Inside the Human Factor course, we talked a lot about Polyvagal theory in human terms, but it also applies to the horses.
Remember, today before you go out to hang out with your horse again, we’d like you to first do something inside of the practices portion of the Human Factor course – whether you pick Orienting or Breathwork or even meditating – do this before you present yourself to your horse. Then, when you are with your horse, do another – with them. Breathe with them, maybe do the eco-meditation (this is on the Human Factor playlist of the video library) with them. See if getting yourself into a different state first influences your horse in any way.
This is where you are invited to just bring your curiosity in, no judgment or expectation, just curiosity if showing up in a different way has any affect on your horse.
