Inter-active communication work, with horses and humans. Why even with horses ? With horses you can always tell if you are authentic or not, they reflect your strengths and weaknesses and send the message back to you promptly. Since horses are always honest and positive, they are well suited for this work. No one can fool a horse.
Horses always know us, even if we wear a mask. In dealing with horses you will quickly learn how you appear to others. Change the horses behavior, soon we know that somewhere, something has changed in us. They adapt to us and let us know if we are incompetent.
We humans use only 10% of verbal communication. Nevertheless, the dimensions of nonverbal intelligence, that the other 90% in modern society, are so grossly underdeveloped that it is hard to comprehend.
The horses are remarkably efficient to recognize the feelings, intentions and perceptions behind our words . Therefore, they are super intelligent! Horses have a sophisticated four-stage system from which we can learn a lot in everyday life . They are the absolute masters in reading body language and are born as feeling-analyst.
You see, we can learn a lot from our horses. They bring us these skills with so much joy and patience!
