I'm totally with you.... Another boarder at our barn talks to his horse as well. Hey, it's all about the relationship!
I used to do the same thing when I was young and used to go trail riding by myself after school.
I really think it does have a calming effect on the horses.
I honestly believe that talking to my horse helped him get calmed down quickly for a traiil ride after chasing and driving a runaway horse back into the barn area a while back.
