- I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. (In my professional career life, I am an associate professor and academic library director at a university. Which is how I support my horse habit!) I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. Although I've been around horses my entire life, I started Parelli Natural Horsemanship in November 2003 but didn't start this blog until May 2006. I currently am an official Level 3 student (I am not too good at getting my official assessments done - not a fan of being videotaped.) I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, Reiki, Photonic Health Red Light Therapy, Young Living Essential Oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, Bach flower essences, and more. Natural Horse Lover Farm is located in Northern New York between the St. Lawrence River and Adirondack Mountains. Heaven on Earth. naturalhorseloverfarm.com

Meditating with Your Horse
Have you ever thought about meditating before playing with your horse? What about meditating with your horse? WHY NOT?! What a great way to partner and communicate. I love the idea of meditation and Reiki with my horse on the ground and in the saddle. It creates a connection like no other. The way in which you chose to meditate is certainly an individual one. What the desired effect is of course is a happy horse and a happy human!
And, if you don't know how to meditate, why not just spend some undemanding time with your horse....you remember this lesson from Parelli, right? I've written about it many times. CLICK HERE to read an old task challenge I wrote about giving your horse undemanding time. The point is, there is way more to you owning a horse than just riding, it is a relationship you should build on and find creative ways to do so. I am getting a diffuser and essential oils specifically for the barn because I use them in the house on a regular basis and cannot share! :) I love the addition of aromatherapy to the mix. Just this morning I gave Morgan, my Great Dane Reiki and used YL Lavender on her...she loved it.
Here are some recommendations for meditation oils. There are many more singles and blends. Please see the links below as they have a lot of information about this. The prices I listed are the retail price, not wholesale. Wholesale is cheaper but you’d have to buy a starter kit and have a wholesale account. If you did decide to do that, the premium kit (best value, $150) has a diffuser which would be really nice for setting up a space for meditation. (FYI – 5mL bottles of Peace & Calming, Frankincense, and Thieves are included in the premium kit’s everyday essential oils set.)
