I believe that many horse owners have broken and damaged relationships with their horse!
I see so many horses that are apprehensive and or afraid of their owners, as well as owners who are afraid of or angry with their horses! Knowledge is power and understanding brings knowledge. Watch and read your horse to gain understanding and knowledge. This principal is dear to my heart, that you must learn to read what your horse is saying to you! And although horses can’t speak, they speak volumes through their body language. They tell you what they are feeling with their footfall, their ears, their tail, their mouth, their head position, through the look in their eye. Start riding mindfully and learn to read or discern what your horse is saying. Once you have understanding about what they are communicating, you will have more knowledge as to how you can work on building and restoring that relationship between you and your horse!
