“Easy There Big Fella” – The Majesty of Equines and The “Beast of Burden” Relationship

Humans have a long history with horses. The beautiful creatures helped us travel long distances, offset the labor of heavy tasks, and served as friend with their gentle spirit and calm demeanor.

We relied on these animals to carry us to where we are today but I think they did more than just provide manual labor, they grounded our thinking and brought into focus something we’re now able to relegate to a long forgotten time and move on.
