Connie with Wendy at her stables in Dorset, where she has lived and breathed horses since she was two years old. In her lifetime she has worked with thousands of horses, and with a combination of voice and touch, she communicates her intent to her charges. Many young horses come to her when others have given up on them and she uses her years of experience to develop in them a state of no resistance. She’s not, she says, a horse whisperer. Whilst she firmly believes there are those with that talent, they are few and far between.
“The whispering is a natural ability to communicate with a horse, but training is something you can only learn through years of experience.”
