Life Through the Senses
services for every horse, in every discipline, from anywhere…
“Harmony with their environment and contentment with their peers, this is the natural desire of every horse, and a common thread between us. Where investing in the physical horse is essential, an investment in the emotional horse is priceless. For it is not the horse’s responsibility to understand our nature, it is our responsibility, to understand theirs.” ~Kerry M Thomas
