Another participant shares about the day's experience,
I really enjoyed this day and it has not left me. It surprised me that I connected with a horse in such a special way. It scared me at first, but I worked through my fear. By the end of the day, I needed no commands to get the horse to start, stop or follow me. We just knew. I also felt no pain until I tried to grasp the spoon (to carry the egg!). But I definitely did not think about the constant burden of my current job and work at all during the day. I lost myself completely in something bigger than me: God, the horse and the experience. I have not stopped thinking about my horse since we met. I would like to visit the farm again on my own.
This was such a wonderful day for the participants as well as for the facilitators and horse handlers. We believe the horses had a good time as well!
