    Hmmm, good question. It is my life. I make money with my horses, I work with them every day. Training them and teaching other people to enjoy horses is one of the best feelings in the world, it is a certain lifestyle me and my partner choosed to live and even though it is not a big profit we can take care of all our horses, spend as much time with them as possible and are responsible for their health and well beeing, training and making our horses a joy for other people as well! I see them as a friend and kind of like family but I most certainly know that they see me as their herd leader! Even if I would get out of the "horseback riding business" I would never giving up beeing a horse owner, it gives you so much and you learn so much about others, yourself and the animal and they can teach you more than any human could ever teach you!

    My horses are my escape from the uglier parts of my life. They're a ray of sunshine. They're projects and puzzles for me to work on. They're a best friend when you need a hug. They're athletes and have taught me so much about discipline and self control.

    My therapy. They're the reason I'm alive today. They're my life. They're my teachers. Sometimes my reality check. My escape from the rest of the world. The friends that are always there. My shoulders to cry on. They're my happiness.

    My horses are a big part of my life. They motivate me to get off the couch and get outside even if the weather is -20C. They rely on me to take care of them and they give me so much in return. They are my confidants and my strength even when I'm not feeling strong. They have taught me so much about so many things. I immediately feel better once I get to the barn and can feel the stresses of the day melt away. They are irreplaceable.

    My horses are my Everything. My best friends, a neck to hug, ears to listen, and shoulder to cry on.

    Being a horseowner is one of the things from which I draw my identity. (Wife and dancer being the other two if anyone was curious.)

    My horse is my family, he never tell my secrets and is always there when I need him. Horses make me the man I am today

    I can write an essay on this lol but Ill try to keep in short...

    My horse is my Teacher, she has taught me honesty; she never lies and wont allow me to either

    She has taught me Trust; I can lead her anywhere, she looks to me when she is unsure and asks me if it's OK or how to act

    She has taught me Communication, I have learned how to understand her and she understands me, all without talking

    She has taught me Spirit, even when the odds were against her, she survived (Multiple times)

    She has taught me Confidence, I have always been "shy" to an extent that kept me from being a leader; I am her leader

    She has taught me forgiveness; When I got her she was unridable, now 6 months later, yes, she is a kids lesson horse :) And trust me to have kids mess up all day takes forgiveness and she loves her job too

    She is my Confident; I can tell her anything, she listens, with some rather odd facial expressions lol, and she doesnt judge

    She is my escape; I can relax and just "be" when Im with her

    My therapist; you gotta vent to someone

    My relaxation; we all need an escape Lol

    My determination; I am determined to bring her to her full potential and myself at the same time

    My phone is dying so I have to stop here but I could keep going lol

    PM me if you want specific examples :) And Good Luck on your project :)
