A Horse’s Heart Remembers Under the Sun What We Have All Forgotten

As the wild heart of the horse
remembers where it came from,
a place in the beginning
where all spirits were free and alive, and loved under the sun.

At a horse show on the weekend, I am always amazed how gentle and giving the heart of a horse is even when we take away their freedom. Maybe understanding the heart of a horse could help us better understand ourselves.

  1. I think that is true for all animals, both domesticated and wild.

  2. What you wrote is so beautiful! We all really need to view animals and nature with that kind of love and compassion. Nice picture, too!

  3. My friend has just been certified in a practice that uses horses in therapy with people – no riding involved. She, and the horse riders in my family, will love this poem. I so agree with you, we have so much to learn from the heart of a horse. I’ll share this on my facebook page!

    • Awe, thank-you. My heart goes out to all animals with so much compassion and patience for us, especially when their freedom is taken for our measures. I have a daughter that rides, and I am very grateful and humble in their presence. I’m still trying to learn from them and her more so.
