Sometimes people think because they "own" a horse, the horse is supposed to be an ornament or an ego booster.
When things don't go the way they want, they see the horse as doing it on purpose.
The horse is a gift, a blessing, one of the best pathways to personal development I know for those who recognise it as their super power.
This little poster expresses some of my thoughts on the issue:
"The horse is not here to reward your ego, to compete with you, to punish you, to control you. The horse responds to who you are, what you think, how you feel, what you do. The horse is here to enable you to learn how to be a better You - and that is a blessing."
