  1. I always enjoy your blogs and videos. They really make me think. I found your comment about feeding larger quantities of treats very interesting and I am going to experiment with this a bit more. thank you Rachel

  2. Wonderful Rachel thanks so much equine psychology and behaviour and the benefits of connection training are amazing and I have developed a profound relationship with my pony, you make it so interesting for us thank you 🙂

  3. Really enjoyed this – I think it was just what I needed to hear for my two year old, Frankie. Time for a little less “seeking” and a little more “care” with him for sure. Thanks!

    well done- reminded me that it can be important to make sure they have those extra moments to chew… especially when teaching a new behavior, and I really want them to know — yes that was it– you got it right. Sometimes i will rush into the next thing and not give them a moment for enjoying the grass pellet. Thanks for the reminder, because the chewing and the feeling chewing brings is part of the bonding relationship I want to build with my donkeys.
