Is it just riding horses or is there somethig more?

Teri and Harley enjoying nature.
We had a wonderful time horseback riding.  It was the first time we had been riding in many years and everything seemed new again, I was truly excited and my heart was full of joy.  I had forgotten how soft a horses muzzle is and how beautiful and knowing their big eyes are.  When the sweet horse I was on started to trot, I was having so much fun, I started laughing and couldn't stop.  Of course I was holding on the saddle horn with all my might thinking I was a long way up and might fall off.  Amazing animals, so gentle and sweet, I was honored he allowed me to ride him.

As a girl growing up we always lived in town, one summer I persuaded my parents to allow me to go to horse camp.  We learned to care for, saddle, and ride horses.  My favorite part was, well actually the entire experience from greeting the horse in the morning, saddling up and preparing for the ride, then cool down,currying and cuddling my friend was one of those forever experiences.

I know many of our readers are cat people, personally I am a dog person, as a child I watched the Cisco Kid, John Wayne, and Clint Eastwood as Rowdy Yates they all had a special relationship with horses I could only begin to imagine.

Have you ever thought about playing with horses?  Seems that would take fun to a new and exciting level. Our friend Lila has the joy of working with horses each day but more than that she helps people understand the relationship between themselves and their horses in a profound and loving circle of respect.

The lessons you learn from Holy Horse Encounters are life lessons that transcends your time with the horses, they will facilitate "personal growth, clarity, and empowerment."

To find out more about befriending horses on an entirely new level I invite you to explore Lila's website, the perspective is new.  I have been told Lila can take a horse that has the most disagreeable behavior and befriend it in a matter of an hours. 

The next time I am in Utah I will be sure to take a class with Lila.
