Three generations of riders, near Magdalena, NM, July 2012

"Horses are highly perceptive animals and very emotionally connected to other horses and even humans....
"Horses are so good for personal development because they tend to reflect the emotional state of the human." 
(Pat Parelli, in Harnessing the Power of Equine-Assisted Counseling)
Goliath sidles up to nudge Dad, who usually rides him

"Horses are incredible 
for humans; 
they make us 
better people 
by learning 
to put 
grow a solid foundation, 
and dedicate ourselves to 

(Pat Parelli)

"Horses have a remarkable ability to help humans regain confidence, freedom, and a sense of security. Through interaction with them we can learn to connect with our natural wisdom and ultimately become better, more emotionally intelligent human beings."

(Vallerie Coleman, in Harnessing the Power of Equine-Assisted Counseling)

I spend a great deal of my life looking after and training horses. I have learned so much from them as well and they have always been able to refresh my spirit.
