Shhh! The ‘Horse Whisperer’ Is Coming

Funny Horse

Bob Allen practices “natural horsemanship.” He is, in fact, a “horse whisperer,” and he’s coming to Hallettsville on Thursday, January 9th to present a program on the subject. If you own–or plan to own–a horse (or horses), you’re sure to find this to be a fascinating presentation.

According to Wikipedia:

Natural horsemanship, colloquially known as horse whispering, is a collective term for a variety of horse training techniques which have seen rapid growth in popularity since the 1980s. The techniques vary in their precise tenets but generally share principles of developing a rapport with horses, using communication techniques derived from observation of free-roaming horses, and rejecting abusive training methods.

Natural horsemanship practitioners have created an exclusionary social meme, describing the approach as being a radical departure from “traditional” techniques, which are often portrayed as being based in the use of unnecessary force. Users and practitioners tend to relate benefits in relation to the quasi-scientific narrative of the ethology of horse behavior, and to the idea of anthropomorphic partnership.

Author/Educator Bob Allen will present a program to the Crossroads Equestrian Club at the Wilbur Baber Memorial Complex Expo Center (FM 957 & CR 200, Hallettsville) from noon-3 p.m. on Thursday, January 9th. For more information, contact Nancy Braus at (361) 798-9295.
