Horses teach us vulnerability at it's finest. They teach us to become vulnerable to ourselves. Vulnerability means accepting what the moment brings and responding the way you and only you would respond. Vulnerability means following your path at your own pace. Vulnerability means looking back down the hill (no matter how steep or shallow) and realizing that you still climbed a hill.
Having a safe and consistent place to learn, can actually speed up you and your horse's development! I call it my 'Learning Palace'.
