I understand the need for the silent times as you get to know your animal, and that any sudden movements should be avoided. I have always stood in front of any new horse, stared into its eyes for a few ( I get a feeling when) minutes and then raised one arm very slowly in its line of sight and rub my palm on its cheek as i talk with it. Each movement it makes, i will make one or say something. I always put my forehead on its head ( after about at least 5/10 mins). This something that has not let me down getting to know any horse. So all you have written and said i agree with. I think that more people should know about this as nothing can beat the personal touch ( mind and feel). I enjoyed the videos. Thank you
