22nd January, 2007

Today I received a questionnaire from a woman who is studying animal behaviour. One of the questions she asked was "Do you think natural horsemanship is beneficial to the rider and handler just as it is with the horse?" My answer was "yes!" - natural horsemanship techniques are helping people with confidence, anger management and a general understanding of how their horse thinks. It also enables them to live with their conscience. This made me think of all the areas in which horses are helping people to understand more about themselves - managers, schoolchildren, offenders and people with mental illness.
