It was a few years ago we gentled Sunny (Sol) at the ROTH foal gentling clinic at Ray of Light Farms in Connecticut. She was but a few weeks old and the most shy and smallest of them all – she has grown into herself and put her past behind her (being subject to the PMU industry). Sunny seeks eye contact, she seeks connection and clarity. When it was lost, she learned to tune out. She wants to read her trainer’s eye by tracking her thoughts and create a place of safety. Without it she runs riot in the round pen with it she moved into softness and relaxation! Its these little things that are so big for our horses, without them all goes wrong, with the subtleties it seems so simple when you know how.
