What is the magic at play between
horses and humans at Unbridled?
Like humans, horses often struggle to cope with the relentless expectations and stressors placed on them in the domestic world. Horses rarely have the opportunity to live in relationship with humans without the expectation that they serve as beasts of burden, sport or hobby. And humans rarely have the opportunity to interact with horses without the expectation that we should to be in control of the dynamics.
At Unbridled, everyone (horses and humans) are given permission to practice relating authentically - simply as fellow sentient beings. In so doing, we start to remember who we really are - minus the world's expectations and responsibilities.
It's safe to say that the Unbridled farm is a very unusual place. The horses here have no job except to be their true selves. And the humans who visit are given no responsibility except to learn how to honor the horses, themselves and one another for who we each are. In the quiet space that accompanies this type of authenticity, a deep and humbling recognition emerges: we are all one.
And from there, the healing begins...
