Hi again. Continuing on from my post on Tuesday, I'd like to give you my views on how we can best help horses. We need to change the concept that there is only one right way to approach a horse and that it has already been discovered and that the horse and human must cater to it and that the best method is the fastest method. Fast is not better. Relationship is about time spent in connection. We need to recognize that better horsemanship is achieved through being continually educated by the horse to adjust our leadership to create a true working bond.
By training a horse in the moments he wants to be trained and by taking the time it takes to rebuild his enthusiasm when he stops liking it, we will continue to advance our horsemanship skills and hone our methods and in the process gain a higher consciousness.
