You should look up this one guy he has some videos that explain a lot of it.
I saw bits of one that was all on horse language and all that he said seemed to be valid.
I also want to say I can not back everything he says because I have not watched or researched everything he has to offer in training but I do love the way he lunges a horse, it was how my mare was trained.
His name is Monty Roberts, check him out.

"I haven't ever seen this described this way by anyone else, it's just what I have observed myself. The best way to figure out what horse language means is to watch horses in a herd and see what they do and when they do it, and how the other horses react" :unquote

Well, that's the way to do it, for sure.

Of course, it is also important to watch horses interface with their human owners - many of whom haven't the foggiest idea of what we are discussing. More is the pity.
