Summary

Horses have roamed and survived on our earth for 50 million years, accredited to their incredible instinctual ability, unmatched by any other prey animal. In addition, horses exhibit superior social skills and have a lot to teach us.

They don’t care about how much you know; all they need to know is how much you care and that you show up as the best version of yourself.
