I work for a vet and I have a few clients who swear by animal communicators.

Have any of you ever experienced one, or had one speak to your horse?
If so, what were the results, if any?


I am open minded and wouldn't judge anyone, and I am genuinely curious!

Years ago we had one out to the barn for fun. At the time, I was having issues with my guy stopping at little jumps. She told me that he had been ridden in the past with a saddle with a broken tree that hurt him, so he was stopping out of fear of pain. Got a gell pad for him, and it helped immensely. However-when it came to another person's horse....hmmm...the communicator said the horse was mad bc it didn't like the color of its halter.:?

Have another friend who got a problem gelding this past summer....again-had a communicator out mostly for fun. Turns out the horse didn't like his name. His name was changed and he was great. (either that or he learned that my friend was his friend....who knows.)

I have also had friends who have found lost animals using them, which has worked....guess it is all in what you believe. Personally-I don't take it too seriously, even tho I do believe in supernatural stuff.....like ghosts.

I agree that they can be kind of fun, like getting your fortune told or palm read, but I can't say that I believe that they are actually communicating with the horse anymore then someone who is tuned into horses in general. However, I do believe that a lot of "communicators" truly do believe that they are communicating and I am sure will not appreciate my skepticism. I worry that their diagnosis will be taken for fact and the true problem will go untreated. A vet is the best horse communicator that there is, if you cannot figure out what is going on. I would only use a Horse Communicator for entertainment value, not for diagnosing a serious problem.

I wouldn't spend money on one, but if one offered to do it for free, I'd go for it. It would probably be interesting to see what they come up with.

the lady i am riding with now has a mare that she took to one because she was having problems.And i guess the communicator was told by hottie(the mare) that years ago she was in a bad trailer accident. Something had scared her while she was tied inbetween 2 trailers that were way to close together and when she went to pull back she lost her footing and somehow ended up under neath the trailer. From what the lady said hottie kept telling her she thought she was going to die and thats why she is so scared of being tied ot trailers.
Its crazy

I don't need one. I can speak to my horses (dogs and cats) myself. :wink:

There was a thread on this a little while ago - and it got me really interested in the subject. I was recommended this book by another poster on here, which I bought and read and was blown away by. It takes you through the steps towards communicating with animals. One one hand, I felt like a crazy person while I was trying it, on the other hand - some of the results I got were absolutely eerie that I can't fathom any other plausible reason for why I got the answers I did.

I haven't had one out to speak with my horse - although I would LOVE to. I e-mailed one once and she never replied. I also haven't really attempted to hone my communicating "skills" for a while although I do plan to try.

Definitely an interesting subject, and I definitely believe that it can be done. Though I think that there are a LOT of phoneys out there.

I don't know what to expect as i know very little about my mare really so I may not be able to verify some of the things she says. All i know is that she did some driving competitions in her past and was apparently really good and also she has had a few foals and was owned by a man that had her from a foal until he got too old to take care of her and he used her for moving sheep and cattle on a farm. I'm hoping as we have her in a farm environment now that she is going to tell me that she is settled. Would love to know about her ridden career and if she has been used for anything exciting that i maybe could try and return her to.

had the session done

the lady was more or less spot on. She told me that bess was in foal and i hadn't told her this information and it isn't obvious. She said that I wear a blue coat to go visit her - which she couldn't know. She is a little stiff in her neck. Has had a cut on her back leg from a fence but is okay now - she has - she doesn't like being moved around from place to place - also correct. that I talk to her when I'm down - also right. she told me that she likes going to shows and all the excitement ( in her past she has won a lot of driving competition shows) so I am considering showing her in veteran class once we have weaned the foal. On and on she went. Now I'm skeptical of these kind of things but there is no way she could have known them details. would definitely recommend getting one done!
