Life Through the Senses, Behavioral Profiling
"Through the Lens of Herd Dynamics and Sensory Soundness"
When you gain a profound appreciation of who your horse is, you realize a practical understanding of goals befitting of the horse’s nature. Psychological compatibility with physical demand is just as vital for the horses’ ultimate success, and happiness, as is emotional compatibility between horse and rider. Of far more influence than a whimsical anecdote, the horses’ inherent character traits and tendencies, ingredients of behavior, course through every facet of their lives. Whether you are trying to match horse to discipline or horse to human, the behavioral profile must communicate affectively in order to translate ability to talent. Everything the horse was, is and can become, is founded upon who they are, how they process their world and how they are inclined to respond to it. The horse looks upon us through the eyes of emotion, and so to must we allow ourselves the same view. For it is not the horses’ responsibility to understand our nature, it is our responsibility to understand theirs. Knowing your horse, is your first achievable goal. ~Kerry
