Leadership is not “being in control”.
Leadership is presenting the possibilities of good choices.
Good leaders lead by example.
How does a mare in a herd become a lead mare?
She does it by making intelligent and appropriate decisions by being confident, observant, honest, dependable, vigilant, protective, emotionally balanced and consistent.
If you can do these things, you can BECOME the lead mare in a herd of one or fifty.
Becoming a leader of horses is just like becoming a leader of people, but without ANY scheming or ulterior motive. Pure leadership.
Do you feel like there’s more to horse training that what’s out there? Do you wonder if you have missed something along the way. Like for instance, knowing WHY your horse is acting or reacting the way it does, what it is perceiving differently than you, and why you can’t seem to move ahead?
This is where you need to take the next step, and get the basics of knowing your horse. You can learn how to respond effectively and responsibly with your horse, move past simple obstacles, and discover your unique partnership.

If we don’t think like a horse, don’t walk like one, don’t eat like one, then why would we assume the horse can understand what we are asking of them?
Without a language that both human and horse understands, we remain just interesting creatures to them.
When we ask them to preform a task for the first time there really is no reason to think they understand what we are asking of them, so why would a horse have a clue.
There must be some kind of line of communication. Teach your horse how to communicate with you. Start with learning the Horse’s language, and move on to paragraphs, then essays, and after all that you can write a novel together.
And remember this – horses are not autonomous beings so when you take them away from their heard – for a ride, or grooming, a week, or forever – you have got to be there for them.
We don’t have to be great riders to get along with a horse. All that is required is the will and the way to communicate and have a great relationship.
