I found the training to be a very tangible demonstration of the importance of non-verbal communication. It is interesting to get immediate feedback based on the horse’s response to how you have communicated with them. You know that it is an honest, non-judgemental and natural response because the horse can’t lie. From that perspective it very quickly brings you to an awareness of your own behaviour/communication style. It showed me that I could do with being a bit more directive.
