Changing the HOW of Horse Training for the BETTER!

Missy provided horses for the Lorne Michaels Movie “Brother Nature” with SNL star Bobby Moynihan

To the skeptics of the gentle horse training movement I ask “would you get your teeth worked on by your grandfather’s dentist”, and naturally the answer is a resounding “NO”.  “Well why not” I’d ask only to hear familiar answers “those days were barbaric” or “research & technology have improved, we know so much more now”.  So why not make the same argument with respect to horse training?  Why would we continue on a path that is obsolete and no longer serves our humane sensibilities?  The use of whips, spurs, force and pain are unnecessary in the face of ongoing research and study of equine behavior.  We now understand that horses are genetically wired to require a herd leader at all times, even in a herd of two, you and your horse.  When using a horse’s genetic wiring to communicate there is no need for force, pain and devices to train and control a horse.

Even the bit is no longer needed when you are working with a horse’s natural instinct!  However, when bitless riding is discussed the most common fear expressed by horse owners is “my horse will run away if I take the bit out their mouth”.  To that fear my response is “you might want to re-evaluate your relationship with your horse”.  When your horse instinctively recognizes YOU as their herd leader their natural response is to not leave your side.  If you teach your horse about their emergency handbrake making it the safe and loving place you go when you two are in trouble, it doesn’t take force or pain to stop your horse.

Learn how to invoke your horse’s natural instinct to recognize YOU as their herd leader by watching FREE my Training the Whole Horse® video series and ALL 29 episodes of Gentle Horse Training with Starting Under Saddle.   Also enjoy over 140 videos of gentle horse training and virtual extreme bitless trail rides on my YouTube Channel WholisticHorsewoman.

To Ride or Play or What About Dancing?

Dancing with Benny

I just play a lot and dance with my horses. I love it when they kick up, spin around and run – I laugh my ass off and clap my hands in joy as we play.

One day a boarder was out running her horse around the arena at-liberty which I noticed she was all serious with no smile or joy in her countenance.  I clapped my hands and “woo hooed” as her mare kicked up and really cut loose sensing her horse’s joy. The boarder however continued running her mare around the arena trying to get her to join with her, but the mare didn’t want anything to do with her.  So, I gently stopped the gal and suggested she have fun with her horse.  I pointed out how I clapped and woo hooed and laughed recognizing the joy in her horse.

To my relief the boarder received my suggestion graciously and realized she was projecting a negative, forceful countenance that was not conducive to a friendly relationship.  She immediately changed her countenance to a more joyful energy towards her horse and suddenly the mare dropped her head, walked up and buried her nose in the woman’s chest.  The woman looked at me jaw dropped with tears in her eyes as I said “she just wants to be loved and have fun, not having you mad at her making her work work work”.  It was an amazing ah ha for the woman.

If I could teach one thing, it would be to “have fun, stop trying to make a trophy out of your horse and draw out the pet that was the initial motivator in buying a horse in the first place” right?

Wishing you great joy with your horse(s).  For more information visit www.MissyWryn.com or contact Info@MissyWryn.com (888) 406-7689

Horse Communication – Beyond Action & Words

Horse Body Check

I think we can all agree that communication between one another, human to human is complicated right?  Now add inter-species communication, human to horse, we quickly discover our good intentions are not enough to be safe around a 1,000+ lb horse.  The range of communication we receive from a horse can be the white-eyed look of panic to talk to the butt.  I hear frequently from horse owners “I love my horse but she just walks away from me” or “I can’t catch my horse”.  So how do we communicate with our horses in an effective way?  How do we maintain our patience while controlling our frustration when our horse seems to care less that we love them, or responds in dangerous ways when we only want the best for them?

There is a myriad of training techniques that can provide you some answers to these basic issues, but there is also a form of communication that you can add to your toolbox of techniques that will strengthen your communication with your horse.  So let me ask you, are you aware that scientists have determined that our brains are like a radio receiver and transmitter?  Research has discovered that our brains have a neurotransmitter energy transmission range of about 10’ from our bodies, receiving and sending a vibratory energy frequency (VEF).  This is why we can often finish the sentence of a loved one, or they say what we were just thinking – we are sharing our neurotransmitter energy field with them and are on the same vibratory frequency.  But check this out – the neurotransmitters that are in our brains sending and receiving the virtual energy field (VEF) is not limited to the brain in our heads!  Every organ in our body has neurotransmitters, and that includes our skin as the largest organ of our bodies – it’s like a brain in each of our organs.  Just think about it, if we can communicate through our brain’s VEF, which is kind of like telepathy, imagine how we can communicate using our entire body’s VEF?  So to put it into terms of horses, who have neurotransmitters in their organs too and they are large animals, the question begs what is your body saying to your horse on a VEF level and how can we use this transmission to improve our communications with our horses?

Horses need to trust us in order to be safer and calm around us right?  For example, say you are working with your horse perhaps demonstrating your herd leadership, but your body is sending a message of worry, anxiety, or fear – how does your body line up with your intention of teaching your horse that you are their herd leader?  The answer is Authenticity!!  Being authentic, being honest, while aligning your intention is the magical combination for deeper communication and trust between you and your horse.  This goes for humans too – you know that feeling when you meet someone who you feel you can’t trust, but can’t put your finger on why?  Well that’s because your body is receiving the message that the person’s intention is not aligned with who they really are (authenticity), they are incongruent.  Imagine how that must be for horses…..  We may be feeling “off”, worried about our job or relationship with someone, but we “stuff it” and go work with our horses.  We expect them to respond to our training gestures and commands, but they seem “off” and not responding as we wish.  What is your body saying vs. your gestures and commands?  If you are out of alignment with your intention vs what is really go on in your life, your virtual energy field (VEF) is going to reflect that.  Your horse is feeling you are inauthentic, incongruent, so now you are untrustworthy, and what does a horse do when they can’t trust a human – all sorts of unexpected or dangerous behaviors.

Horses require authenticity in their leaders and as you know you do to.  So how do we align our intention with what is really going on within ourselves (authentic self)?  The answer is honesty and awareness, plain and simple.  Be honest with yourself and check in with your body to see what you are really feeling and what your VEF is transmitting.  For example, when I’m struggling with an issue that is non-horse related I recognize that this is going to reflect when I go to work with my horse.  I also recognize my horse is genetically wired to require a herd leader at all times, but I want to be the compassionate herd leader nonetheless, so that requires me being honest about how I feel.  Being honest with your horse is to actually verbalize what is going on with you – you’d be amazed what a relief you will feel once you verbalize your troubles to your horse and often this will invoke a sigh from your horse.  Our words have a virtual energy field too which is why I encourage using your words when with your horse.  Tell the truth about how you feel and what is going on, give it a try and experience for yourself the deeper rapport and improved communication with your horse.

Authenticity – Alignment – Intention – Magic is what you will discover when realizing there are greater components of communication besides our words and body language, that there is a vibratory energy frequency (VEF) that is communicating too.
