Enjoying the moment...
Even though there's always something "to do" on the farm, I've been intentionally working towards slowing my own thoughts down.
Yes, I check one thing off the list and add four more projects.
But that is irrelevant to the horses. As is time.
Learning to recognize and change how we respond to triggers that create an "urgency" in our own human patterns of thoughts, emotions and behaviors can completely alter the relationship with the horse.
The human can still have clarity, intention, and a goal, yet without adding the chaos that appears when the Conversation with the horse becomes a dictatorship rather than two-way communication.
