Train Your Own Horse with Stacy Westfall

Apr 19, 2023

Today, I’m answering a question that came in about my philosophy of ‘earning the right to be in each other's space.”
The caller explains that she understands the concept as it applies to a pushy horse having to earn the right to enter her space. She is curious about how this concept applies to timid or fearful horses. 
Other concepts discussed include:

  • a horse being distracted or not interested is discussed as a separate issue from earning the right to be in each other's space.
  • how curiosity impacts both the pushy and the timid horse
  • the importance of training the emotional state
  • fight/flight/freeze
  • the problem with being sneaky
  • the importance of showing up in the same energy that you would if you were riding a horse you were confident on.
  • timid horses are drawn to powerful energy
