This coming Saturday I’ll be doing a demonstration at the grand opening of a beautiful new local barn and boarding facility. I’ve been thinking about what I want to say. What keeps returning to mind is to share with people that I lead with my heart. If the horse doesn’t feel my loving approach, the rest will be muted. I have loved all my personal leaders and mentors, especially when they have asked something of me and expanded my limits. Is this true of horses? They don’t have a frontal cortex, but my horse Skigh relaxes with me when we do something new, and we succeed. I’ll just call that love for now. If you live in the Denver/Boulder area, please come to this event–food, music, horses, and camaraderie!
