When we focus our being on the tasks we want or need to accomplish with our horses, we sometimes miss the invitation from them to simply be with them. The power of doing nothing can mean as much to our relationship with them, an with ourselves, as all of the actual things we do to support and care for them. Striking a balance between simply doing and simply being is one of the gifts our horses give us. Enjoy today's episode with Kim and her herd.
Transformations often depend on a catalyst. Sometimes that catalyst for our own transformation may take the form of a lesson from our horses. Schelli Whitehouse speaks for her horse Magnum in this episode as he reminds us that the healer within us is ready for action.

How many times have you heard "It's Never Too Late"! And yet, how many times have you felt just the opposite?
I remember as a kid I dreamed of being the youngest Grand Prix Showjumping rider of all times! Later, I adjusted that goal to be the first Amateur rider to win an Invitational Grand Prix! Years later, I gave in to the idea that I would be the OLDEST person to ride in their first Grand Prix. Oh well, now I am pretty happy just watching from the stands and enjoying what my horse and I can do together on our own time.

Kim and Missy take us on another journey to building a better relationship. Taking time to be thoughtful and present can make all the difference to our horse. Even when we are performing small tasks.

These moments form the bedrock of a trusting friendship. I hope you enjoy today's wisdom from the horses!

"I get by with a little help from my friends"
I was reminded of this song while listening to Kimberly Cardeccia MA, LPC this week. The support network we build around us is so important, but in our horsey dealings, and yet as horsemen and horsewomen, we often struggle to ask for help or recognize when support is needed. Kim shares her journey with her equine partner "Missy" and invites us to explore those vulnerable moments that serve to remind us when and how to seek help from outside our circle. Enjoy and thanks for connecting!
