Lucinda B’s “Being Herd” Clinic- Snohomish, WA

July 28, 2023 - July 29, 2023

“Being Herd” is “Seeing vs. Looking” and “Feeling Heard” using Horse Speak® and the Equine Mandala. Once learned, you can accomplish great things with your horse. In addition, this supportive information can be used with, and enhances, any discipline.​

It can seem like “Sharing Space” and “Getting Things Done” are 2 different things. One minute we are loving on them and the next we are asking them to do something. The secret is in how we engage in the “asking”.

Fortunately, horses don’t mind, and even seem to enjoy, working and living amongst us as long as they can find safety and resources. What scares them is when they feel alone or don’t understand what is being asked of them. The bottom line is they have a biological need to feel safe. When we offer them consistent, clear support, they immediately begin to consider the human to be part of the herd- even if it’s just the two of you.

The intent behind your actions in “Being Herd” is immediately recognized by the horse as authentic.

This can be learned.

Horses never daydream. They’re always scanning for danger. When they see you participate in this scanning, you become an asset to their herd and they feel safer. Humans daydream constantly- it’s hard not to. When you become distracted and break the “Low Connection” they count on for stability of the herd, they get confused and worried. Maintaining this connection is how brilliant horse people make it look effortless to perform at very high levels.

By practicing “holding your concentration”, “strengthening your motor skills” and offering “Clarity of the Ask”, you will soon experience being in alignment, and in connection, with your horse. Once you feel this, you will have agency to accomplish any task you choose.
