Stephen Greene Press, publishers, Vermont - sixteenth printing, 1982. hardcover, 5¾" x 8½", with dust jacket. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. In this book Dr Smythe describes, firstly, the horse's instincts as a herd animal, and cites the adjustments necessary to adapt to behaviour opposed to its natural impulses; he then examines the horse's sensory advantages and handicaps. His chapters on vision examines the make-up and placement of the eye in various breeds and explains (with diagrams & photos) how a horse's actions are governed by what it can see. Equally enlightening are his sections on equine hearing, smell and taste, tactile sensations, emotions and motivations. He also discusses extra-sensory perception as an explanation for much that is mysterious in a horse's behaviour.
