Horse- Man-Ship Mentality - The pleading horse
Horses appreciate their riders developing understanding more than we can imagine I am sure. Think how frustrating it would be to you if you tried everyday to have a conversation with someone that speaks a different language than you.
It would make you want to give up. It would seem pointless to try to do anything, because the exact moment you entered into a conversation. There is going to have to be a tremendous amount of effort on each party to gain any kind of "understanding" if there is ever any kind achieved. I would want to avoid the situation completely and I think this is where most horses live.
They either have to numb us out completely in order to survive or do whatever they can do to avoid having a conversation with us. But oh what a "Relief" it is to them to have a person who comes into their presence that understands their language and takes their viewpoint into consideration in everything they do.
