Opening the Communication Lines between Horse and Human

Share Article

Professional Equestrian trainer and instructor Ms. de Wey shares what to expect from a relationship with a horse and offers solutions to strengthen their compatibility.

The sport of involvement with horses is a multi billion dollar industry and has been exploited to great extent with untruths that need clarification through fact, not fiction. Having spent the majority of her life with horses as well as wild animals, and in many directly related fields, author Shan de Wey explains that horses and humans are not naturally compatible but can be through the study of the psyche of both. In her observations through teaching, she finds so many riders lacking a solid connection to the animal they seemingly wish to be in concert with. She opens the lines of communication between humans and horses through her book, “Horses And Humans-The Real Connection.”

Throughout the pages, the author states that what makes humans and horses attracted to one another is their mutual need for freedom. Most of this compatibility comes from the horse’s flexibility to join with humans as partners. This material prompts the human to evaluate the reasons why he has chosen horses as companions or athletic partners or why he has chosen to breed them. “This book is written in the hope that the knowledge I have acquired these many years will be helpful to create new lines of communication with our chosen equine partners, the horse,” the author shares.

With more than ten eye-opening chapters, “Horses And Humans-The Real Connection” is not a training manual, but opens up unusual and unique approaches to understand the differences between the “two-legged” and the “four legged”. It discusses the choice of a horse, the horse and its psyche, humans and their psyche, diagnostics and therapies, the art of lunging, classic principles of all types of riding, equipment, and more. Many myths are dispelled and the use of “imprinting” explained.

The book is written for both experienced and in-experienced riders as well as many self proclaimed “trainers” who seem to lack the fundamentals of understanding people and horses as a team; particularly the psychological and physical connections that need to be established and understood.
