The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 45 | Calming signals as communication with Anna Blake

Speaking with horse advocate Anna Blake was beyond delightful, and had me giggling or crying good tears throughout the episode, as she shared her hard-earned wisdom about horses, training, communication and life. We talked about calming signals, how they show up in horses and humans, and how we can use them as a road map to understanding and relaxation. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
