How we look at riding horses
- There is nothing more magical than the relationship between a horse and his rider.
- Horses are flight animals whose safety depends on how fast they can run from threats, real or perceived.
- We prefer not to ride run-aways.
- Hence, we ask the horse not to run away from perceived threats.
- You'll never know what your horse perceives as a threat. Your bright yellow sweater, flapping plastic bags; you just aren't your horse.
- Removing his primary defense, you ask your horse to trust you as the leader who will protect him from danger.
- This is the magic that is the horse-human bond.
