I've been noticing lately, when I walk up to one of my horses that are more Right Brain, I see their head turn away. I've always thought "Their just not in the mood to play." But is this always the case? Tonight I answered that question. I started walking up to Spirit, and stoped, and called his name. Spirit started leaving, I thought to myself "Why did he leave? and how can I get him to come back?"
I've noticed when around horses, I tend to have a "high" energy in my core- or a more "driving" type of energy, it's almost uncontrollable.. If you put an extroverted horse in a round pen with me, they get so playful and energetic. They sense my energy----Even tho lowering my energy is very difficult, I tried to lower my energy as much as I could.so as my energy lowered, Spirit turned around, and walked right up to me. Along with the rest of the herd.
So this leads to another thing:
Blaze, always has a high energy under saddle, I always thought it was my tack (Which certainly doesn't help)...But could the actual problem be my very high energy?...Indeed it could! I think next time I ride Blaze, I'm really going to focus on my energy being lower, and see how Blaze reacts to this.
Well this concludes my blog post, I admit I have been terrible keeping up with things lately. Hopefully I can keep everyone posted more often!
