What is Feel based training?
Feel and Release is a more direct way of communicating with all beings. Feel-based handling is learning how to leave your horses natural movement available to them. It is learning what a true partner means to a horse, and handling that brings mind, body, and spirit in one.
I am going to start by assuming we are all familiar with some form of pressure and release methods of training (Traditional or Natural). What we don't realize is that pressure based methods limit the horses ability to efficiently give you what you are looking for. Simply stated up "we unitentionally set them up to fail". By understanding how a horse moves on four legs, and eliminating pressure based training methods we have the opportunity to make what we need easy. It offers the horse a true way to be in harmony with humans, and gives us what we want or need. Working through feel changed my life as well as the lives of the horses around me.
Understanding feel vs. pressure and release.
