AlexS My horse is teaching me. I still maintain we are the predator and sitting on the horse. The horse sences if we mean it harm and acts on the most part accordingly.
I have found my present horse, if I listen to her will tell me subtly at first, if she is anoyed. If I listen to her and back off a little she also settles down. But there is still the alfa mare thing that we are working on.
At times I think my wife and the horses get together, (It's a conspiricy I'm sure) their aim, to see who can boss me around the most.
But you have me worried now, when I walk into the paddock and all three are there, and they all just stare at me. Am I becomming a food item.
