What horses teach us about our natural capacity for awareness, confidence, courage and trust.
Written by one of the original Horse Whisperers, Horses Don’t Lie is the definitive guide to training horses. Every horse trainer will welcome this method. After years of using his method to train horses Chris came to see that it could also be applied to human behaviour.
The characteristics necessary for building good relationships with horses can be used to deepen our relationships with other people and to enrich our daily lives. Horses can teach us how to communicate with empathy and patience, not only with them but with each other. Humans, like dogs, are natural predators while horses are prey that evolved to band together in packs for protection. This results in two differing types of consciousness and for a human to think like prey teaches many things. It teaches the trust and honesty essential in building relationships, and not only in a relationship with a horse; while the sensitivity and awareness that characterises a horse’s perception of the world are qualities we could all use in our own lives.
The real magic of horse whispering is what horses reveal to us about ourselves when we strive to understand their behaviour. Horses Don’t Lie will teach you about the connections we can make in our lives when we learn from horses.
