I usually locomote in the comforts of my patio when I’m having a bad day; I make inept attempts to slow down my heart rate. The muffled sounds of the sea whisper minute breaths of refreshment into my ears. In that moment, my metabolism retards only to extol the briny perfume of the viridian-blue waters. It’s so good to be alive. Quite unintentionally, we consign this feeling into oblivion. It’s the feeling of absolute emancipation. I wouldn’t have an intruder wearing boots with sharp and queer protrusions approach me with bridles, halters and stirrups .
Now say, I do.
I wouldn’t have this absurd looking creature fit the bit into my mouth and yank me along. Almost instantly, my instincts would summon me to flail my limbs in all directions to extricate myself from this minion-like creature, half my size. I’d rather be wild than not be free. Inevitably, horses are creatures who hold utmost respect for their riders. You would seldom see a horse flail its limbs in the aforesaid way. But these wild creatures did not take birth in stables. If you mount a horse and feel that the level surpasses your expertise, then you must instantly dismount. If we add a more pragmatic dimension to this, we do have the largest brain mass relative to body mass. And this is especially pronounced in the neocortext, a region of the brain accounting for 76% of the total mass and involved in consciousness and language. In short, your could solve the most complex of equations, problems, and enigmas. The point is, your smarter than this colossal creation of god.
Now, if you still blame this creature after having access to all the safety procedures and equipments, you don’t act like the placeholder of the topmost level of hierarchy. As owners, we need to recognize the type of horse we have and approach training accordingly.
