    Horses are priveliged livestock to me. I enjoy their company and taking care of them and riding when I can but for the most part, I value my dogs more than my horses.

    My horse is the solution to all my problems. (except financial XD)
    I see people with issues, problems, broken hearts, and my first thought is always "they need a horse" But I know that is unrealistic because there are so many people who own horses that don't see them for the treasure they are.

    My horse is my best friend. I relate to her in a way that no one else has ever related to me. I feel like I've become a much better person, my horse makes me want to be a better, more patient, more loving, smarter person. I've gotten away from thinking about "owning a horse" but thinking about the equal love shared between horse & rider... it isn't an "ownership," but a real friendship.

    They are my strength of will and mirror into the soul. I used to have Black Stallion-syndrome/Barbie pony syndrome, and I made a lot of mistakes with many horses because I just wanted to look cool riding a pretty horse in front of all my friends. All my life I've been told I can't have a horse, can't work with horses, I'm doing everything wrong, I should just stop working with horses and do something else. All of the roadblocks I've met have taught me something way deeper. I've questioned everything I thought about horses, about animals, and about humanity. Working with horses isn't just fun for me, it's about pushing the limits of human psychology and placing myself in a position that's so wild and unnatural to humans, but that somehow feels strangely like home. The only thing that separates us from animals is speech, and when we form that bond with horses that's unlike any other, we're speaking to them. What they say back is what makes it look like magic.

    I guess I kinda take it overboard =P

    Horses are a big stress reliever. The minute I get on a horse's back, all of my stress goes away. Even if its a complicated/difficult to ride horse.
