Sometimes I think telling stories is the best way to learn about how a theory applies in context. I've been writing a lot of stories about communication with horses to my public blog. Here is a link to that should you care to investigate further.
Meanwhile, since I know the audio files are handy for many of you, I recorded two of the recent blogs so you can listen when it's convenient. These are stories about a horse that lives across the street that I don't really know (well, I do now, we're are quite good friends at this point!). In two short encounters he taught me so much about communicating via body language. Quite cool!
