Lessons for horses

I was taking a break before my next mount last Tuesday. It was horse lunch but all was not totally still and quiet.

One of the trainers, a lady I admire very much, was working with one of the Norwegian Fjord horses. It can be hard to tell them apart but I think it was Stetson. She was working with the horse in ‘free’ mode – no halter, no lead rope. She asks and the horse responds. It is a beautiful thing to watch as she develops a relationship with the horse so it does what she asks in this free space.

This relationship is one of those things I miss about my first horse as Secret and I shared this kind of relationship. Still I have horses to be with and that is a very good thing!
