In the book “Theory of Mind in Horses”, devoted to the advanced cognitive functions of animals, for the first time in history, on the basis of an author’s scientific experiment, she proved the existence and functioning of the title construct in horses, which had so far been attributed only to humans. She showed that horses accurately read human intentions, communicate consciously and deliberately with them through body language, and perfectly detect and reflect their authentic mental states.
