Leading and riding of horses is a head thing.
The developing of feelings, intuition and behavior is the base of language as communicated to the horse.
It is the human in his personality that speaks or whispers with the horse. Is one solved in his inner then is the language different as if one is tensed, fearful and nervous.
The horses feel it.
The empathy training conveys the path of relaxation in the language with the horse and trained the harmony in leading and riding by feeling and intuition.
This has many positive effects that can be reached in this way.
