A daughter's account

Today I went to Holistequine with my father. I wasn't sure how the day was going to go, whether he was really interested in going or not. I was quite hesitant...
We went along anyway. When we got there we sat down and Veronica had a chat to dad about a few things, but we pretty much went straight down to work with the horses. Because dad had said he loved big horses, Veronica thought Etta would be the best to work with. Well, Etta had other idea's. When we went to put her halter on she kept running away! Like she was saying, "No, you don't need to work with me today." While I was watching this happen, I kept glancing over at Flicker who was standing there watching.

She reminded me of my dad's mother (who I have not met) for some reason, and I felt she was the one that wanted to work with dad. So veronica asked me if I had another horse in mind. Instantly I said that I think its Flicker. So Flicker toddled over and was ready to have her halter put on. Instantly I saw the connection she had with my dad, and I felt teary because it was like he was going to receive the love that he missed so dearly from his mother who had died a very long time ago. Dad was still very unsure about what he was to do, or what to expect and I could see he was very reserved and skeptical. However within 10 minutes I noticed he was smiling and connecting with her on a different level. I could see his happiness come out of him. I hadn't seen this much happiness for a long time. He cuddled her, and took her for a walk. You could see that she just loved to be with him. As they were walking together it was like a conversation could be going on, just about life and love, and that it was ok to have problems in the past, but the idea is to let it go and walk on. We make mistakes but we can learn from them. If we have to make the same mistake over and over again, it becomes ok when we finally can see what it is that we are not understanding, this gives us the ability to change things and move on.. Flicker gave dad the love that he missed from his mother. Like a reminder that she was still there with him, encouraging him, loving him just as he is.
I think dad needs to know that he is ok, he is full of knowlege and wisdom and love, he just needs to not let the negative thoughts take over, it is a choice, to recognise when the thoughts are having is feel things that we dont have to be feeling. We have the power inside us to know what is right.
After a lot of walking and "talking" it was time for dad to groom her. He stood with her, talking to her, brushing her coat and just bonding with her, giving her cuddles and embracing who she is.
I remember there were times that she would have to show him that she did not want him to do certain things, like touch her constantly or in certain area's. Like she was showing him to be strong and know what he wants, and not to allow other people to do that to him. To use boundaries. No body should do things to you that make you feel uncomfortable. you are in charge of your body, mind and soul. You know what you like and what you dont and what is best for you.
I hope dad remembers these things and applies them to his every day life. He is my father and he is a strong man, I was able to see the "child" in him "grow up" that day. He took a step to make peace with the past. It is just the beginning of this new journey and i am so proud that i can be a part of it.
Watching dad go from reserved to complete love withing a short time was amazing! It was real.
The horses are the only being's that I have ever found to give me the reference I need in life to accept myself where I am at, they show me who I am and give me the ability to love myself. I do not need the approval from anyone. It is all inside me, and the best is shining through each day.
I thank Veronica for her wisdom and her passion to share all this with everyone.
I thank the horses for being so truthful and gracious
