Thank you Chris, and of course Yaz, Fox and Badger (the herd), for what has been a life-changing experience.
You’ve restored my belief if the possibility of a relationship of mutual respect and trust with horses. I’ve witnessed, first-hand, the dance of respect between you – experienced the closeness and connection of a ‘join-up’; have been reintroduced to the true sensitivity and ‘softness’ of the majestic horse responding to the lightest touch and gesture.
There were moments when I was deeply moved emotionally as I saw a new and better way to work with horses – and what is possible in partnership with these beautiful and powerful creatures.
These 2 days have answered some life-long questions and made sense of my longing for something better.
Thanks for your help the other day. With your assistance my horse now remembers where his manners are and behaved impeccably at the vet!
