Where do we go from here?

I close my eyes and see the perfect moment happening all around me.  My mind clearly takes in the feelings of happiness, pleasure and trust.  I hold out my hand and a group of horses gently prances toward me.  I am atop a hill over looking a glorious landscape of fresh green grass and scattered tall trees.  The breeze swaying the mane and tail of each horse in a rhythm which calms me.  The sound of hooves comes closer as I begin to realize that they are now but a few strides away.  With arm outstretched, the first muzzle with it's sweet prickly whiskers rubs over the surface of my hand.  He is smelling me, getting in touch with this other presence in his field. I stay calm, knowing there are many more noses who yet need to take their turn, so they too may be confident that it is their loyal friend among them.  An individual with only the utmost respect for them.  A person who wishes only to please and allow herself to receive their kindness and playfulness around her. There are at least four now, and I feel a bit crowded in.  Yet one I know well.  I sense my pal, his strength can be noticed by the way he is placing his weight in front of me and the others.  As though to create a protective barrier between us both.  He watches out for the placement of his herd's hooves.  Does not allow them to stomp on my feet.  And so I continue to trust.  I am safe.  I am at the center of attention, and yet they are taking me in as well.  Happiness, pleasure, trust a balance so sensitive, and here in nature, without a worry I have all these feelings within my heart.  I can allow my brain to comprehend the magic of a bond between horses and myself. The mountain top is a place to be myself.  To breath fresh air. To simply be present in the moment.  Have they known all along that as horse, they are capable of balancing the human mind back to center?  Have they over the years provided the affirmation we as humans need to survive.?  Can we, and will we do the same for them? All along I had my eyes closed, now when I open them I want only to know that when there is a time too tough, rough or sad to handle... that with eyes closed and a perfect memory... I can survive and i will be able to help them survive as well.

very well written .. i go thru that evry other day  with my rescues and my stallion in the fields mostly geldings and a few of my bred mares as his harem. he protects me  evry time i enter the gates  as if i am his favorite mare . i let  him know i am not  but that  i am still a friend. he  does the same, shifting  his weight  between me and the rest of the herd. i love it as much as he does i am sure. he's also my favorite ride  bareback  even at my advanced life experience.

At my place it's coming in at night, a beautiful sunset, a backdrop of woods....pure peace at the end of a lousy day! The best for me is just appearing in the field in the middle of the day, all their heads pop up - they come over to greet me, for no reason at all except maybe to welcome me to thier pasture.
