Respect

I will always have another opportunity: the horse always tell me so. Mistakes can come at a high ex spence for the horse and some mistakes will land me pilled up in the dirt. Rightly so if the horse put me there. I am just not your average human when it comes to learning from

Birth

 I am inspired by new birth. New baby foals, flowers, trees and new understanding in our already established relationships with our horses. What will I find in my exploration of today’s observations? Knowing that all horses are unique and are honest in their expressions. I have to ask myself how can I grow and carry

Facing Reality Heals Lives

  Do you give back as much as you take from the horse? It is often overlooked how much humanity takes from the horse. Many of us get snagged in the illusion of a fantasy that’s driven by our ego’s identity. This keeps many blind to the horses reality.  Humans lose track that they are

Ask A New Question

  When asking the horse the same question, and they respond with undesired results, ask a different question. I have experienced myself applying the same action with a horse repeatedly expecting a different outcome.  “Asking the horse the same question again and again,  and expecting a different result, is the true meaning of insanity” When I

Past or present?

Do you live in the past or the present with your horse? Does your horse live in the past or the present with you? This is a topic I think about quite often. When I am working with young horses that have not had much handling, it is like working with a blank canvas. This
