Whether you’ve had your horse for a long time or they are new to you, Creating Connection by Hanging Out is a good place to start. Think of it like making friends. You will spend time with them without asking or expecting anything from them.
Depending on your horse’s living situation, this might look like: poo picking, reading a book or listening to a podcast whilst sitting (either inside or outside where they live) – depending on the type of horse you now know you have (day 2), you might stand, you might meditate, or journal. There are a lot of ways to create connection just by hanging out with your horse and this is a good starting place.
As with every step along this journey, you will need to use your discretion.
– Pick the best time to do this, if your horse needs to get his energy out and runs around a lot, of course you would not want to be in there with him.
– You know whether you could do this while your horse has food or other horses around, you will need to decide these things as well.
– There are probably several other factors that you may need to consider, that Warwick cannot anticipate, so you will have to use your discretion.
