Gratuitous post about me – the person behind the smut…

This is my beautiful Lusitano mare – and a testament to the superb natural & classical horsemanship training I have received and followed over the years from the likes of Monty Roberts, Kelly Marks, Heather Moffett, Grant Bazin & yes even Parelli (although in the NH circles, Parelli is a bit like smut, you either love it or hate it) – she’s had the winter off – yes even horses hate the miserable UK weather & dark nights and tonight we simply tacked up & went out for a short ride (we’re both inexcusably unfit too) – no issues, no drama.

I adore my horse.

There are plenty of analogies I could insert here about  the trust, bond and understanding, mutual faith & unquestioned submission between gentle hand of master and willing partner, and the years of having to prove myself to her as a worthy leader for us to get to this moment of bliss ….but I’ll leave that to my novels ;)
