I believe that our horses choose us, instead of the other way around. I believe that every single being *humans, animals* that come into our lives, come into our lives for a reason - to give us life lessons and gifts that we need, so that we can be that much more complete to move forward on our paths.
Gifts and life lessons that we can take, that make us that much more better of a person than what we were before our paths crossed.
So, with your horse, I believe that your horse has come into your life for a reason - to give you gifts that you needed that could only be given by her, and lessons that you needed, that could only be given by her - and now that your paths have come to an end, she is ready to move on to the next person, so that she can give them gifts that they need - because she has a purpose. A purpose to teach, to give and to love.
My previous horse, was an amazing horse. I loved him dearly, but we just didn't "click" all the time. I had an Animal Communicator come out and read him, and she ended up not only uncovering alot of his past, knowing things she should of known, and shedding light on the situation. He told her, that his time with me was done, and his purpose was to teach. He said I knew all that he could give me, and he must beable to move onto the next person, so that he could teach them.
He is now, at a local barn being a lesson horse. And he couldn't be any more happier than what he is now. He said he is serving his purpose. What he was meant to do.
Nelson, my now current horse - he and I have such a strong bond, it is unbelievable! We have been together for 3 years and we are inseperable. We've been through alot together.
I cannot explain the bond we have, but people at my barn tell me, that when I show up, his eyes light up. I've also had friends, coaches and clinitians ride him, and not beable to do what I am able to do. I've had a 3* eventer tell me that he is a difficult ride and that I make it look easy. I don't believe it has to do with "skill" because I honestly don't have any...I believe it is because of how close we are and the relationship we have between one another.
He's my best friend, my soul mate. My Husband says to me all the time, that I love Nelson more than I do him.
I accept him for who he is, and I know he accepts me for who I am. I can't really explain what it is, or what this bond is - but I know it's there.
I had the same Animal Communicator do a reading on Nelson when I first got him 3 years ago, and she told me a very sad story. A story that I was able to confirm with people who knew him and knew his story. A story that she should of not known - but yet she did.
She told me what I needed and I did the best I could - I just showed him that I loved him and that our relationship was more than just riding. I showed interest in him, his personality, his likes, his dislikes and I did my best to prove to him that I truely cared for him. I had to prove to him that humans weren't all that bad.
3 years later, not that long ago, the same animal communicator came back and the first thing she said to me was "This horse will do anything for you"
So if you are feeling something whenever you are around your horse, don't second guess it, don't discredit it - because you are probobly feeling vibes from your horse, with what they are trying to tell you. Listen, listen closely. 9 x out of 10 you wont be wrong.
If you are feeling that it is time for this relationship to end, then that's what it is. Your horse gave you all she can, and now it's time for her to move on, so that she can bestow her gifts to another person who is fortunate enough to have her in their lives.
