Re: [RC] Natural Horsemanship - Chris Paus

I think that  also is important.

I give my horse lots of praise and hugs and atta boys.
One time after a ride, another rider caught me giving
Star a big hug for a job well done. He complimented me
on the way I treat my horse and said he wished more
riders would do that.

The horses are my world. they do so much for me
mentally physically and emotionally.I have to tell
them thank you!

Without our 4-legged counselors, I imagine a lot of us
would be checked in to some very expensive mental
health clinic, LOL

That is, to me, the most fundamental aspect of
horse/human relationships, 
and that point of view has been almost always the
last to be even 
considered, if it is considered at all.  Too many
talk the talk but don't 
walk it.  Few humans would even think of thanking a
horse for what it 
offers, such a simple and common courtesy when
you're talking 
respect.  Thanks for your email, Phil.
