“Horses Give Us a Place”​​​​​​​

I really love the quote below. Somehow for me, it rings true.

And … like many of the gifts that come into our lives, it was shared with me through a close friend.

Grief really is love with no place to go … except for those of us who love horses.

I believe our horses are healing because we not only have a place to express our love, but we have a place to be ourselves … totally unplugged and vulnerable.

We can hug them. We can cry. We can talk to them out loud.

We know they feel us. We know they hug us back and somehow understand.

The healing power of a horse in our time of healing need is extraordinary. And, now I realize one of the reasons why. They give us one of the most beautiful and safe places ever for our love to go.

  2. Barbara you so inspired me while we were in Moab retreat. If I could change one thing it would be to have our daughter be there also. Sharing with her what I experienced has tickled her passion for coming out to be with the horses. She is coming up tonight to stay with us and go to the ranch I work at to help groom the mini’s tomorrow (we have 7 of these little darlings so she’ll be busy)! Thank you for you gentle kindness and help. You are a treasure.
