This remedy can be given to horses who take a long time to learn how life with humans and other horses can be made to work. But it isn’t a panacea for any horse who does not do exactly what you want. There may be very good reasons why your horse is not learning from you, and if you are the one making mistakes you might think about taking Chestnut Bud yourself.
The essence of Chestnut Bud is to learn from life lessons to gain experience. Chestnut Bud promotes alertness and quickly recognize any mistakes and patterns. Provides insight into the learning process.
Things to look for:
- Horses who can’t learn simple rules and moves despite repeated (and gentle) encouragement
- Horses who repeat behavior despite the bad effects that follow, such as the colt who continues to make overtures to an adult mare despite the fact that he always receives a kick for his trouble
“For those who do not take full advantage of observation and experience, and who take a longer time than others to learn the lessons of daily life. Whereas one experience would be enough for some, such people find it necessary to have more, sometimes several, before the lesson is learnt. Therefore, to their regret, they find themselves having to make the same error on different occasions when once would have been enough, or observation of others could have spared them even that one fault.” Dr. Edward Bach ~
