Three Energies

There are three main energies that we use in our body language when we are with a horse.  These are pushing energy, blocking energy and drawing energy. The horses are well aware of this body language because it is their language and they are reading our body language from the moment they can see us.  Are you sending your horse correct messages?

The Horse-Human Herd

Horses determine who is to be the leader of the herd by who pushes whom the best.  The leader is then revered as the one who will always lead the herd to safety.  In the human-horse herd, it is vital for the human leader to communicate with appropriate body language so the horse can gain the trust it needs to feel safe.
