The eyes are the windows to the soul
Have you looked into your horse’s eyes lately? What did you see? Your horse? Or yourself?
They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul…so look deep into your horse’s eyes next time. Do you see him, I mean really see him? (I have boys, hence the him) Do you see his generosity, his playfulness, his wisdom, his knowing, his calmness, his steadfast heartbeat?
Or do you see the chore, the irritation, the frustration, the he-does-this-wrong-on-purpose, the stupid horse, the nag?
Have you ever asked yourself what he sees in you? Are you the generous, playful, wise, knowledgeable, calm steadfast person?
Or the hard taskmaster, the irritation, the frustration, the please-leave-me-alone, the unfriendly, the un-wielding?
Make sure you see what you would like to see, and be what you would like to see.
