My family instilled in me that dogs learn fast, horses can too, and most animals seem to learn faster than humans. It was this idea that caused me when I was a child to understand that I needed to develop my ability to learn from horses so I could be on par with them.

Previously I was talking about horsemanship, trust and connection, which led me to ask the question about what you would like your partner to be like. Now the reason I asked this was, and this is going to sound a bit out of place, but a horse wants to be treated like a woman wants to be treated.

This is from a lady called Jan, who wrote: I have an off-track thoroughbred (OTTB) who is extremely intelligent and overreactive, has had many bad habits from racing and is easily bored. He also resents being told what to do so I really work to find what he likes to do best. He has had foot problems for the past three years but is now sound. We have been through a lot together and he really trusts me but he does not always listen. I still have trouble keeping his attention all the time. And any time he does not want to do something that he thinks is boring, he throws a huge fit!

I’d like to talk to you about the rules that horses have with each other. This is extremely important to grasp not just because for me, it is the foundation of what I do, but because it is the foundation for all horse interactions.

In this day and age it’s great to take advantage of the ability we have to share YouTube videos with each other. It is a wonderful tool I can use to guide you in how the connection looks, how to lead a horse through the Waterhole Rituals and what the result looks like. It is also very nice to have the support of my students sharing their perfect connection with their horses.

This article is for those people who enjoy increasing their connection, performance and horsemanship from the direct experiences they share with their horses. If you don’t have a good relationship with your horse, all you need to do is change your viewpoint, step back and start at the beginning.

Here is an exciting YouTube video clip by Robin Gates, a certified coach in my Method and student over many years. I am highlighting this clip because it shows the results of building a partnership from the ground using the Waterhole Rituals™ and how effective it is with warmblood horses to develop trust and a working bond.

Connection is a two way street. To truly get along with a horse in shared partnership we need to have social leadership skills. If we can keep adjusting our leadership style to be more flexible, understanding and intelligent, the horse is more willing to form a loyal partnership and put greater effort into his performance. It’s all about being present in the moment and fully awake and knowing exactly what to ask a horse to do that starts the dance, backed up with the belief that your horse will perform and then letting the horse perform without holding him to it.
