Horses heal the soul..........

Horses heal the soul. I know this to be true. This evening was perfect riding weather and I just had to spend time with Belle. We had a fantastic ride and I could just relax and contemplate about things that have been weighing on my mind as of late.

 Recently a dear horse friend (Belle's former owner) needed to find a new home for her beloved horses. She found herself in a place in life that she could no longer have them. She desperately wanted to keep the pair together but had no prospects that she knew of that might take them. She called me in hopes I might know of someone. By chance I did and I along with another good horse friend connected my friend with a fellow horse enthusiast who was interested in taking the pair. This lady had just experienced the loss of her horse and needed to find a new horse. She decided that my friend's horses would be a perfect fit for her family. I am so happy that during what must be an unimaginably difficult time in my friend's life that healing is taking place. She can rest assured that her horses are now in a good home and she no longer has to carry the burden of finding them a safe and loving home.

This whole situation has been on my mind lately. I cannot imagine if I ever had to make the same decision about my horses. I have always been indebted to my friend because she thought her horse Belle would be a perfect fit for our family. Belle came into my life at a time of great personal loss for me and she was a source of healing to me in a way I had never experienced before. I will forever love her for letting go of Belle and giving her to me. I am so glad to have returned the gift of healing and peace of mind that she had given to me through the gift of Belle. I wish the gift of a horse's love to everyone!
