A Horse’s Natural Spiritual Conduct:
VS altering the natural horse by ‘human training’.
Watching people work with horses that have been using someone’s techniques --is like using a human’s program. To understand and use that program will work –because the horse has then learned from the human.
In essence that has somewhat ‘altered’ their natural inborn spiritual instincts.
Is that natural or accomplished within the spiritual connections with the horse? Or is it because the human has tried to alter the horse’s spiritual connection --to enable a human desire --of getting something out of the horse’s behavior –as they [the human] desires?
In other words, is the human trying to be the horse’s controlling factor in the relationship –thereby ignoring what the horse knows instinctively? Do they even know what that is really? Have humans ever wanted to learn from the horse –or simply to control them?
Look at how a horse has been started –or ‘broken’ to be a riding horse?
Was it ever taken into consideration –what the horse understands as a natural spiritual being –before demanding they learn that the human is to be in control of them and their behavior, even if it means harsh treatment and/or punishment?
Of course some are not as harsh as others –but do they really understand what the horse knows or is affected by with –their ‘natural spirit’?
What comes first –the chicken or the egg?
Now, if someone with that natural spiritual connection with horses --tries to work with a horse that someone has worked with --for their reasons or purpose –something may not click. --WHY?
Obviously there is a gap in what the horse instinctively knows and understands, versus what the human has tried to: ‘teach’ or ‘train’ or ‘alter’ a horse’s behavior to do or be!
Wouldn’t it be easier in the long run –to learn what the horse naturally responds to, and learning more about the horse --from their inbred spiritual behavior, than implanting ‘another human way of: ‘doing and being’
–just to satisfy the human?
This way everyone would be able to work with any horse since it comes from the base understanding of the natural horse themselves?
What we have now-a-days, are horses that have difficulty connecting with different owners, or trainers because none have even considered the horse’s natural instincts –in the FIRST PLACE!
That’s what we do!
It is always an issue to find what technique a horse has been altered to respect since there are so many ways and things that can be taught to a horse.
I love helping a horse to get back to their own natural instincts. I see the refreshing behavior they express after relaxing to their own naturallness.
