It wasn’t until after the conversation that I realized he was thinking that the horses would be my friends and although they are my friends and great company, this is not what I meant by my statement. Horses can do many jobs in our lives. Most of us think of a horse's job as what we do with them for sport such as jumping, driving, dressage, working cows, you get the picture.
Our horses have not only helped me feel less socially awkward but they have also taught me better ways to conduct myself. Through all their nonsense and drama I’ve learned how not to participate in the hullabaloo and to just watch and let things unfold until it’s time to step in and make a suggestion to better the current situation. I’ve learnt how to keep cool, and work with the situation in front of me. I often wonder how non horse people cope with things when they haven’t been taught to relax in the face of potential disaster.
Happy Horsing Around
