Equine Communication (E/C)

Learning Their Language

How the heck does a person or animal know if another person or animal understood what they just said? The answer is- they look for an appropriate response. 

People who live with horses know they respond to us when we communicate with them using our language. The problem is that we are not sure how much of the communication they understood. Recent research shows us we can learn a bit about their language, and use that information to have conversations that both parties understand. 

There have been many folks that have been working on this process for different species, and each species has their own language rules.  My horse "Nemo" had been frantically asking me to listen to him for years before I "got it". The complete Nemo Story can be found in my book Being Herd.

After years of telling Nemo’s story, I met Sharon Wilsie author of Horse Speak®. Learning her work has been a fascinating ride and I am now pleased to be a Certified Instructor of this amazing new discipline.
