My story …
Looking back as a child nobody seemed to have the time for me. Completely attention deficit and a diet of mainly sugar meant I spent more time on my hands and knees pretending to be a horse than a human. Parents arguing, too busy working, meant I craved their love and attention and apart from the thanks for the washing up kid I got little gratification.
Horses were my lifeline, my lifestyle, my love, and my light. They understood my pain and suffering and I theirs.
After years riding and selling horses for other people I decided to connect deeper and learn more about how the horse thinks and feels. After a homeless episode living in my car and abandoned by my family I decided to sleep with the horses and learn about their way of communication gestures and body language. From that moment on everything changed in my life.
The human may let me down but the horse never lies and loved me for me, without ego and without greed. I always thought that what I lacked in education I can make up for in true determination and bravery. Buck Brannaman’s mentor said “don’t treat him like he is ..treat him like you’d like him to be”.
My first real horsemanship experience changed my world and saved my world. Now let me change yours … Victoria x
