Have you ever thought about being able to communicate with a horse as immediately as you do with your friends?
Have you ever wondered about what really happens when horses and humans beings meet?
Consider the possibility of a new approach to the old topic of horsemanship. This approach is for horse owners, riders, breeders, amateurs and professionals, or just anyone who is interested in horses. Come and learn about how horses live, think, learn, communicate and play, from their point of view, a dimension still widely unexplored in horsemanship.
The purpose is to build a solid foundation for the relationship between human and horse, and put it in practice in any situation on the ground or in the saddle, with and without tack.
HH Sensing teaches the roots of equine behavior, their social relationships and how to communicate with horses by choosing the most appropriate action, sense and context that horses understand. Going through spontaneous interactions rather than through trained behavior makes it possible to establish an immediate and always effective connection to the horse.
Traditionally, the interaction between man and horse happens through training by conditioning horses to respond to certain stimuli. In reality, for the possibilities of the behavioral response, the trained actions still coexist with instincts, experience, and emotions, components that can be difficult to control when the horse does not comply with our request.
Human Horse Sensing is a system for horsemanship based on a dynamic dialogue by behavior that gives us away to always manage the relationship, and not be limited by the stiff boundaries of training.
The relationship between human and horse, both naturally social species, is considered as a spontaneous event where the communication with the horse is purposefully modulated through movement considering the sense through which it is received, and can be applied in any equestrian discipline on the ground (through sight, hearing and touch) and in the saddle (through touch and hearing).
The horse has a basic instinctual response to movement, by going away from approaching things, and moving in the direction of things that interest him and are moving away. In the interaction with a horse if we receive the response we were seeking, our communication was appropriate, if we get a different response, we reformulate the request, leaving out punishing a noncompliant horse that would end up trying to avoid us. We do not use force and fear because they can trigger a dangerous response through the horse’s survival instincts.
Through experimenting with this kind of relationship we have formulated some parameters that we monitor, and modulate by movement, that are naturally common between human and horse because of a social meaning connected to instinctual behavior.
Human Horse Sensing Horsemanship builds a dynamic social relationship, that can be modulated in real time, where we give our actions a form that horses understand and want to participate, instead of being forced, because they are scared or inconvenienced. As a result, when horses experience a pleasant interaction they seek time with humans, even when it involves the practice of an equestrian discipline.
