Horses have so much pressure put on them these days and a lot of people aren’t aware of it.
Do you pause to notice how your horse responds when you enter their space, when you pick up a halter, when you touch them, when you ask them something, or are you too busy getting the job done?
Are your interactions all pushing and pulling, kicking and smacking or do you interact with lightness, ease and grace?
Do you manhandle your horse or do they respond to your intention and energy?
Do you drag each other around or do you move together in a light connection?
What language do you use when you talk about them?
If they could hear your words how would they feel about what you say?
When we act, speak or even think, we put out a feeling and they can read us like a book.
When we slow down, pay attention and observe we can read them too.
