I chat to my horse all the time when I get a chance to be around him. I know he doesn't get a word of what I am saying but the tone I use seems to soothe him and it helps me too. It fills that empty air...
I used to talk Brandi up before a run when I did barrels, It got me amped up and in turn amped her up too. I will admit too that I used to get excited during runs and start talking to her, rather loudly never mean like just "come on baby" "Go,Go,Go"... stuff like that.(all in my naivete, before I became a little more educated on proper care of a barrel horse...)
I have calmed down a lot as I've grown up and stopped the yelling and learned to keep her calm before a run rather than getting her hot, but I still coo to them...
