Studying horse whispering, on your own time, can sometimes be done at home on your computer.
YouTube members often upload various videos of horses doing different things. By keeping pen and paper with you, the possibilities are endless for discovering the horse language yourself.
- Collect and watch around ten horse videos showing similar situations
- Choose the videos that are most common to each other
- Pick videos of horses with horses only. Do not choose videos with humans and horses together.
- Narrow down your video collections to ones containing pawing, for example, or ones with horses eating. Other ideas are ones of horses grooming each other or the filming of an introduction of a new horse to a pasture with other horses.
- Using the pawing collection example to explain: Study everything about the pawing. Where is the horse’s head placed? Where is it? What is going on around it? What is obvious about the situation? Does it switch feet, use just one, paw only a certain number of times? What immediately follows the pawing?
- Take notes.
- After reviewing and noting a collection, find leads using behavior that occurs in more than one video.
- Choose your next collection of videos.
- Using the introduction to a new pasture collection example to explain: Study everything. Repeat the process of studying behavior, surroundings, and the obvious. Look for similar behavior (even if ever so slight) between other collections and behavior within the collection.
- Take notes.
- Repeat with more behavior videos that you can condense into a collection containing a similar feature (such as the previous examples, or more: Horses approaching water, horses at feeding time, horses fighting or horses running around in the wind.
- Take notes, compare and you will likely find a piece of the horses language.
