Almost every time I tell someone that I partner with horses, they tell me a two part story. First they speak of how beautiful, majestic and impressive the horses are and how they love them. And then they tell me why they are afraid of them. They tell a story from the distant past as if it were happening today. Horses have that visceral effect on humans.
As flight animals, horses are masters of fear. This theme is not about overcoming the fear of horses or overcoming any fear. It is about being able to stand in fear, to calm and lead yourself and to find courage from fear.
