Equestrian Life is an online community for horse people.
We bring together horse people across all disciplines, breeds and sports.
We invite you to connect with others who love horses as much as you do.
I was attracted by how being on a horse is so calming. They know what you are feeling and they adjust to those feelings. I love going out and just being with my horse, but i love riding him more. It takes all my stress out when I get on him to either go for a long ride or a little walk around the block.
I was always attracted to horses since I was a small child - like a bee to honey. There's something very spiritual about being in their presence. I feel like I know myself better when I'm with a horse. It's hard to explain. It's something that you just have to experience when you ride or when you're just being with horses in general. The kind of feelings and emotions that horses invoke are nothing like from a dog, cat, or any other animal. I don't consider horses to really be a pet. They are more like good friends or children - something that you can love, train, and learn from. Horses have taught me some of the best life lessons that no other teacher has ever been able to teach to me. I still feel so excited when I see a horse when I pass by them on the road - just like when I was a little girl.
i think its just the beauty, and majesty of them. even though they are so large, they are gentle, quiet, and graceful. they dont demand anything from those around them, and are willing to give everything they have. something some humans could learn from. :)
