|HORSE HOLIDAY CONNECTIONS|
Soft Touch Horsemanship The Mind Body Connection
|~~By God's Directions. This is His Program--not ours!~~|
To understand this --you must 'feel it!'TRAIN --a horse? Where do some trainers come from? I observed a well-known 'trainer' from Australia and what I saw was disappointing --not where I come from! What I noticed:
2.) NO THOUGHT shared between horse and TRAINER --only a plan!
3.) DIRECTION --is the plan. Get the horse to do what the trainer wants!
It's like cornering a beast to DIRECT them into a tunnel of behavior.
4.) Distraction FROM any meaningful communication --is the rule!
5.) Reward comes after acceptance of a learned behavior from the horse.
6.) BOSS and worker --is what I see as the only relationship developed..
'Rose at the Barn' --My approach is absolutely different!
1.) I Aim to eliminate fear!
2.) Make a respectful friend without abuse or direction.
3.) Establish fair exchange --meaning mutual respect between horse & human.
4.) Ask for anything from the horse in the way of movement, different things, or behavior from the human.
5.) Establish trust and curiosity!
6.) Start teaching any HOW-TO --for sharing in a behavior between horse & human [--in trust and acceptance]
7.) Praise any well recognized attempt to learn a new behavior --from the human.
8.) Teaching the horse --becomes what they want and expect from this relationship --meaning learning!
9.) With praise, acceptance, and not allowing the horse to become bored --establishes a very rich experience.
10.) When the basics is understood concerning riding and sharing with the horse as in teacher/student, the next thing to do is to show the horse the outside world. That learned trust has already been established.
11.) Give the horse more 'educated experiences' --with trails and wandering --to learn about new objects --that eventually gets boring.
12.) This is when the next phase of riding is needed --with new goals that the horse starts looking forward to.
The horse learns well, and then works to do their best --for whatever you can share together.
Work to create a marvelous relationship and bond between horse & human.
Perhaps THIS --is why I so dislike so many trainer's methods!
Perhaps it is the difference between partners in work relationships --VS
'FRIEND and Shared Spirits'. I think the difference --is Love!
