The blessing of a horse's love.

I wrote the content of this thread over a year ago and it has already been posted once on the Forum. But as I caught sight of the thread today I realised how apt it is.

The love and understanding of a horse is not a blessing which every horse owner comes to enjoy. It is a two way emotion between two creatures of very different species.
It is a touchie feelie thing experienced through the finger tips.
It is a form of non verbal communication expressed through the thighs.
It is an incredibly sensitive and intuitive emotion.
If there is such a thing as telemetry then surely it can exist between horse and rider.

Sooner or later a horse comes to realize that it is utterly dependent upon the human for its comfort and well being.
Sooner or later the rider becomes aware that his or her safety comes largely as a gift from the horse held between the thighs.
Together horse and rider make a couple.

If you discover this powerful bond of mutual trust then you are indeed blessed.

But be ready for the tears when the relationship is taken away.


There is no horse in my life now and I am the poorer for the lack.
