Today's Lesson on Intent

Today was a good reminder on intent. Horses can read your intentions very well. Something about my body language was different today and he instantly saw it.

Miguelito and I have been busy bees. My ornery little pal has had a lesson or ponied a horse for me for 7 days straight. Today I spent the morning and afternoon with him. Just being together with no plans.

Today was a good reminder on intent. Horses can read your intentions very well. Yesterday for instance my intent was to work, again. And as I walked in the pasture to get him I was thinking “I’m sorry buddy, we have to work this morning” He walked away from me. Today I walked in thinking; “Today is for me and you!” And he came to me, followed me out the gate without his halter, disengaged and waited while I shut it and followed me to my tack room. Something about my body language was different and he instantly saw it.

Thanks Miguel for being my most Noble Steed, for always keeping it real and for giving me a miraculous “day off”. (I still worked two horses and had a farrier visit. I swear one of these days I’ll figure this “day off” stuff out.)
