    Oh where to start.

    I would honestly have to thank my horse,Gidget out of all horses. This horse has taught me so much and I'm constantly learning horse lingo.
    She has taught me how to ride and not give to give up. I didn't know how to ride when I first got her and she can be a rough ride at first! I hung in there. I would and have broke down numerous times and thought about giving up.
    My horse has taught me to think more clearly and if I don't I'll get hurt.
    She has taught me respect but we are still working on it as it's a battle and I think that's most of our issue.
    I have become very intuned with my horse to where when I go see her I automatically know something is wrong by her body language. I can tell when she has had a bad day. She tries her hardest for me for competitions and shows and she knows when I am proud of her. You can tell when she knows she's done her best.

    I am learning so much and I want to continue untill we are totally insync with each other.

    That you can do something to a horse or with them 50 times and they can act like its no big deal... but the 51st time.. its like its new and scary allover again and makes them freak out

    K, first the serious ones

    Things horses (Indie included) have taught me these past years;

    1: How to talk without ever speaking a word.

    2: How kindness can outdo aggression.

    3: The accomplishment of hard work.

    4: How to live in the moment, and truly enjoy life's little things.

    5: How to properly invest your time to get to the goal you want.

    And now for the more fun ones

    6: That a apple CAN get you a best friend for the day.

    7: It is possible to feel fear and delight at the same time.

    8: Horses know when you're trying to show off; and seem to enjoy letting you embarrass yourself in front of your peers

    9: Even the most "deadbroke" horse seems to have a "wild" side to them they love to show you when you least expect it.

    10: The more apples in your pocket, the more friends you have! LOL.

    I read in Horse&Rider that kids involved with horses gained better decision making, communicating skills, goal setting, problem solving, and critical thinking. I agree with it too.

    My horse has taught me to bite the bullet and pay $50 (more or less) for stuff pretty routinely, how to put 'groceries' back on a horse, how to keep your cool in a 'spooky' (for him anyways) situation, how to bathe a horse that hates water on his back legs, how to ride a crazy greenie, and turn him into a respectful, and reliable mount (: Even though I had been taking riding lessons for 5 years, and riding for 8, it's never the same as owning your own horse(s). I've learned so much in these past 6 months of owning him.

    Like tianimalz said conversations don't need to be spoken and that horses aren't really all that different from people just a tail and hooves instead of hands
