Horses in Company: Reference List

My new book Horses in Company, published in September 2017 by J.A. Allen, presents a radically new view of horse society that inevitably affects our attitudes to training and interacting with horses.
Unfortunately in the first edition the full reference list has been left out. It appears here, with apologies.
