I walked Zum to the end of the neighborhood block, let him graze on some grass and walked him home. He saw lots of horses being ridden and horses standing in corrals. He whinnied and got excited. But he didn’t rear or bolt or panic. I still feel tightness in my chest and a sense of uneasiness when I walk Zum in unknown areas. Anxiety still filters my reality. But Zum and I are working together to overcome our fears.
