I am super curious to see why and how you got into NH. I had been riding about 4 years when I started working(barn chores) for a woman a herd of mustangs and mules. I just wanted a job that would put me around horses, but didn't expect to find something that would change my whole view on the horse world. The lady taught me everything she knew, mostly Parelli(old version), but random bits and pieces of other NH. I went from forcing horses to do what I say, to joining up and having a real relationship and understanding with them.
I now work with abused and neglected horses and we rehabilitate them and use the for mental therapy for abused and neglected kids. There is the magic that happens when the kids connects with the horses. They share a past of being belittled and beaten, but also share a future of being saved and in a better place. Watching the kids work with the horses is just so amazing and I know that this program would not happen and help heal people if it wasn't for NH.
