There may be nothing that epitomizes the human dilemma more poignantly than the plight of the horse.

Many humans are beginning to reflect deeply on our behavior and choices in relationship to the horse. Not only do we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to horses for bending their bodies, minds and spirits to accomplish every task we've asked of them... but by slowly eradicating wild horses we've been robbing our planet of a keystone grazing species that's crucial to the long-term health of grassland ecosystems, and has been for millions of years. 

If we can find it in ourselves to finally become the partner species horses deserve, perhaps it will be our relationship with the horse that saves humanity (and helps heal our planet) in the end?

At this pivotal moment in human history, I choose conscious evolution.

 

 

Putting it in Perspective: 

Humanity’s fateful decision to harness horsepower (beginning around 3000BC) and redirect it toward conquering landscapes and waging wars against one another, launched our species into a dark chapter. For the past 6000 years, the human species has been driven by a seemingly unquenchable thirst for power and control beyond our own physical abilities. And it all coincided with our conquering of the horse.   

In time, technology usurped even the horse’s ability to satisfy our relentless quest for greater and greater levels of power and control.

But during the millenniums when humans wed ourselves to horsepower, something unexpected happened:

The horses themselves won our hearts.

And because of this, even though we no longer need actual horse power to fuel humanity's relentless pursuit of "progress", many humans across the globe still revere the horse. Unfortunately, we've been expressing our love and gratitude in very unhealthy and self-serving ways by keeping horses captive, selectively breeding them for our purposes, and treating them as slaves of hobby, sport and equestrian commerce.  

Fortunately, the story of the horse-human relationship doesn't have to end here.

Together we can envision and create a different future. One where horses are honored as the deeply feeling, highly intelligent sentient beings they are and respected for the critical role they evolved to play on our shared planet. We can choose to focus on being in relationship with horses in ways that help us remember what it means to be part of the healthiest herd on Earth: the community of life. 


 

"The next step in human evolution is not inevitable, but for the first time in the history of the planet, it can be a conscious choice. Who is making that choice? You are.

And who are you? Consciousness that has become conscious of itself."

What People are Saying about Kim's Work:

Kim is ahead of the times. Indeed, we need to learn (or more accurately remember) how to respect all things and live more in harmony and peace with the Earth and all of her creatures. The horses are perfect teachers for this and appear so willing to teach us. I am in constant gratitude for Kim's willingness to work with the horses and share her wisdom with all of us. It is my hope that as people learn to change their relationship with the horses, it will open up their minds to changing their relationships with the air and water, the plants and animals, and other people. We are living in a time of such individualism and the belief that we can just blink and manifest everything we want. Therefore, we are in desperate need for the knowledge Kim brings forth. Unfortunately, there is currently  very little value in things like community consciousness, gratitude, and generosity. And yet, we live on this beautiful planet with a system that gives so much and demands so little. It is my hope that Kim's work will continue to grow and bring deep truths to all humans. It is also my hope that Kim's business will prosper and that others will come to her farm and learn how to share horse medicine.  May we all have the opportunity to stand still in field, with a herd of horses, and just learn how to be in symbiosis with all things."
