Our attraction to the horse is often based upon a romantic image of a noble horse, and us working in seamless partnership. That may be where the dream starts, but there are practicalities of working with horses. These animals speak a different language than we do. We need to understand their language as we develop a safe partnership.
"I met Martha and her thoroughbred Lola at a facility we were both boarding at. I thought, just another equine Canada coach working in the narrow constraints of how Equine Canada liked things done. I was very wrong! Martha constantly looks to
learn from some of the more more sensible and sensitive clinicians around the world, who encourage us to seek connection with our horses, not just ride and train them. Martha has been working with horse Lola to understand what are Lola's stressors and how to mitigate them. Also, Martha lets Lola know that she (Martha) gets "it". Martha's path and mine intercepted on some really similar thoughts on gaining connection and taking the time to listen to our horses, connect with them, and are mindful of their psychological needs from their human partners."
