Creating A Base Of Support

Setbacks happen on the path to achievement. Think about it—when a new born foal first begins to rise after birth , they often fall with their first attempts. They find their way as their legs begin to create the base of support they need to rise. Just as new born foal, our own falls teach

Gratitudes Reflection

Imagine how it must feel to the horse when gratitude becomes our natural reaction to life’s challenges. Gratitudes energy requires no engagement in any physical behavior. It takes little effort to generate feelings of appreciation. In our awake joyful expression the horse will often show a higher level of responsiveness. I often will take a moment

Letting Go Of The Need To Compare

We have only one obligation in life and that’s to be completely who we are. It’s a human condition to spend waisted time comparing ourselves to others. This one act alone is the most deadly thing we can do to ourselves. Unconsciously this is encouraged as necessary in the pursuit of excellence.  We humans constantly aspire

For me my sensitivity to the horse, hinges on what I am willing to receive as the horse reflects who I am. I have found I never give some parts of who I am enough credit, but it is just as certain the horse has reflected to me there are parts I have given too much credit.

Freely Giving

The bed and breakfast was full of excitement as everyone gathered for dinner.

Being Kind With Ourselves

I felt his breath begin to labor as the climb up the mountain became challenging. I asked myself if the heat along with the steep grade was to stressful for this large bodied black horse. A flat area came into focus ahead of me. I surveyed his needs to make a decision, rest or continue. We

Releasing Limiting Beliefs

  What we believe determines not only our health, but the physical stance and posture we assume, and that physicality becomes the way we communicate to others and our horse. Many of our beliefs empower us. Limiting or fear driven core beliefs are the ones that create chaos. They show themselves in how both human

Empowered Listening

  It takes courage to listen in a transformative way. Humans often are unknowing in how they intrench themselves in unyielding listening, especially when it relates to their horses.  Letting go of our identity, fear and judgment, will remove our desire to always listen to respond. Many of our needs will be cared for in our ability
