Even the horses that, as my friend said, are “the spawn of the devil” have things to teach us. Sarah Williams gets three friends to tell their stories of horses who left an interesting impression.
For many of us, selling our horse simply isn’t an option, even if we’re eating Top Ramen to save enough money to pay for our feed bills or running ourselves ragged trying to get to the barn for 30 minutes before the sun goes down just to keep our horses in shape. Many don’t realize that there are alternatives to selling that are “win-win situations” for all involved. Sarah Williams sits down with her friend and helps her choose a horse lease alternative to selling her horse.
Is second place, third place or even Top Five really losing if you put in a performance that you are happy with and your relationship with your horse is getting stronger? Remember, the winning attitude says that “winning” isn’t always a ribbon or title, it’s a progression of your skills and it’s a manifestation of your personal best. Sarah Williams explores what being a winner with horses means.
Summer romances happen in the horse world too, you know. Sarah Williams spoke with three of her horsey pals who talked about their most memorable “summer horsey romances” with those special horses that, however briefly, shaped and ignited their horse passion.
Our horses are some of the best teachers that we will ever have. What they illustrate so beautifully in their innocent and trusting way, we can apply to our own lives a thousand times over. There are lessons that only our horse could teach us better than anyone else if we’re open to listening and understanding them. Sarah Williams appreciates the three lessons her horses have taught her.
