Every once in a while I get an article that I just have to share with everyone. America's Horse Daily (AQHA) is a daily Enewsletter I get about all kinds of information.
Today it was a tribute to Tom Dorrance. According to America's Horse Daily: "The man who inspired Ray Hunt, Greg Ward, Dr. Robert Miller, Jack Brainard, Pat Parelli and thousands more."
Resistance free training or natural horsemanship... whatever term you want to use, Tom Dorrance was the grandfather here in North America.
AQHA states: "“This is not magic,” he has said. “It is reality.”
Here are some notable quotes: "He was so tuned in, he seemed to almost be sending the horse a message by mental telepathy."
"...Tom believed animals could read people’s thoughts, and that if people would try to do the same, and see things from the animal’s perspective, they could create an environment of willing communication."
"“The best thing I try to do for myself is to try to listen to the horse. I don’t mean let him take over. I listen to how he’s operating; what he’s understanding or what he doesn’t understand; what’s bothering him and what isn’t bothering him. I try to feel what the horse is feeling and operate from where the horse is.” – Tom Dorrance, May 11, 1910 – June 11, 2003"

I believe in mental telepathy with a horse and other animals. Do you?
