Ever had a horse refuse or resent doing something they normally have no issue with? Did it make you feel that something had gone awry in your relationship with your horse? Is it more likely that it has little or nothing to do with you but that you might have an opportunity to help your horse get back on track? Kim Cardeccia and her horses lead us through a exercise that reminded her to be as gentle with herself as she is with her horses. Are there instances when you forgot to treat yourself with the same regard and compassion you show your horses? Feel free to share!
