"The more I do this work the more amazed I am at how my horses respond to different folk interacting with them. One of the important things for me is to know the horses I am working with. What may not be unique horse behaviour may well be behaviour unique to a particular horse. I have also learnt to be aware of other causes of the horses' behaviour other than what the client brings: a changed routine; a sick or injured horse not feeling 100%; something that has disrupted the herd dynamic; movement external to the session; or perhaps a change in the facilitators, possibly not being present (a term that has taken me some time to understand). No matter what it is that causes a horse to respond the way it does, the client's interpretation never ceases to amaze me."
