Quote for the week


You can get away with lying to others and lying to yourself, but you can never get away with lying to a horse...their eye will always reflect back the truth.
~DOR to her students

It is interesting how people try to fool other people and often manage to do so. Why is it that humans don't listen to that voice that tells them that someone isn't being honest? Maybe it is because they want to believe the best in others, but I think it is because people don't want to truly "listen" to what is going on around them.
The DOR has used her horses to teach her children and students about honesty. She has demonstrated that you can't fool a horse. You can lie to yourself and say you are brave, a horse will know that you are afraid. You can lie to others and say you know things, a horse will know you are a fraud. She believes that if you will use a horse as your mirror you will become a better person.
So look into a horse's eye and see what is reflected back. Listen to what we tell you...do a little horse meditation and find your true self.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
