Horses are prey animals, they’ve evolved as highly sensitive creatures able to read every situation and size up every being they meet. Including you! Horses don’t know what you did yesterday, or five years ago, they only see you as you are in the present moment. Their behavior reflects what they see.
When you pay attention, the horses show you exactly what you need to know.
It might seem like some kind of horse magic, but horses communicate in a non-verbal language that requires your full attention. Whether you’re brushing, petting, leaning your head against a horse’s withers, leading her over an obstacle, or just hanging out and watching her ears twitch, the right side of your brain is engaged. You’re paying attention to non-verbal cues. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for, perhaps for years, when you turn off the left side of the brain where your critic waits with a list of obligations, responsibilities, shoulds, and anxieties. It’s where your overthinker and worrier lives!
Meanwhile, the right side of your brain is the birthplace of feeling, intuition, imagining; it generates creative options for getting from where you are now, to where you want to be.
