What a great evening yesterday with the Rimbey Sleigh, Wagon and Saddle Club and Joerg Hannes of www.flowingmanes.ca! We hosted an introduction to Equine Communication for the club. Tango was an attentive audience member and Target fell in love with the visiting filly.
“Equine communication: Horse Insights” is based on the premise that people can enhance their relationships with horses by communicating with them in “horse speak.” Equines communicate all the time with each other about dominance, leadership and friendship, among other things. The gestures that horses use with each other can be understood, learned and used by humans with horses.
It was a fun night! But, we lost the light by 8:30 p.m. even though folks seemed interested in going longer. That’s the problem with autumn here – the days get shorter and shorter, but we still want to be outside with the horses.
