Advancing Benevolent Horsemanship
When we behave in a way that places the well-being of our horse before our own personal profit, we are advancing benevolent horsemanship. At one extreme, some people might think that means leaving the horse to live out its life unfettered by humans in a thousand-acre pasture. At the other extreme, people might believe that it means helping the horse to perform at its most able competitive level - "to be all that it can be." It is my guess that most of us would agree it means something in-between. Or, maybe, that it means something altogether different. Join me in sharing A Horse In My House. Take what you need, contribute what you know. Share your experiences and the experiences of the horse caretakers around you. Together, we will become more benevolent horse handlers.
