NH uses principles of practical psychology and communication; but unlike most training programs, the method is aimed at people, not at horses. Horses already have all the skills to relate to their own kind and to the environment: it is the addition of the “human” element to complicate things.
Horse owners who follow NH have discovered that the greatest gift they have received in doing so is that the method improves not only the relationship and communication with their horse but also all other relational aspects of their life.
The NH teaches man to COMMUNICATE to the horse through body language, exploiting specific attitudes that horses use within the herd, we speak of Leadership, as leader we mean a person who gives confidence, who keeps calm in the critical situations and manages, most of the time, to solve them; this is what horses are looking for, since being prey animals they need to feel protected and relaxed, if YOU can give this to your horse IT will rely on you in everything and for everything, because YOU will be his Leader.
