“I am not naughty – I am confused or scared or in pain. Please help me feel safe in your world.”

Today the theme is generosity of spirit. When our horses present challenging behaviour that scares or frustrates us we can be pretty quick to label them as flawed in some way. This is great shame because it blocks our wonderfully creative problem solving side from finding a solution and taking responsibility for our role in their behaviour. So next time you feel like labeling try understanding from the horses point of view instead – their priorities can be very different to ours as a nomadic, prey, non-territorial herd dweller.
Please share if you have some horse loving friends that might enjoy this reminder to be generous.
