Although I often write these horse stories to talk about my experience with these magnificent creatures, but I received a note from one of our visitors about HER experience, and I decided to let her words speak for themselves.
Here is the story of Cindy and her dog Simon, and how Hawks Landing helped heal both of them!
I was totally enjoying the warm sunny day, walking among my herd. I could feel the horse energies from the smallest to the biggest of all the horses. Being in the present moment with them is a valuable tool they have taught me. What a glorious day to be lost in my thoughts.
I came back rather quickly from being lost in the moment as I could hear the shrieking voice of my niece calling me.
Lady Edelweiss a black thoroughbred born on April 20, 1989. At a year old she was put into training for the racetrack. The track was her fate for as long as her health, heart, and legs stood up.
But fate had other plans for this beauty! As she was put into training her owners found that she would not make it as a racehorse…Lady Edelweiss was too slow!
At the age of two Lady went up for sale! It didn’t take long to re home this Beauty cause Beautiful she was. Her new owner now put her into training for a hunter/ jumper. And boy did this young thoroughbred love to jump. This was her calling. She could sail over the jumps; she was so eager she would jump higher than she had too. With this attitude it made her a tough horse too ride. She was very excitable and just so darn eager. Her owner loved her dearly, but Lady was just too much horse for her. With great sadness on June 28, 2001 Lady was re homed once again.
