You have to ask yourself sometimes.
What drives you to do this…
It’s a strange infatuation, no?
For all our difficulties, I love this young, strong, and healthy mare. And the throaty greetings in the paddock.
Riding her Monday morning after 9 days off was absolutely no problem. She has matured into a super safe horse. Thought she responded really well to the simple things asked of her today.
Now we just need to keep working on an agreement that she will give a good effort for a few minutes, if followed by a walk break. She hasn’t signed the contract just yet.
Reading some study on how there’s now proof that horses actually have an effect on the human heart rate.
Slowing it. Or synchronizing it. Releasing effects on a neurological level.
We needed a study to know this?
