We say a horse is like a mirror, reflecting our thoughts and feelings. If we’re happy, or we’re scared, they sense it. While this reflection is certainly true, a horse can be much more than a mirror. A horse often shows me what I do not see. Working with horses, they can offer us a picture of our true nature, revealing characteristics and qualities in us that we didn’t even realize existed.
