“The horse responds to comfort, they respond to peace better than about anything else you could do. All he wants you to do is just leave him alone. So if the horse responds to you and you give him a little peace and comfort that means more to him than anything.” – Buck Brannaman
In my work with horses, comfort and safety are to two most important things to a horse. These two things are far more important than food in their world.
The more we realize we are different than the horse, the more we can adjust to meet horses where they are and help them along.
After all, could we use peace, comfort and safety too??
