About: Herd

This is a sojourn in a world where horses breathe into the human spirit and wipe the dust off the holy grail in each human soul. Leading the way is one very wise and regal horse named Apolinaire with his traveling companions and tools — his herd, one dog, all the wildness of nature that surrounds us, and the artistic expressions of human imaginations.

The horses have come to the ranch with their own crosses to bear. Some were abused, a few have physical issues, others were labeled no longer of use…but they do not remain victims. All have found their way here for something more important, fulfillment of a new purpose. They have come to be the “main act” in the unfolding exploration of the spiritual interactions between horses and humans.

Though they have frequent contact with me and other humans, they have been allowed to live as freely as possible as domesticated animals, with minimal human dominance. Riding is not important with this herd at this time. They have taught me that the less we impose our will on theirs the more cooperative they become, not in order to serve the human will but to find mutual purpose and synchronicity. Living in this atmosphere of freedom and mutual respect, the mystical qualities attributed to the horse through history are revived and flourish once again in an environment that allows and acknowledges their spiritual gifts.

These horses who have been rescued have become rescuers. They restore in the human heart that which has seemingly been lost. They call us to live from our spirits, allowing the divine and the supernatural to merge with the ordinary events of daily life. They call us to linger a little bit longer in those brief moments of joy, peace, contentment, love, and ecstasy that spontaneously find ways into our lives; those deeply personal gateways into the mystical.
