Horses, like humans, seek to be in Right Relationship, which is a type of balance. Balancing has three aspects; physical, mental and yes spiritual or the animating force that is the underlining ‘living energy’. All three complete the horse.
On each level, physical, mental and spiritual or animating, there are multiple aspects. For instance, at the physical level are the biological types which give us a deeper understanding of how the horse is physically made.
Each aspect is interrelated to the others. They each influence the overall balance or well-being. So, a horse with a physical ailment, imbalance, will be affected both mentally and spiritually. The negative effect is much more than one might think.
As well, a balanced horse, In Right Relationship, will be one that is naturally ebbing and flowing in all three aspects of its physical, mental and spiritual nature. A horse ebbing and flowing with nature is capable of doing many things other horses can’t.
