We are responsible for our Horses and their Actions.

1-Hobbling.
2-Whipping.
3-Castrating.
4-Boxing and Stabling.
5-Shoeing.
6-Horse Harnesses.
7-Our Body actions and our Body Language.
8-Even Riding.
9-The actions we take as Punishment.
10- Please feel free to edit this list with the actions which you feel would be considered  violent actions towards a horse.

If you make additions to the list , tell me where do we draw the line and say this is Violence towards this creature?
How and when do we use our intelligence to prevent something which would be considered cruel , aggressive, punishment and violence towards the horse?

What are the Positive and Negative results of these on the Horse?
Does the result of a violent action appear right away; or does it appear in the future or after a longer period of time?

Does the effect of violence have many outcomes, or just a simple one?

An act of violence destroys trust. Without trust, you cannot work as one with your horse.
I Know One Thing:  Any type and amount of violence destroys Trust.
Trust Establishes Trust – as the saying goes.
Trust won’t match the punishment and violence and any other action which is the feeling of the Horse.
Trust with our partner (Horse).
There are other things but to my knowledge this is the most important one.

To be honest and frank I have to become a Horse to answer my post .

The definition must be given by a Horse not by our dictionary , don’t you think so?

But I try my best to become a Horse as much as I can to answer to your posts next time I get on line , as I said in other thread you have to be in the mood for doing something especially things that has something to do with your mind and brain working , Don’t you think so?

If intelligence is rated by qualities such as Memory and Speed of Learning, then the horse must be considered extremely intelligent.  Horse memory often exceeds ours, and his/her speed of learning nearly always exceeds ours.

We have to know the feelings of the Horse about each single thing.

    I totally agree with you!!

  2. Thank you for reading them so carefully Gudrun ,
    It is true ,
    Animals have Senses that it is hard for us to understand and we should never compare them with ours … it would be a great mistake to do that.

  3. I had horses, and it’s true..they are very intelligent! They can sense your mood, or if you are in pain (my husband could not do that)! There are no stupid horses, just stupid humans!!

    • dear Karen ,
      husbands can’t do that i agree … lol
      horses are far more intelligent than we could imagine and yes there are no stupid horses but some are more intelligent than others …. this is a long story which i hope to get into in it’s own time …
      thank you for your wonderful comments and reading our blog ,
      Take Good Care .
