This is the name accorded to the "new masters” of riding claiming the ability to whisper to horses. The stated goal is to maintain a relationship different from that of the military riding. Unfortunately, their listening is not complete and they are struggling to rid themselves of traditional practices. Thus the most famous of them, Monty Roberts, whispers to the horses but has not listened to them since, even in 2015, his “favourite farrier” is an advocate of the shod horse and this remains normal for him. Too bad!
