The Key to the Kingdom of Horses is both a moving story of a traumatised wild horse AND a free video lesson designed to introduce people to what makes our gentle and powerful way of working with horses sooo… special.
I was invited to present at an international horse event and needed to do a video to show our work here. So I advertised for a difficult or dangerous horse and a scared owner, trawled my way through dozens of applications and found Joe and Dawn. Joe was literally shaking with terror at EVERYTHING to do with humans and as gentle as Dawn was, she just hadn’t been able to make the breakthrough she was looking for with such a traumatised horse. We got a camera man and traveled 12 hours in one weekend and filmed Dawn and Joe having a lesson with me. It was two short sessions with a long break in between, that added up to just under an hour in total.
The result brings tears to my eyes even now – even after teaching thousands of people how to do this, it still moves me. This terrified and severely traumatised wild horse and his novice owner found the magic of Feel in under an hour. My heart smiles when people and horses find what I call “it”, the magic of connection and communication with a horse, the Feel that every good horse person has, the Feel that makes ALL of us really good with horses, that is inside every single one of us.
When I edited the video down to half an hour, I took the opportunity to explain what I had her doing and turned it into a lesson for YOU too, on Feel for your horse.
