“My horse’s feet are swift as rolling thunder
He carries me away from all my fears
And when the world threatens to fall asunder
His mane is there to wipe away my tears.”
“All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay,
and he’ll listen to me any day.”
How does the equestrian world reconcile its extreme differences, where for every horse in the winner’s circle there are 600 more headed to a slaughterhouse? Where there can be a $70 million horse and yet 170,000 unwanted horses? It does so with compassion. Because for every selfish owner, there are many people at horse rescue operations and therapeutic ridings centers who understand horses have healing powers of their own. This episode is more about saving ourselves. This episode will feature organizations like Bravehearts, Pegasus Therapeutic Riding Center, Save The Horses, Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center, Pure Thoughts Horse Rescue, and others who show how horses can help us overcome physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges such as autism and post traumatic stress disorder. Horses can be mirrors for us, revealing our deepest emotions, and helping us to overcome our deepest troubles and pain.
Never underestimate the heart and soul of The Equestrians.
