Build Your Horses Up; Don't Break Them Down

This is the face of a very worried and fearful horse. He's allowing me into positions that make him feel very vulnerable and he isn't confident that my intentions are where I say they are.

Magic at Wild Horse Boot Camp 2018

I’m so grateful for the path thats in front of me.

Wild Horse Boot Camp 2018

We are now going on four months at The Wild Hope and while day to day things feel like they are barely moving forward; there are moments when I am reminded to take a step back and allow myself to feel proud of how it’s coming along.
