Yesterday’s podcast was titled ‘Challenging Conversations with Your Horse’.
In this video, Jac demonstrates this concept.
At this point I had been working with Jac for 20 minute (see episode 1).

I explain how I interpret the pawing, introducing the stick and string, horse respecting a person’s body space, horse’s emotions, how long to work with a horse, when it is a good time or bad time to stop working with a horse and funky chicken dance moves
