Horses are amazing, read to find out more
About 200 years ago Daniel Sullivan, a horse trainer became famous for his work by gentling horses that had become vicious from accident or abuse. He would not reveal his methods so some people tried to at least catch a glimpse of him at work. Spies saw Sullivan and assumed he was talking to the horse in some way the horse understood. Then he gained the name, "horse whisperer." Now a horse whisperer is a person who uses tactics based on how horses interact with each other rather than using force. That is how horses have been able to be ridden and not like that forever. So Daniel Sullivan a horse whisperer is known for his work by gentling vicious horses.
Horses are very smart, just ask anyone whose horse has figured out how to get out of her stall! Horses have good-sized brains, but most of their brain power is taken up just by trying to keep four feet in motion. Horses learn bye repetation either by themselves or watching other horses or humans. Horses can sense nearby threats almost all the time. Like if they see there is danger nearby they get spooked and run off. But like humans they have their instincts. But pretty smart.
Its easy to tell if a horse likes you, just follow these simple steps, if a horse runs up to you and whinnies then its easy to tell that he likes you. He may also be calm and not try to kick or bite. If a horse starts moving his hindquarters then back away because he's about to kick at something. When a horse is getting ready to bite he will just stretch out his head and show his big yellow teeth. But horses would usually just do it at other horses, but if a horse did try to kick or bite at you, he would probably have a reason to be doing that, but if you don't do anything mean to a horses a horse won't do anything mean to you.
Horses can sense nearby threats almost all the time. Ever seen how a horse reacts when a fly lands on it? Thats because a horses entire body is a sensitive as your fingernail. A horses hearing is much more keener than its vision. A horse can turn its ears almost all the way around but not in a circle. Since a horses eyes are on the sides of its head they can't see right in front of them or right behind them, that is why you should always approach a horse at its sides or he might think your a predator and hurt you.
Daniel Sullivan thinks that horses should not be taught with force or power. They are living breathing things and how would you feel if you had to get forced around and get hit with a whip 24/7.Well horses should be loved and not tortured. They have hearts and feelings too so we need to treat them with love and kindness.
