Min has razor sharp teeth and claws and he loves to play rough. I substitute a toy for my hands and arms but when he bites me by surprise, I say ‘Ouch’ so he learns that he hurt me. Then I ask Min for a kiss so he learns that kisses are better than bites!
Zum saw his first wild deer as I was riding him on a ridge. He froze with panic. I jumped off, pet his neck and tried to calm him down. I led him carefully down the hill to a wash and lunged him in circles. I walked him home as he looked back in terror, snorting and prancing. I got him to the round pen and rode him around until he relaxed. I realized Zum’s fright is very real. It is my job to give him positive assurance.
As the summer comes to an end, I ask myself ‘What are my successes this summer?’ I think of every test that I passed, every obstacle that I overcame and every new skill that I learned with Zum. My two biggest successes were my relentless tenacity in riding Zum even when I was afraid and my belief in myself.
Larissa is my angel on earth. She is an expression of Mother Earth’s perfection and she makes my life beautiful.
Zum is starting to want to rush down hills so I gently stop him. There is joy in discovering, learning and mastering each phase of my challenges with Zum.
Love is my highest destiny. Riding Kamar satisfies my yearning for connection and union, which is another definition of love.
They do not love that do not show their love. I am so grateful that I show my love to Huszar and all my animals each and every day!
My passion for riding Zum is a prelude to experiencing my purpose.
Nothing is impossible to a willing heart. When I play with Min, I feel how willing his heart is to love. I also have a willing heart so I have confidence in manifesting my dreams.
I am speaking and standing up for myself in a more self-empowered way. People that are disgruntled and negative have no place in my life anymore and I let them know it. My driving force to be confident with Zum is manifesting in wanting positive, confident people in my environment.
