Natural Enthusiasm

Many people have horses that will “do their job.” Some people have horses that are “willing to perform”. Rare are the partnerships that engender true natural enthusiasm in the horse — a relationship built solely on the natural joy and enthusiasm that the horse brings to the relationship. Words do not do justice to what it feels like to work/ play/ engage horses on this level. Here are three videos that try to do better.  Caveat– so much of communication with horses depends upon body language.  In these videos, ChoCho is wondering why my body is so stiff, holding up this camera-thing– so I am trying to bridge with verbal cues. The result is FAR FAR less than perfect… but I hope you glean some sense of the joy!
