Reiki and Riding: Connections and Reflections


In my work with Reiki and animals, I have always had a special relationship with the horses I have connected with.

I am most fortunate now to have two beautiful horses, both of whom I also consider important Reiki teachers to me: one retired quarter horse, Shawnee, and an 8-year-old Paint named Kodiak. Kodiak and I also work together learning the riding discipline called dressage.

Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.” -Suzanne Clothier
