The Science and Spirituality of Working with Horses by
Allan J. Hamilton, M.D.
This approach to horse training offers everyone who works with horses -- novice or expert -- a new understanding of how humans work and interact with horses and how doing so can lead to spiritual awakening. Horses have evolved to understand and respond to the flow of vital energy -- chi -- around them, using it to communicate with members of their herd, express dominance, and sense danger from nearby predators. Being quietly present and receptive to your horse’s chi opens the potential of your emotional, intuitive right brain, awakening your deep sensitivity, calm leadership, intuition, and mindfulness.
