"its never too late"

I started to post this in one of my threads but no one was responding so I decided to just start a new one here. =]

I have had my horse for three yrs now and I love him more than anything! I wouldnt trade him for anything in the world! Sometimes when I hear about parelli or other bonding stuff I feel like I missed out in a way. Most ppl do this when they first get their horse but when I first got my boy I didnt know about this. Do you think the expression "its never too late" applys here? I think that "hey if you wanna do something go for it!" fits nicely here lol! This is kind of a personal opinion but I was just wondering what you guys thought. Ppl always say how there horse greets them at the fence, nickers, follows them etc. my horse doesnt exactly do any of this, but I don't really think that means we don't have a good bond. When he sees me he watches me approach with his big beautiful blue eyes and pricked ears, he always has a welcoming expression. I never do anything to put him in danger unless it was something I had no idea what I was doing wrong, and im always sweet to him. In fact I get nagged about being TOO nice! I don't get to go out to the barn everyday like some of you lucky ducks, but I try to go as much as possible. I trust my horse 100% and love him with all my heart...i just don't know if he feels the same way about me. Of course I know you can't give me the answer to this question but im just getting my thoughts out in front of me. Answer the questions you can and encouraging words are ALWAYS welcomed! Thanks in advance! Wow I just realized how long and deep this is lol! =]

It's NEVER too late to do something new, to expand your knowledge or to get a better relationship with your horse. I love Pat Parelli's saying, "Go out of your way to shake hands with opportunity."

What's time to a horse? She doesn't know 3 years from 3 days. Do what you have a desire to do but keep in mind some horses seek human companionship and some horses tolerate it.

Very true^ but how can you tell?

From the horse's expression. If he comes when called or looks at you like "Oh man, here we go again." For a horse that tolorates human company, it's our job to make them LOVE our company!

I just accept them the way they are. You can't make a horse (or anything else) love you or love to be with you. Don't tolerate any unwanted behavior but I wouldn't try to push myself on the horse.
