Active And Passive Body Language

Passive body language is language you use when you don’t want the horse to move. You aren’t facing the horse directly, you might be bent over at the shoulders, maybe even resting your leg. (Having your own hind leg cocked)

Active body language is when you want the horse to move. You stand up straight, you might face the horse directly, and you change your body from someone who doesn’t want the horse to move, so I want you to move.

When you use the different language

You have to use both passive and active language when you are working with horses. And it is in your use of them consistently that the horse will learn to read your body and know when it move, and know when not to. I can move my horses backwards, forwards, left and right, stop, turn, yield both back and front ends from just my body language. I have got them to the point where all I have to do is look a lot of the times at them and they will move how I want them to.

How do you do it?

You want to get your horse to read your body as well. You get your horses to listen to your body language by always asking with your body language first. Then if you need to go to asking with pressure to make the horse move that is ok, but always ask by changing your body language and that is what you can expect to ask for before long. Because if you always start with pressure you can never get any softer then always having to ask with pressure. If you start with asking with body language, although in the beginning you would have to increase the pressure, you can then get to only asking with your body.

In the beginning

In the beginning the horse isn’t going to know the difference and know to stop when you change to passive body language. If you want the horse to stop and have changed your body language, and the horse isn’t stopping, go and move the horses feet more. You have to make your idea the horses idea, and if you want the horse to stop and the horse is still moving, you moving the horses feet more will give more incentive for the horse to want to stop. They will be more inclined to take that break when you give it to them because they will know they will then have to move more.
