You are absolutely right, and it can be so difficult especially if you've never been in a traumatic situation yourself.. then you have a very hard time helping the creature to trust again and feel safe in their own skin. I would pass down all the well off horses so long as they found homes, and open my heart to those that really need my help.
I love seeing the difference going from scared of the world and paranoid, to safe and confident and glowing :) And lucky me, I see it all the time in my Sky
