First Kiss-GinaLijoiThank goodness horses don’t hold us accountable for every misstep we take! We have bad days and are in a hurry. Or maybe we get stuck on doing something ‘just so’ and miss the opportunity to learn something other than what we are focused on. Or maybe we forget to have fun! But our horses don’t hold that against us. Each time we interact with them they give us the chance to start over. Unless they have been very badly treated, and have become fearful, horse don’t hold grudges. This non-judgemental acceptance is an important part of the work we do. Our clients find that who they are in the rest of their lives doesn’t matter to their horse. They too can start over with a clean slate and build the relationship they want with their horse.
