Re: Aikido and the Path to Better Horsemanship

Great article, Linda! Your experiences with your horse remind me of my experiences parenting. It is a never-ending inner struggle for me to be strong with my kids, and to embrace the role of being the one who teaches and guides. It's easy for me to be the one who nurtures and cuddles, much harder to be the one who sets the clear boundaries and enforces them with confidence! As in all things, I get better at it with practice.
