At the end of the day have you ever reflected on your words or actions and thought “Oh no, did I really say that? If only I could go back and do it over”… As kids, do-overs were a given. Working with horses has helped me realize that – even as adults – do-overs are not only possible, but they’re also welcome. A horse will tell you when you’ve made a mistake, but he’ll whisper it ever so subtly and without judgment. This allows you to start over and try again with dignity and in the spirit of true communication. Next time you say or do something that feels slightly off, remember – you can have a do-over. Even if the other party appears shut down, most humans (and horses) will welcome the new version.
