Riding Academy Horses
It is a great honor to care for these magnificent beasts. They have much to teach we humans. In the horse training industry, there is a phrase many folks use called "horse whispering". "Horse listening" may be a more appropriate term. Active listening teaches us to intuit a horse's level of response to an "ask." A horse may really only need just a little pressure when asked to perform a task; and if there is a "try", then the horse is rewarded immediately with a quick release of pressure. This forms mutual trust and respect for each other. Think of it as "less is more." This can be a valuable life-skill for humans and is learned through experiential education using the horse as a teacher.
We are happy to serve these gentle beasts who for centuries served we humans by carrying warriors to battle, plowing fields for agriculture and providing transportation.
