My horse and I are partners. She is a pet in the sense that she is a treasured member of the family. She is with me for the rest of her life. I follow natural horsemanship (it's just a word). Natural horsemanship is all about understanding the horse's natural instincts, natural fears, natural social behavior. While we are taught to be the leader we are never dominant. Leadership is necessary for safety and learning to move together as a team. She learns to trust me and I learn to trust her. It's a very spiritual connection. This is a photo from a Clinton Anderson training class. I think she had more fun than I did.
We are partners. In the herd, there is always a dominant mare and stallion. She never does anything she doesn't want to do. The training class btw was to train me not her.
