Humans have a relationship with horses that conjures feelings of freedom, devotion, and passion within us all.
Despite their immense strength and power, horses are vegetarians and feed on grass, grains, and seeds, thus showing us the physical vitality and strength that we can gain by eating natural, plant-based foods. Even though horses are capable of incredible physical feats, it is rarely necessary for them to do so, meaning that they choose their moments to use their power with specific intention and purpose.
The horse’s only natural defence against predators is to run, to move. They help us to channel our own drive, passion, and motivation to get moving toward our goals. Horses naturally become more confident, learning and growing through positive experiences.
The horse can teach us that in times of uncertainty, we must use our negative experiences to give us that little nudge from behind in order to move forward into the right direction; that when we are no longer feeling fulfilled by our surroundings, it is an indication that we have been standing still for too long and it is time to move forward.
In life we can see that sometimes we must decide whether to be the workhorse or the show pony, and be at peace with the fact that we might be both! We are reminded to see that putting in the leg work will allow us the opportunity to pursue greener pastures at the other end, and to stop long enough to show the world what we have learnt in our travels.
