied on the horses in their lives; often to survive during testing times.  During these times, horses have time and again proved themselves to be honest, willing companions despite the worst that man can do.  In contemporary times, horses in the UK, although sometimes used for economic purposes, are rarely relied on for practical purposes such as working the land or carrying us to war.  Often, horses are used for pleasurable pursuits whether ridden or not ridden, competitive or non competitive.
