There is something I’ve noticed for a while now and it only happens when a horse is choosing to follow a person’s lead.
We sync up.
The horses front legs get in sync with the person’s legs, often down to the smallest gesture of the foot.
Notice the body language of the people in these images as well.
There is a sense of connection, attention and focus on one another.
Sure, I can watch my horse’s feet and make an effort to match their movement and that can even be comforting to a horse. But there is something special about these moments where it’s happening and you don’t even know it.
I think it means something and it’s worth looking for.
Are you and your horse in sync?
