Book Quote

Horses are equal to humans in greatness, both have different strengths…

“Horses learn through repetition, but I don’t think it has to be limited to some basic maneuvers or a handful of patterns. They (horses) are so much more sensitive and intelligent than we are aware of but because we are intelligent in other ways, we may think of them as inferior. The fact is, they are so much more tuned into us because of them being a prey animal than we are tuned into them. There’s a lot of missed opportunity to acknowledge their sensitivity and open lines of communication. They are very capable of acknowledging the slightest gestures we make and responding accordingly and by realizing this sensitivity and directing them to a comfortable place and a favorable place for us. Through repetition in this nature, they can be limitless in their performance.” Martin Black, and Dr Stephen Peters. Evidence Based Horsemanship
