A Heart’s Journey through Intentional Communication

Learn to communicate more clearly with your horse

All solid relationships hinge on good communication.  You cannot have a positive impact on your horse until you have built an understandable language between horse and human.  Clear communication is the key to building an empowered partnership in which you work together with trust, harmony, and understanding.

“A must read for anyone seeking healing within themselves and to learn more about improving their understanding of the relationship with the horse.”
– A Soulful Horsemanship Reader
