I will clarify that I do not have the luxury of owning my own property.  I board my horse.  I chose the place I chose, because it allows my horse to have YEAR ROUND turnout and also be allowed to have a little herd in each pasture (in general be a horse not locked in a cage all day) and also has the amenities that are comfortable for me in our NW weather... Also, while an actual round-pen would be wonderful, I don't think the barn owner would appreciate me chopping up his forest or building things as I see fit  ;).  I COULD try to make one out of jump standards and line or even poles on the ground... that could be interesting but maybe not necc. being that she pretty well stays in a 50' circle around me without any line  (thank you for that idea though).

There is a very good chance that my energy is not neutral consistently, and I'm not sure that is what is always appropriate... shouldn't our  energy change to match what you/horse are doing together?  I am trying to work on that.  Giving her a neutral place is a good idea... She will now get on the pedestal on her own (with me there) but I don't know if she connects it to a neutral place... so maybe a square on the ground out of poles?  and would I just ignore her to get the "neutralness" across to her?  Then work her outside of it?  If I cannot call her (birdie) to me, then I do not feel I can guide it to another place quite yet.  I really do spend a bit of time just "being" with her... in the pasture, just reading and waiting for her to come say hi (which she will do sometimes), in her stall just being there if she wants to come in, massaging her, stretching her until she's asleep after a good work out... but specifically would like to be able to call her in, in the way that is deep, like Dr. Deb is trying to get me to understand.

Basically my sense is that she in general is a little turned off by humans. We have come along in leaps and bounds with trust, sourness, anxiety, etc in the time we've been together... I understand what Dr. Deb is conveying to me, it is way simpler (in my head/heart) to grasp.  Learning to control my own birdie and energy and pressure is def. a challenge.  My horse has taught/shown me many things about myself in this last several months (a lot about my pressure, timing and even my own attitude)... Thank you very much for your input, I hope that it doesn't sound ungracious of me, but, I think I will give Dr. Debs advise a thorough go before I try anything else...

Great, Lil, thank you so much for bringing this old thread back up.

As I said in the announcement thread about "What you want for Christmas," I am responding to the suggestion made by many people to do a compilation/book of our favorite or most helpful and useful Forum threads.

If everyone would do as Lil here has done, and simply reply to your favorite old thread -- that brings the thread back to the top, making it easy for me to compile them -- because after all I want to know which threads you have liked best. But it also brings it back into view, which is a good thing in and of itself.

Thanks for the help, people -- this should be a real fun project and one that's do-able within a reasonably short period of time. Cheers -- Dr. Deb

Sarah, when working in the rp, do you walk in a big enough circle?

There are two major things that a horseman or livestock owner needs to understand and those two things are entrainment and murmuration and they are equally important. These are characteristics of most animals that live in groups such as herds, flocks and schools etc.

Walking around in a big enough circle makes the animal feel as though you could be a herd of two if you measure up and don`t blow it by triggering the animals self preservation. (not too close and not too far away) Your position to the horse is important to how he feels about you and it can vary, you will get a feel for this distance with each horse, as they are individuals. As you step in a rhythm, this means something to a horse too because horses are rhythmic creatures. Think of the sequence of the footfalls at each gait and how that sounds. Rhythm = relaxation, so try to be regular in a natural way. Horses are very conscious of this. Watch his ears and see if he cocks one to you, if he does then you know he is becoming aware of you and he thinks that you might be of interest. If you are of interest to him, he might be attentive enough to notice when you round your shoulders and turn your eyes away from him at the right moment.

Think of Tom Dorrance saying, "you need to get with your horse so he can get with you"; blending in. Also Tom`s words ring true, "a person needs to experiment."

Thank you for asking. In Dec. I had to put my 39 year old Arabian down. Sad as you know, as you have done it too, when you finally have to say goodbye, but he had a great long life.

Fortunately my life is mostly spent outdoors so my contact with people has been limited to a few friends.
I have been busy using the micro current across the spectrum of equine breeds, ages and ailments and all I can say is, it`s been very rewarding seeing these animals become whole again and not be discarded. Because of doing the micro current treatments I have learned so much about how animals communicate through feel. They are so much more sensitive than humans. I think I have become a much more aware horseperson as a result. Amazing how subtle they are. We miss so much. I am still learning and refining that skill and hope to until the Lord takes me home.

Id like this opportunity to recite something that jumped out at me from Job.

Job 12: 7-12
But ask the beasts and they shall teach thee, and the fowls of the air, they shall tell thee.
Or the plants of the earth and they will teach thee, and the fish of the sea will declare to thee.

When I was able to hold class with some of my students I would show a video of a large flock of starlings,all changing direction together within a half of a second and a school of fish doing the same. Then I would show a herd of wild mustangs galloping out on the plains doing the same thing.

The bird in the very back tip of the flock can feel what the bird in the front of the flock is doing within half of a second. How would that be without a thread of energy connecting every bird in that flock? The same Feel goes on in schools of fish and horses in a herd. I know that this is true by the way the horses in a herd act when we are treating ONE with the micro current. They usually come closer and all start licking and chewing and yawning and relaxing even though there may be a pretty long distance between them and it isn`t sight that is causing it. They are FEELING the current of energy. What we and they have in common is our bodies are electric.

It also has been proven that one of the reasons horses are such good therapy to humans is that they lower our pulse. A persons resting pulse is much higher that a horses but when we are near them, our pulses want to entrain, resulting in the humans pulse going down to match the horses. There is an interesting video on youtube of a large number of metronomes, set at different times. If you watch a few minutes, all the metronomes are synchronizing. This is a fact of nature and its called entrainment. THAT is what I am trying to accomplish when I am around horses and when I ride, I want to get with my horse so my horse can get with me and "us feeling of each other".

I hope you are well and continue to keep doing what you are doing. I have directed so many people to this website and your Knowledge Base. Thank you.
