Let the Horse Understand You

Keywords: horse understand, horse senses, horse structure, horse society

It is a known fact that horses do have a certain amount of intelligence and are able to make decisions that concern them. It is this ability that allows the horse to be able to sense what you are trying to get across to them, it is this same intelligence that allows them to make the decision whether to follow what you are asking them to do. The horse is a "flight or fight" animal and that means that they would rather run away than stand and fight, they will stand their ground and fight, but only if there is no other option. And, if you are asking them to do something that they are unsure of, or do not have the trust in you, then most likely they are not going to stay around. The reaction that you will receive comes from what and how you relate to the horse, be it on their back or on the ground. Some people have called it "feel"; I refer to it as "communication". The communication skills that I do refer to can be accomplished by direct contact with the horse or through the use of your body as a communication tool in an indirect or no contact method. MORE>>

Ride A White Horse

The white horse has had a huge impact on human culture across the world. An international team led by researchers at Canterbury University has now identified the mutation causing this spectacular trait and show that all white horses carry the same mutation that can be traced back to a common ancestor that lived thousands of years ago. The study is interesting for medical research since this mutation also increases the risk for melanoma.

The great majority of white horses carry a dominant mutation that results in rapid greying with age. A "Grey" horse is born coloured (black, brown or chestnut) but the greying process starts very early in life -- during its first year. These horses are normally completely white by six to eight years of age but the skin remains pigmented. Thus, the process resembles greying in humans but the process is ultrafast in these horses. The research shows that all grey horses carry exactly the same mutation which must have been inherited from a common ancestor. MORE>>

How to Exchange A Proper Hello With Any Horse

I can't tell you how many times I've seen horse trainers tell their students they've got to act more like a herd leader, but forget even the most basic of requirements for a horse to want to work with you.

Think about it for a moment. Whenever you visit another country, for example, don't you think it's at least polite that you learn some basic things in their language so you don't seem rude? Things like hello, goodbye, please and thank you? MORE>>

I don't own a horse right now but I'm looking into buying an Appaloosa. They're beautiful horses and they have been bred to respond well to riders. The breed was created by the Nez Pierce Indians. The spots are supposed to be magical. They seem to have a lot of personality.
