Herd healing and the human heart #3

Going back to that spectacular moment when a human first mounted a horse and galloped at a speed never before experienced inside of the human DNA, what enabled the human to communicate with this prey animal. After all, humans were their predators. Outside of the Eurasian Steepe, where it is believed human and horse co-habitated, horses were nearly hunted to extinction. And, human certainly witnessed the horses violent defenses when the feline predators acted to bring the horse down by leaping onto its back. How did the horse and human communicate and collaborate? In Pankseep's words, these are the human "archaeological treasures" that fascinate me. And, I have witnessed that these "multihued Jewels" are there within all of us to access.
