When asked about ways to enhance the equine-human bond, I tell people about one of my favorite pastimes with my horse Romeo… “Pasture Meditation.” This means that after our walk-abouts or after riding, Romey gets turned out……he has his pasture time and I have my quiet time.
There are some days when we visit during his turnout. No words are spoken, no expectations are placed…it’s a kind of zen of doing nothing and we both thrive on these moments of peaceful union.
There are other days when I relax on my bench, surrounded by the pastures, the sounds, smells and serenity of nature…Romey and I occasionally checking in with each other from a distance. These Pasture Meditations are how we strengthen our bond, practice our telepathic communication and nurture our deep love and respect for one another.
