Learn the importance of your body language in relation to the “manners” exhibited by your horse. The subtle signals you send are constantly read by your horse, from the first moment he sees you, and many unwanted behaviors can be completely eliminated through an awareness of how horses communicate. As with each other, they rely completely on your body language for cues. Are you exhibiting “rude” behavior in horse language? If so, then you may be getting back an appropriate, although unwanted, response from your horse.
