Communication with Your Horse
WHAT ARE YOU TELLING YOUR HORSE?
Often the horse or mule is only doing exactly what the person is telling them. But, unfortunately, the
human doesn’t understand what he has been requesting! They think they are asking for one thing,
while their body language and energy are saying something completely different.
For example, why does a horse run over a human?
First, he has nowhere to go but up the rope, becasue that is where the human is dragging him
(where the human has always dragged him because he wants him to be with him , so he is always
holding him), Then the horse says: "When I do run over you and knock you down, I get release!”
So why do we hold him so tight?
Usually it’s because we think we can’t control him without holding him.
But holding him tight does the exact opposite: It teaches him bad behavior, it actually creates an
out of control situation, because what the horse is looking for is RELEASE FROM PRESSURE.
A human today does not understand how to use his energy to cause the horse to identify him as a
leader. He doesn’t know how to hold his ground, how to use his energy to get "big" so a horse
moves away. The animal says, "Not only do I not trust you and you can’t lead me, but I don’t
respect you either."
My job is to help the human understand (to read) his horse or mule. I assist him in properly
evaluating the current "condition" of his animal. He must also evaluate himself, daily, before
moving forward in trying to build the foundation required for a safe, secure, and supportive
experience with his horse or mule
