What I saw today is how many layers of awareness we need to have when around the horses… as many layers of awareness as the horses have and then some, in order to respond appropriately to what is going on around.

I nearly got trampled today and would've been had I not been aware of what another person was doing with the horse they were leading on the other side of my horse… I was only put in that position because of the other person’s lack of awareness about the herd dynamic and which horse is dominant. Herd dynamics don’t cease just because we have a lead rope or bridle on a horse… so it seems we need not just to be aware of the horses around us but also the environment and the other people in it with us, especially if they are oblivious to the things that can kick off at any moment purely as a result of how they place hostile horses too near to one another…
