Horses’ brains have been wired to remember the negative/ survival memories.
These survival memories have evolved the need to remember danger, potential danger and to act as a herd when another horse is acting suspiciously.
They don’t always have the same thought patterns as humans, so if we plan to ride them, train them, teach them and teach with them it is in our best interests to understand them as much as possible.
The next time a horse shies, bucks, kicks out or even if one stands on your foot, then try to understand from their point of view what made them do it.
Real horse people don’t blame horses; they only continue to deepen their understanding about them.
