To have a horse in your life is truly a gift.
In the matter of a few short
years, a horse can teach a chld courage, responsibility, trust and devotion.
Horses teach us responsibility.
Learning to care for a horse is both an art and a science.
There are clever horses, grumpy horses, and even horses with a sense of humor.
There are as many "types" of horses as there are people.
When you step back, it's not just about horses - it's about love, life, and learning.
As horse people, we share the
accelerated life cycle of horses: the hurried rush of life, love, loss, and death that caring for these animals brings us.
When our partners pass, it is more than a moment of sorrow.
We mark our loss with words of gratitude for the ways our lives have been blessed.
Our memories are of joy, awe, and wonder. Absolute
union. We honor our horses for their brave hearts, courage, and willingness to give.
Those who know them understand how fully a horse can hold a human heart.
To those outside our circle, it must seem strange. To see us in our muddy boots, who would guess such poetry lives in our hearts?
We celebrate our companions with praise worthy of heroes.
Listen to stories of that once-in-a-lifetime horse; of journeys made and challenges met. The best of horses rise to the challenges we set before them, asking little in return.
In the end, we're not certain if God entrusts us to our horses--or our horses to us.
Does it matter? We're grateful God loaned us the horse in the first place.
