Horse Talk, literally

So, after much deliberation, I have decided to have a communicator come to us on Sunday and see if she can help us sort through some issues....not to mention, I've always wondered what my boy had to say about his life with me in general...I'm hoping he'll be talkative!! I am excited about finding out if/when/where his pain exists, and how I can help him be comfortable. If he likes being a lesson horse, likes to show, likes to trail ride...I want to know what he's afraid of (he is SO brave!), what makes him sad, what things I can do to make him happy. What a wonderful opportunity this is! Some client horses are going to be involved, as well, and I'm looking forward to receiving feedback and input from them, as well. Dancer is a nice filly that I've been working with since she was 6 months old...she is 4 this year. I'm curious to know what her opinions/thoughts are. And, Toi, of course...he will for sure have something to say. He is the boisterous one of the whole bunch. This will be enlightening and hopefully really fun!

Have any of you done this before? What were your experiences (if you don't mind sharing..) and were you a cynic before you did it? If you're not comfortable posting here, you can email me privately at I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. I just recently found your blog but you've hooked me -- I've been thinking about doing this too. My boy is 4 1/2, and my husband and I rescued him from a traumatic situation when he was just 11 months old. I have always wondered how well he remembers it and how it affected him, and how he likes his life with me. He is very demonstrative and very bonded to me, so I think it would be interesting. I'm skeptical, though, too, and I have no idea how to make sure I find a "real" communicator, and not just someone who is going to blow smoke up my butt. Looking forward to hearing about your experiences!
