As promised, here is the episode talking about Pumpkin! This episode is all about my beautiful mare Pumpkin, what she has taught me, how she has challenged me, how she's transformed over the years, and so much more! We talk about:
"Slow", "resistant", and "lazy" horses.
The different ways fear can manifest in behavior.
How to recognize learned helplessness/shut down/going internal behavior.
What can cause frustration and rage responses in us as trainers.
How I responded then vs now to Pumpkin.
Putting horses into boxes and the problem with treating rescue and "regular" horses differently.
Plus a lot more! This is a bunny trail episode as we explore all the ways Pumpkin has made changes in me and my horsemanship. www.thewillingequine.com
