Horsemanship And Confidence Versus Arrogance – Podcast #062

The Equine Practice Inc, The Horse's Advocate

Arrogance ( the offensive display of superiority or self-importance; overbearing pride.

Confidence ( belief in oneself and one’s powers or abilities; self-confidence; self-reliance; assurance.

These two human traits are often confused, especially in horsemanship. In this podcast, I discuss the difference between these two attitudes and their bearing on how we interact with horses. I also describe the four basic personalities of horses and how we can build a relationship with each type even when they are so different.

I also discuss how we can change ourselves in a way that doesn’t complicate our life but enhances our ability to connect with those horses who would not otherwise want to. I use these principles daily and describe the horses we saw during the past week to show how Melissa and I used them to teach a new dentistry student how to connect within 30 seconds, not 30 minutes or 30 days.
