Meditation with Horses: Setting the Bond

Meditation with Horses forms the firm foundation for true Liberty with Horses. If I were to choose the most important of the Liberty Foundations, I believe I would choose the first Foundation: Meditation. This is where the relationship between you and your horse begins, where it deepens and nourishes the Open Bond, and where you…

Wording: The task is to write a book covering one hundred life stories from the rescue of the wild herd until Darling’s Sunset.

Blue Moon Musings

Today, at sunset, I went to the beach with my family to watch the moonrise. It’s Friday morning or afternoon for most of our readers, and it is already night in Australia, where we live.

A night to remember

Do you know the feeling you get when finding out someone else speaks your language? Or when something you are looking forward to finally happens? June 14th 2015 was a day I looked forward to for many reasons, and that was even truer during the night before. Instead of sleeping, I was laying down in…
