Why not money or fitness or clothing or cooking. Maybe you have a passion for multiple things. But why did horses spark that flame for you?
For me, I remember the moment like it was yesterday. I was eight years old standing on top the toes of my older brothers shoes because the dew on the morning grass was too cold for my bare feet. It wasn't even light outside yet but a small glow inside me began to grow. I had no idea how big that small glow would become at the time but I distinctly remember how my heart and mind shifted. On the ground, not more than twenty feet away, was young mare, my older brother's mare, giving birth to a baby filly we later named Trish. I watched the whole thing, partly in awe and partly in shock. I'd never seen anything like that and wasn't sure I'd ever want to again. But something in me stirred and a passion for horses was sparked. Fast forward nearly thirty five years and I'm still writing about horses, still teaching people to be natural with horses, still passionately pursuing my dreams with horses.
When was your moment? What sparked your flame? Tell me in the comments below.
