The Language
Quality Horsemanship is a way of cooperation with the horse and creates a win-win situation for both the man and the horse. The human forces the horse into his world and with that in an environment that is not natural for the horse. So we are responsible for the health, security and psychological balance of the horse This responsibility means, of course, one is able﷯ to safely lead the horse, to handle, and drive without any risk to humans or the horse. However, this is only possible if the horse accepts the humans as a capable leader. This leadership is, however, only possible if the horse trust this human. In which we return to the responsibility of the good Horseman. Here we come to the point to which I think, many problems show up. Leadership is often misinterpreted by man. With us humans, leadership is often based on authority. Horse’s way of leadership is based on trust abilities of the leader. If this trust is not met, or even broken, the leadership will be lost. ﷯To correctly handle a horse, it is necessary to understand the language of the horse. Trust Because the horse rarely communicates vocally but mostly using body language, it's important to know how this language looks like. So it is essential to be able to see the horse's language and to correctly interpret it. Educating/training using quality Horsemanship, the horse learns to perform the desired actions without the need to create a "life-threatening" situation for the horse. A horse, just like humans, cannot learn in panic, anxiety or in pain. © Copyright Robert Trösch © Copyright Robert Trösch © Copyright Robert Trösch
