Knowing that there is always an option to be at a peaceful state of mind in the present moment is priceless. My horse, a 10 year old 1/2 Friesian 1/2 Arabian gelding is totally aware when I become mindful and bring my thinking into the moment. I swear he totally understands the English language. He blows me away with his extreme intelligence. He does what I ask immediately. However, if I am not engaged in the peace of the present moment and try to force him to do things, well he is a totally different horse to encounter. Actually quite scary as he is quite dominant with humans. A bit of an attack horse. So I hope I can become more consistantly calm and in the moment for both of our sakes. Thank you for showing the way more clearly. It could take a lifetime to learn without the guidence.
