Today, organizations like the Heartmath Institute use these principles and research to help law enforcement, medical professionals, and other high-stress occupations tune into their center and operate clear-mindedly through their fast-paced day to day.
Many of these same principles apply to our horses - and they’re the secret to creating those “Black Stallion” and “horse-whisperer” type relationships with our horses.
-- The relationships where our goals become shared goals.
-- Where our horses are calm and centered - because so are we.
-- And where our horses aren’t “our therapy” - but where we are sources of wellness for each other.
What I came to understand through my research is the scientific basis for how horses and humans communicate - that connection that so often defies words or explanation (especially to non-horse people).
