The Invisible Wall

Understanding THE problem behind all other problems with your horse

Like us, horses are born with few fears.

For example, we humans are born with only two innate fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud sounds.

A 1960 study evaluated depth perception among 6-14 month-old infants and young animals.

Researchers placed the subjects on a platform that had plexiglass beyond its edge.

They wanted to see how many of them would actually step over the "visual cliff."

Most of the subjects - both children and animals - didn't step out onto the plexiglass.

The conclusion?

The fear of falling is a universal instinct necessary for survival (even for your horse).

And when you hear loud sounds you'll more than likely react with a fight or flight type response.

It's called "your acoustic startle reflex" according to Seth Norrholm, a translational neuro-scientist at Emory University.

If a sound is loud enough you will automatically duck your head.

It's a response we have that signals something dangerous may be around the corner.

So if we are only born with 2 innate fears, where do all the others come from?

And what does this have to do with you and your horse?

As we mentioned above, horses are born pure and innocent with very few fears and only a few innate behavior patterns.

How a horse (or you or I) react later in life is a learned behavior based on experience and emotion.

Hold that thought in your head for a moment as I’m going to return to it but first...

Do any of the following describe you?

  • You don’t want to hit your horse
  • It makes you uncomfortable when others tell you to show your horse who’s boss
  • You want to become a better human partner for your horse despite all the frustrations
  • You always make time for your horse despite everything going on in your life
  • You doubt your abilities with horses... especially when other people suggest you should get rid of yours
  • You're desperate to make your horse happy even though you’re sometimes afraid for your own safety
  • You get frustrated and often feel sad when things don’t work out as you’d hoped

If you said “YES” to any of these, then I want to tell you that you are MUCH closer than you think to finally succeeding.

Here’s why:

  • Your reluctance to hit your horse SHOWS that your heart is in the right place.
  • Questioning the ‘normal’ way of doing things DEMONSTRATES your independence of mind and your courage
  • Juggling all the things going on in your life is PROOF that you have the multi-tasking capabilities that your horse needs.
  • Soldiering on despite the challenges you face REVEALS your willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed.
  • Questioning your abilities and taking it personally DISPLAYS you're willing to accept full responsibility for your results.
  • Thinking you‘re disappointing your horse MEANS your heart is in the right place and you want to do the right thing by him or her.
  • Taking the time to read this report EXHIBITS your willingness to explore new approaches and ideas.

All these things show that you have what it takes to be successful with your horse...

BUT your efforts are being misdirected.

In other words...


It’s WHAT YOU ARE DOING to try and solve the problems that's not working.

You've probably been told (by a trainer) that the solution is more training.

But training is only the icing on the cake, it's not one of the raw ingredients for creating a connection with your horse.

Training doesn't get to the ROOT CAUSE of the behaviors your horse is exhibiting.

Because the REAL problem lies DEEPER than that.

And by giving your horse more training you are actually making this underlying problem WORSE.

All because of the INVISIBLE WALL between you and your horse...

And each time you try to fix the problem you are in fact adding another brick to the Wall.

Another brick in the wall

So in this report I want to take you behind the Wall...

And share with you the ROOT CAUSE of ALL your issues so you can start to address them.

I am going to lay out for you, courtroom lawyer style, the evidence to identify the real culprit behind these problems...

And more importantly - what you can do about it.

I will reveal it all to you in this report so you can see for yourself.

But before we get to that...

Yes, some of what I am going to tell you will challenge your 'worldview' of horses but...

Thanks to ​Matthew Inman for the inspiration

Yes, it's okay to stop and to change if you want to.

Or not.

It's up to you.

P.S. I’ve just learnt this so thought I’d share it with you…

Have you come across TL;DR before?

Me neither until a few weeks ago when I asked my husband what it meant after starting to see it regularly...

It stands for Too Long ; Didn’t Read, abbreviated to TL;DR

It's bullet point highlights like this:


  • Horses are born pure and innocent with very few fears and only a few innate behavior patterns
  • How a horse reacts after that is a learned behavior based on experience and emotion
  • The problems your horse has are not because of you, they are due to what you are doing
  • Giving your horse more training is actually making this underlying problem worse
  • You already have what it takes to be successful with your horse
  • Whenever you decide to... 

I’ll add these to the end of each page of this report to help you :)
