I've loved and ridden horses for more than 30 years now, but it wasn't until I started riding with Carol Nichols that I realized how much I really get from being around horses. Regardless of what my mood is when I arrive at the stable, I'm always happy by the time I leave. Being around horses reminds me to be in the moment, and not worry about the past or the future. Horses are also incredibly honest, and because they mirror us, they tell me things about myself that I would never realize otherwise.
