Remember your childhood dream and why you started riding?
Growing up in a sailing family in the north of Germany …..it didn’t seem to be my “thing”
Basically I started pestering my parents a lot to learn how to ride …. well once I convinced them the rest is history.
I wasn’t home much anymore, mainly escaping on my bike to the delicious smell of horses , their soft noses and their gentle nature.
And all of a sudden life started making sense getting up early and working!
Riding in all sorts of weather rain hail or shine, in the arena or on trails.
Luckily we lived near a forest where I could go and ride for hours.
The dream of being around horses and making them a part of my life is a decision that I made from my heart(and a nudge from my husband to take the plunge)
I don’t think he had ANY idea in the beginning how big an adventure this journey would become!
It just feels right.
Most horses become your friend and it is very sad to see them move away.
They offer so much for me and once they feel the positive change of being in balance, they become proud and look forward to the next session.
Most horses give you everything without a second thought of their own well-being.
You look into their faces, you can see they have facial expressions.
They are curious and yes, the first instinct is to run, but the second is to come and investigate and be noisy ….and the safer they feel, the more they are happy to hang around and learn.
Horses that are in balance and in harmony with their rider are a pleasure to watch.
The horse starts to shine and dance with a sparkle in their eyes.
They look after their rider, as long as the rider looks after them – then it IS a partnership.
Horses have the great ability to make everything better, they have an excellent way of communicating without saying a word.
They are incredibly forgiving and don’t have “agenda”- horses are in the ‘here and now’.
No one has to teach a horse ‘Mindfulness’!
If you treat them with respect you have a friend for life.
So they suit my ‘no- nonsense’ attitude very well.
They unfortunately have one small disadvantage- you can’t take them home quite like a dog ….. not yet.
Working on it!
If you have this dream or it has been re kindled after a long absence with horses, I can teach you- slowly but surely and safely.
