Publisher's Summary

There are silent, yet powerful, ingredients missing from current horse training, riding, and natural horsemanship instruction. In her research of horsemen and women who have a gift with horses, Dr. Susan Fay outlines the invisible things these equestrians do that make their interactions with horses seem effortless. As a research scientist and life-long equestrian, Dr. Fay spent more than two decades searching for scientific explanations for why some people are able to develop seemingly spiritual relationships with horses. She discovered that equestrians with this gift are no different than you or I. They merely know how to use their natural abilities in a way that most of us were never taught. These abilities already exist inside of each one of us, so we merely need understand how to use them. But we also need to be willing to open our eyes and hearts and let go of what we believe is possible.

Within this audiobook, you will gain insights into how you can develop your gift with horses. You will learn how you are unconsciously “talking” to your horse through your mind and body. But more importantly, you will see how easy it is to turn these unconscious conversations into ones that are meaningful to your horse. This is not an audiobook about animal communication. Instead, this is a guide to using the energy field, along with the power of your own mind and body to influence your horse in a gentle and quiet, yet highly effective way. You create mutual respect, while also allowing the horse maintain his or her dignity. When you understand how to physiologically and energetically tell your horse your intentions, and you become conscious and consistent in using these invisible aids, you will notice that your horse becomes a more relaxed, connected, and willing partner.

The principles presented in this audiobook work regardless of the type of horse you have to the discipline you ride. There is no need for special training gadgets because you already have everything you need. Once you begin to implement the principles and see the profound changes in yourself and your horse, you may never view traditional horse-training methods in the same way. Through real life stories and simple exercises, Dr. Fay illustrates the concepts that she teaches to her students in clinics and individual consultations. This is the audiobook that horses wish every equestrian would listen to. That is because it is written from a horse’s perspective. To commune with horses, we need to slow down and become more present and aware. When we can do that, we enter into another dimension with our horse a sacred place.

energy matters

I think this is a grand topic for equestrians to explore. I liked the book.

Shedding the armor

I have always felt conflicted by ‘energy’ work, both repelled and yet drawn to it. Recently I heard Dr. Fay on Warwick Schillers podcast. I appreciated her authenticity and vulnerability. This book feels like a game changer to me. I listened to it on my morning walks last week and will listen to it again this week. I meditate regularly and ‘attempt’ to be mindful and present. Dr. Fay’s calm voice, easy to understand (without being simplistic) teachings shifted ‘something’ in my heart. My horses noticed it as well.

Absolutely perfect start to finish

This book filled in a lot of questions I have been having and is applicable to all of life.
I used mental imagery yesterday with my horse and it worked!
Will definitely be listening to this book again and reading the physical copy as well.

it even works with a skunk

I haven't fully finished the book, it's so soothing to listen to that I've fallen asleep while listening. but that's ok.

tonight I used the space and visualization, and it work...on a skunk. little stinker was in my horses stall, hunkered down in the corner, butt facing out and tail up. I had my muck shovel with an old rain sheet, to catch any spray...then I thought in pictures. how he could walk to his left and out the door...I stepped back and to my left opening the way. kept the picture in my mind...and sure enough. off he went. now I consider myself a skunk whisperer. jk. but it really is amazing how it worked!

Inspiring

I’ve been looking for a better understanding of the inexplainable horse/person connections. Here is the science to back it up.

It’s the book I needed at the time.

Very good book. Confirms so many things and ways to look at horses and life in general. I’ve recommended it to people who I thought were in the right mind set to hear it.

I want to be my horse’s human of a lifetime!

This is my new mantra!
I loved this book so much I have it in hard copy (full of notes), on my kindle (full of highlights) and now having patiently waited I have the audiobook!

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Susan Fey for being brave enough to bring her work to us… that can’t have been easy, but you have changed so many people’s lives and relationships with their horse partners already, I’m sure the numbers will only grow!

Thank you also from all the horses who have benefitted through you sharing your amazing work 💖
