My eyebrows nearly connected with my hairline when I read that nearly all of the most powerful women in history had learned how to command horses. Cleopatra led a pair of horses from a chariot when she wanted to go out a view her vast land. Joan of Arc, commanded armies and conquered countries from her horse’s saddle. Even Margaret Thatcher gave Ronald Reagan advice on what to wear while riding with the Queen of England. And, in modern day, former Chanel CEO, Maureen Chiquet, said, ‘horse whispering’ made her a better boss.
Women start more businesses yearly than men.
Women are holding more c suite positions and leadership roles in the communities as well. Women are working hard to be seen and respected in the business world and the tides are changing.
I know what you’re thinking… I don’t own a horse and horse riding lessons are for the elite and wealthy. Hmmm, exactly what I was thinking when I was first introduced to Equine Therapy.
Why do you think that is?
Why are horses associated with power, wealth, virility and confidence?
Is it a coincidence?
I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe in data– and the proof is in the profits, Lil Lady. Horses will teach you how to overcome any relationship challenge you are having. Even the most difficult ones you wrote off as failed.
