I recently purchased this charming Hold Your Horses: Nuggets of Truth for People Who Love Horses...No Matter What (Gift book for adult horse-lovers).
I especially liked this page, with the comment, “This is because a horse not only knows what you know, but he also knows what you DON’T KNOW.”
How true. Here are a few examples.
We might consider ourselves partners of our horses, but they likely see us as oblivious buddies.
Our decisions are no doubt tolerated, with a grain (or a bucket) of forbearance.
When your horse has a good idea, it’s best to go with the flow.
You’ll both reap the benefits.
And at the end of the day, the two of you really will be partners.
