At Unbridled, we support emotional healing for both horses and humans
via the gateway of empathy.
Just like humans, horses often struggle to cope with the expectations and stressors placed on them by the domestic world. Many horses have never had the opportunity to live in relationship with humans without the expectation of serving as beasts of burden.
When we give ourselves permission to interact with horses as fellow sentient beings (without the power dynamic inherent in most traditional forms of horsemanship), it helps us remember who we were before the world placed its expectations on us too.
Few of us make it to (or through) adulthood without losing touch with who we are.
The Unbridled farm is an unusual place. The horses here have no job except to be their authentic selves. And the humans who visit are given no responsibility except to learn how to honor the horses for who they are. In the quiet space that accompanies this type of empathy, a deep and humbling recognition emerges: we are all one. And from there, the healing begins...
