To lead with your eyes – We learn the language of horses

Eyes say more than words!  Animals deserve our respect and protection.

This short video was taken during a horse based communication training for kids. While visiting them in their natural habitat, we learned about the natural being of horses, their tremendous perception and the “horse sense”. We got into direct contact with them and practiced leadership exercises using no force at all.
