its a philosophy of why and how the horse operates.

you were to ask Peter of his teachings, he would tell you, "I
am on a journey to free the horse of slavery. The horse is a partner,
not a hostage. I want the horse to understand he can have his self-preservation
and still respond to what we're asking him to do and that we're
not going to hurt him. You direct and support the horse and you
build on his pride. These are not my concepts, they date back to
the beginning of time but they are often misused or misunderstood.
If you can get the horse to understand what you are asking, be let
down and have respect for each other, you can get a willingness
-- a bond that can't be broken. It's like a dance, someone leads
but it's just a suggestion, not a forceful deal. The horse will
tell us what we need to do to work with him if we only learn to
listen, understand and feel of the horse.
