How a Horse Reads You

July 12, 2021 8 Comments

Horses read your body language, not your tools. I often ask people this trick question: When you're riding, and you squeeze or kick with your legs, what should your horse do?

People always answer the same... "Your horse should go when you squeeze."

I always interrupt and say, "Remember... it's a trick question. The real answer is, your horse should do nothing. That is, unless you want them to."

Your horse should not respond to your tools, they should respond to you. In this video you'll see how you can teach your horse on the ground to read you. Thanks for watching and comment below. 

Share and comment below. I love hearing from you. It helps me know I'm supporting you on your life journey with horses.

Thanks for the video, this way I learn better. Reading instruction is great but the demo is double the experience.
And yes I finally bought your book and will always be learning.

Great video. It makes sense. How do I learn to turn the energy off under saddle?

Such a good video, Don. You’re a very clear and effective teacher. Of humans and of horses. Thank you. I’ll be sharing with a few folks I know who could learn from this!

This was very informative. I thought I understood this before but you have made it so much clearer. Thank you.
By the way, what kind of boots do you have on him?
