Kim Wren was interviewed by The Age today about equine communication. Read all about it here.
Form the article:
“Equine experts say it’s just that most people don’t realise the horse is trying to talk to them in the first place.
Kim Wren, the owner of Wedgetail Rides in the Yarra Valley, said the people in this study have simply taken the time to listen to the horses involved.
“We’re often talking to horses, telling them what they can and can’t do,” she said.
“But a lot of horses communicate with humans and each other through body language. We need to listen by watching the body language. This is exactly what these people [the researchers] are doing – they’ve taught them cues.”
Ms Wren has a herd of 17 horses she uses for classes with at-risk youth or people living with disabilities. “
Enjoy a day with our ponies learning basic skills in grooming, leading and caring for your horse. We will have lots of fun activities including decorating your pony, games, a riding lesson (on lead) and a trail ride in our beautiful bushland setting.
Suitable for beginners to intermediate ages: 6-12 years.
Bookings essential. Call Kim on 0417 312 602.
Clothing: Long pants, covered shoes and T-shirt. In summer we ask that children bring a change of clothes and a towel for swimming in the dam, and in winter we ask them to bring rain jackets.
