Horses and humans have co-evolved and the horse holds a unique space in the human world.

We ask much of our equine companions, be they sports partners, leisure companions, or working animals.

Our relationship with the horse has changed a great deal as time has changed our experience and use of them. We live in a “quick fix” technological age and many feel that our understanding of horses has been lost.

Change and time have also brought about a renewal of awareness of the differences of the equine mind. This can help us in our work with horses.

We now understand that horses will often be telling us in tiny subtle ways that they either don’t understand something, or that it hurts, or that they are fearful.
We bring them into the world. We impose our wishes upon them, surely it is our responsibility to ensure that they have kind and fair life with us.
