My deck overlooks the gelding field in Va so I’ve spent hours watching the horses play. I noticed they like to play a game that involves a lot of head swinging and the first one to move their feet losses. It’s horseplay but they are in fact testing their place in the herd.
So if your horse swings his head around you, he may be testing his place in your herd. Don’t take it personally, just keep your feet planted and use your lead rope to move him back.
It’s kind of like that with people…
Take some Advice from a Dumb Blonde, sometimes those closest to us try to test our boundaries, don’t take it personally just stand your ground!
Why take advice from a dumb blonde? Because when you’re “dumb” life is hard, you have to learn how to navigate in a fast pace world full of clever people. That said, let me define “dumb’, I consider myself a pretty basic human. I’m high functioning in some areas and in not so much in others. I lack the ability to quickly process, which usually means I stand there with my mouth open trying put together what’s in front of me….looking dumb!
In the spirit of full disclosure, I’m not a “true” blonde, I color my hair to match my personality. I’m just a woman thats can relate to being a daughter, sister, kid, teen, young adult, friend, wife, mother, midlife crises (er), work colleague, teammate, barnmate, etc..
I’ve spent years trying to figure out myself and my relationships. One day I started comparing the lessons I had learned from riding my horse and applied them to life. I know it sounds strange but follow me and see how it has changed my life!
