This is an opportunity to see the herd’s natural behaviour, body language, herd dynamic and communication – a great way to enhance or practice your understanding of horse-speak.
It’s called Silent Observation because the human holding the camera isn’t talking, or trying to interact with the horses in any way. However, the human is aware that she is facilitating this experience for you, so she is simultaneously receiving guidance from the herd as to what to film, who to focus the camera on, etc.
I would love to hear about anything special, or interesting, that occurred for you during this Silent Observation. Remember, horses are not bound by time or space, so even when you’re watching a recording, they can still communicate with you, support you emotionally, or send you images, ideas, etc.
