And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew His breath over it and created the horse.. Bedoiun Legend
Working with a horse invites you into deeper understanding of yourself. Horses provide the unique opportunity for us to see ourselves as we truly are. They can only be honest, and they see our truth sometimes before we do. Yet they hold this mirror up to us without judgment, creating space for us to try a new way of being. This kind of authenticity can be intimidating and refereshing at the same time, they are living breathing biofeedback machines. They bring immediate credibility, so insights we have about ourselves in their presence create positive changes towards self-awareness, self-esteem and self-efficacy. Horses live in the present and challenge us to do the same. They do not regret the past or worry about the future. They respond to who we are in the moment, always in a way that teaches us something about ourselves and how we can grow.
