Horses can teach us a great deal about Life: all we need do is observe their lives and listen to their words of Wisdom. The eyes of a horse are the windows into profound insight, if we humans can just slow down long enough to gaze into these deep pools of knowledge.
So every now and then, capital-W Wisdom comes my way, and I feel compelled to share. These insights usually come oozing in because I've been around a horse, or a horseperson (who passes on the knowledge, second-hand from her critter). Not that I fancy myself to be a font of Wisdom, but I catch glimpses of it in the breeze every now and then. I reach out, grab it, process it and pass it on when it seems appropriate.
Lots of the things that pass for Wisdom these days--isn't. Celebrities spout personal platitudes, often inane--but because they're famous and the words are written in exotic fonts--they get a book deal.
You won't get a book deal by participating in "Horse Sense" here on Saratoga.com, but you may make some friends who appreciate the Wisdom that you share here. Please do make comments about the column, and please share your own Wisdom! It's by reading and exchanging ideas that we learn about Life: we can create here a community of Horse Sensible People. How cool is that?
