I am almost packed. The route has been chosen. Food has been stored and sleeping bag aired out.
All of my responsibilities are covered and I am enjoying the luxury of long walks in the mornings, taking some random photographs with no purpose but to be an observer.
I spend so much time by myself. I ride, I walk, I watch TV, I read…I am looking forward to time with like-minded women. Women who have made it their mission to understand the equine mind and its capabilities.
One of my goals for this time in the desert, is to be taught. To be open to the teaching and to understand. Is there science behind the emotional healing that takes place when humans interact with horses? There are results…and that is what I am going to learn about. Some have said to stay away from that supernatural stuff. To me, the concept of horses facilitating healing is the most natural thing.
In five days, I will drive my Toyota to the front gate of Buffalo Woman Ranch. I will pick white sage to perfume my room and let the learning begin!
