Our mind can’t feel – that’s up to our body. During the workshop yesterday I was moved by how beautifully people talked about how horses made them ‘feel’ – there were even a few tears as we recalled what we had experienced in moments of deep connection with our horses. Even describing how we feel takes us away from feeling those feelings as we wrap clumsy words around something so beautiful and personal.
There was also realisation of how much our thoughts distract us from feeling, especially when our ego hijacks a situation and floods our minds with doubt and judgement.
Give yourself and your horse the gift of fully feeling your moments of deep connection – resist rushing to recall, narrate or describe them – these moments are priceless to both of you x
