About Me

My photo

You've found the Mary-Dixon page about horsemanship.  Horses are my passion and my obsession.  They have helped me become a kinder, more confident, more patient person.  What they have taught me about them and taught me about myself is immeasureable.  I now try to teach folks about the nature of horses and how to understand each other which leads to a more confident human and a more confident little darling.

Tip: Eyes are Pressure

When someone is watching or looking at you all the time, it makes you uncomfortable, doesn't it?  Horses feel the same way - it is pressure to them.  It is ok to look at your horse to ask him to do something, but as soon as he does it, take your eyes away from him and slump (relax) your body - he'll think he got the right answer when you do that and he is comfortable again which he loves.
