Yeah, horses know what you're thinking. No kidding, I really think some of them (if you have a close connection) can truly read your mind. If you don't really want to jump that jump that's in front of you, chances are your horse isn't going to jump it.

What I do is think positive, and like SNL said, breathe deep. It kind of leaves no room for fear, lol.

Sorry to butt in on your conversation, but about the horses reading your mind, I believe it's all in your energy (and mind of course.) My intructor does round-penning with her appendix horse, and she makes the horse gallop around her without saying anything. She can even make it stop and turn around the other and she just stands there. She says she uses her energy to control the horse.

I know, right? XD It's not that hard- you push all your energy out of the front (your stomach area) and control the horse with that.... But it takes a ton of practice. I can only make my horse walk, trot and canter with my energy. >.< That's it. But she's a real pro.

I think they can actually "read your mind" too though. Once I was walking up to the arena and the horse was drooling. I thought, and only thought mind you, Eww, Louie, that's gross! and he stopped dead. And wouldn't move. So I thought, Okay, okay, I'm sorry and he started moving again. No, I don't think they can understand words, but they can understand the meaning whether you're speaking or thinking. Or maybe I just changed my energy. But why would he have stopped then? I could tell several stories about horses "reading minds" but it would be a lot of typing.

In any case, they understand you somehow.

D'awww. That's cute. A horse drooling. XD

But anyway, that's really cool! I'm very new to horses (only started taking lessons a few weeks ago) but they're such interesting animals. :)

It's called clover drip, all the horses get it when there's a lot of clover because of some bacteria or something that's on it. It's so gross, you'll go to put the bit in and it's like a waterfall of drool. Bleh! Except Louie gets a hackamore (no bit) ;D

Awesome, a new rider! Do you ride English or Western or something else? Horses are amazing animals.
