    I have re-read my response to Claire’s article. It appears to me that Claire’s interest Is primarily that of a human psychologist looking closely as to how a horse can be of help in the treatment of a human. Personally I am interested to view the subject from exactly the opposite perspective – how do we humans use the interplay we have with horses to treat the ‘wayward’ horse? After all if there are some recognised interactions, as I believe there are, then the therapy must travel two ways – ie there and back.
    Most of us on this forum know how horses can fill a gap in a human’s life and each of us chooses to own a horse for ‘personal’ reasons. We don’t pay out significant sums of money on a weekly basis nor do we allocate hours from every day for no personal benefit. We humans seek amongst other ‘rewards’: companionship, need, perceived affection, achievement , adrenaline, etc, etc.
    But if we humans are to further consider exactly what might be available to us, then first we have to acknowledge that the brain of a horse allows a greater degree of intelligence than many of us are prepared to consider.
    Claire has declared her agenda . I repeat my earlier question, how can we work with her whilst she looks at the human’s perspective and we look at the subject from the horse’s perspective?
    If you get my drift.
