Imagine being part of a team where a key member weighs half a tonne, has four legs and does not understand your spoken language. Also imagine that it knows your innermost thoughts, fears and intentions and will not move or work with you until those thoughts, emotions and body language are consistent and clear.
Up to 93% of meaning is communicated non-verbally. With their prey instincts and hypersensitive awareness, horses size people up instantly and accurately. They read the truth in our energy and body language and react to what they see. They provide instant, honest and accurate feedback in the moment creating experiences which get to the core of issues quickly, powerfully and effectively.
If you want a horse to cooperate and follow, you must demonstrate real leadership.
