What is Horse Speak?
Horse Speak® is a practical system for “listening” and “talking” to horses in their language, instead of expecting them to comprehend ours. It is based on the gestures, postures, breaths and expressions that horses use to communicate with each other. In Horse Speak we learn to use our bodies in ways that horses recognize and understand.
Horse Speak can be used by anyone who works with horses, whether riding instructor, colt starter, recreational rider, or avid competitor.
With Horse Speak, you can learn to see what your horse is saying and simple replies you can use to tell him that
you “hear” him, you “get it,” and you have ideas you want to share with him, too.
Sharon is a lively and inspiring teacher. As she explains the language of horses and demonstrates Horse Speak with her own herd, your understanding of horses and the horse-human relationship will be changed forever.
