Twin Pines Equestrian

I am not a machine.

I am not a tool.

I am not an entertainer.

I am not a therapist.

I am a horse.

I have emotions.

I feel pain.

I feel joy.

I feel fear, anxiety, rage, terror.

I feel contentment, affection, calmness.

I feel excitement, enthusiasm, curiosity.

I am a horse.

I am capable of self-expression, self-confidence, self-determination.

I am athletic.

I am proud.

I am playful.—

I am capable of unimaginable beauty.And unimaginable depth.And unimaginable pain.

I have helped build your modern world.

helped -harvest your food.

helped pull your carts.—

I fought your wars.

I am not here to serve you.

I am not here to win your ribbons.

I am a horse

I have sacrificed for your country.—

I have been sacrificed for the pleasure of gamblers.—

I have been put in solitary confinement-kept in boxes, behind bars.I have been whipped. kicked.

Forced to submit my body for human pleasure, without consent.—

It’s not too late to change this.But only you hold the power to make a difference, for I am helpless against the whims of humans.

It starts with seeing me. Really *seeing* me.

As a horse.

As one who deserves love, respect, dignity NOT for what I can do for you, but for who I am.-Kathy Sierra (@pantherflows)
