Linking With Your Horse’s Body Through Touch & Energy

I invite the herd to go into the back 20 acres at dusk – just before the coyote pack gets active. Audelina comes along, but doesn’t think that’s a good idea! And guess what happens…? Let’s take another journey into animal communication – through body language, energy, and thought packages.

Aude is such a clear communicator – watch her eyes, her breath, notice tension points in her body. Compare her body signals to Montaro – notice the differences. Montaro has so much more safety in his body/psyche. Even though Aude is the biggest, strongest horse, she does not have the confidence and personal power that Montaro does.

Watching, perceiving, being with the horses in this way is one of my favorite things. I learn so much, every time. The rest of the herd would not even cross the creek with us at this time of day. Siyone and Kaliah have only brought their foals back here twice (both times when I was here) during the whole summer/fall. It can be tricky (the wetter, the trickier) for the babies to get down the clay-sloped incline and to cross the creek – and then there’s the coyote issue.

    I’m with Aude. I’ll pass on being out and about at dusk. I once had an encounter at dusk with my horse and a baby cougar and having no idea where its mother was. Since dusk and dawn is their hunting time I’ve moved our exploration times to middle of the day.

      Oooh yes, cougars would be a bit more of a deterrent for me than coyotes!

    Very cool Jini
    Closed in areas can definitely be tricky for horses. Is aude the herd look out? I’ve often perceived there’s one in a herd that is more nervous and more alert to possible danger.
    I was thinking made it here in there while she was near the path at all it would’ve taken was a clock on your part and some energy from your solar plexus and she probably would’ve taken off home LOL. Sometimes the potentiality and horses is tempting for humans. I’m certainly not saying that would’ve been the right thing to do as it may have for their charge the situation and in future visits to the clearing. But I admit I’ve certainly done at myself in the past LOL

      I hear you. In most situations, I try not to influence their behaviour, but to enjoy simply observing what IS. And of course, I am a part of that – but in situations like that, I too am watching Montaro. I also would not have gone back there without the dogs!! And not just any dogs, but Tiah has held a cougar off my daughter and I in the woods, so she can command a lot of power when needed. The rest of the time, she’s just the sweetest thing 🙂
