Basic Body Language for Horses

You may have noticed that some people just seem to have a “presence” around horses that makes them very effective both on the ground and in the saddle. While it is true that confidence and experience play a big role, a lot of these people’s effectiveness has to do simply with their non-verbal communication. Non-verbal communication does not just involve body language, it also encompasses the use of personal space, touch, emotional energy, and eye contact. However, body language is a big part of this form of communication and most conversations around non-verbal communication start with body language.

Horses do almost all of their communication through non-verbal means. They say a lot in how they stand, the tension in their bodies, and how they move around other horses and around us.

In today’s video, we are going to look at how to start using your own body language more effectively when working with your horse. Begin by becoming aware of the signals you are putting off and whether these signals are congruent or sending mixed messages to your horse. Hit play to watch the video below and learn more.
