Horses lift our spirits
“We will never have to tell our horse that we are sad, happy, confident, angry, or relaxed. He already knows – long before we do.” – Marjike de Jong
From Dawn's Diary
"Horses are my passion, freedom my spirit." - 12-year-old cowgirl
In her diary, Dawn writes horse quotes like these:
What is the Perfect Horse? I’ve daydreamed of a majestic white stallion with a flowing mane. But I think the Perfect Horse probably has a few scars. He’s probably been hurt but overcame it. He’s more like a teacher and a friend.
The Perfect Horse lets you feel what it’s like to gallop into the ocean waves, chase cows, or play tag.
The Perfect Horse will buck you off when you deserve it but wait for you to get back on.
The Perfect Horse has flaws, just like us humans;
The Perfect Horse knows that you can’t become a skilled horseman if everything goes your way.
The Perfect Horse will challenge you. He will teach you what you need to learn.
The Perfect Horse is tough; He will race when he’s too tired and jump obstacles that are too high. But, he can take up the challenge due to your ignorance or youth. He will make you reflect in amazement years later on what he did for you.
The Perfect Horse is not a superhorse. He may go lame or suffer from an abscess. But he will teach you there is more to horsemanship than riding.
The Perfect Horse will forgive you when you make mistakes and expects you to do the same. He will do his best to please.
The Perfect Horse needs food and water and clean shelter. He will teach you to work hard, but it will be worth it.
The Perfect Horse may not be the prettiest or the fastest, but he has the most heart. So when he wins a ribbon, you know he deserved it.
The Perfect Horse loves a good carrot and a pat on the neck. That is his greatest reward; A little treat, a pat of love, and appreciation from you is what the Perfect Horse thrives.
