How can we be our horse’s leader? The first step is to understand general equine nature, and the second step is to understand our own horse’s individual nature. Sharon Jantzen gives us real-riding examples of dealing with four different horse natures.
Every horse we ride or own gives us experiences that shape our lives. Sometimes we don’t see the true gems until we look back. Sharon Jantzen answers her daughter’s question, “Mom tell me about your first horse.”
Tradition and history join hands with progress and development in Portugal at the Golegã National Horse Show – The Showcase of the Lusitano breed. This year Sharon Jantzen was gifted the chance to experience this marvelous show and she brings her memories back to share with us.
The world is filled with horses that have either been abandoned, mistreated or simply thrown away after their “usefulness” has run out. Speak with anyone who has adopted a rescue horse and you’ll likely hear a story that is as uplifting as it is heart wrenching. Sarah Williams meets up with an owner of a rescue horse who realized she was the one needed rescuing too.
It’s something inexplicable…that almost surreal moment when you first look into the eyes of a horse that you know beyond a shadow of a doubt will be your best friend. Grasping the essence of a horse upon first view is like love at first sight; it’s rare, but it does happen. It happened to me. Sharon Jantzen pays tribute to her horse who impacted her life with kindness and sensitivity.
