Flexible Leadership

I like to combine words that inspire thought, inspire creativity, and inspire contribution. That is what I would encourage you to do when you look at your role as your equine leader. When we combine flexibility with leadership we instill the willingness to adjust to meet the situation. If you have too many rules you can expect some resistance. If you don't have boundaries you can expect some confusion. So yes we need to have guidance that leads to what we want, but twists and turns add to the adventure. Finding the flow, where is downstream? I like to start by observing, is the horse naturally curious, reserved, timid, bold, needs to move, sullen, nervous, outgoing, or laid back? Having some of these answers prior to action will prove to be extremely beneficial. Horses are naturally inclined to find an opening that they feel leads them to safely and comfort. I like to be the one that opens that door for them. The door is the release I want to be in charge of that release, please let me take over so I can set you free is what I tell the horse. The next important part for me is learning to follow. After spending some time observing when a desired action or behavior shows up follow it, don't interfere just follow and support. The desired message here is when the horse is doing something you like and approve you will go along with it . I know that sounds too easy going along with what I like and I will get more of it? YES Horses are also masters of reading our energy
