So, after much deliberation, I have decided to have a communicator come to us on Sunday and see if she can help us sort through some issues....not to mention, I've always wondered what my boy had to say about his life with me in general...I'm hoping he'll be talkative!! I am excited about finding out if/when/where his pain exists, and how I can help him be comfortable. If he likes being a lesson horse, likes to show, likes to trail ride...I want to know what he's afraid of (he is SO brave!), what makes him sad, what things I can do to make him happy. What a wonderful opportunity this is! Some client horses are going to be involved, as well, and I'm looking forward to receiving feedback and input from them, as well. Dancer is a nice filly that I've been working with since she was 6 months old...she is 4 this year. I'm curious to know what her opinions/thoughts are. And, Toi, of course...he will for sure have something to say. He is the boisterous one of the whole bunch. This will be enlightening and hopefully really fun!
Have any of you done this before? What were your experiences (if you don't mind sharing..) and were you a cynic before you did it? If you're not comfortable posting here, you can email me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
