Connection is so important to make big progress in training. Watch any good animal trainer and you will notice that their trainees are locked in on them most of the time – they have their animal’s full attention and that is what makes their training so effective. Lucky for us, horses want to feel connected! The horse is a herd animal, so he feels more comfortable when he is not alone. Our challenge is to help the horse see us as his companion.

You can do this in a round pen or with a lead rope or lunge line – but it takes consistency in your methods and an awareness of what the horse is really feeling.

This can become a very involved subject, but this video is meant to introduce you to the idea of connection and why it matters!

**and just a side note, the audio gets a little funky towards the end – sorry in advance for the technical difficulties!
