September 23rd Reiki
I was so excited to be back at CVTRS, I’ve missed the horses!
Today I started with 2 new horses Casino and Kohlie. They were put in the outdoor stalls and apparently they didn’t reallly know each other so I couldn’t just jump in and do my thing since the horses were curious about each other. I felt that Casino’s energy was a bit off and was probably suppressing some stress. I thought it might be easier to start with Kohlie, who wasn’t too sure what to make of everything had a lot of mental energy going on. Although I noticed while working with Kohlie Casino had calmed down considerably. I held onto Casino’s lead rope and he relaxed quite quickly, he closed his eyes and dropped his head. I felt some tension in my shoulders so I put my hand on his withers and suddenly all of this muscle twitching went through out his body. for the next 5 minutes I touched his neck, shoulder, front leg and back and the twitching continued, finally he shook his head and gave 2 big blow outs. I felt he didn’t want me to let go of the lead rope because he liked the connection but I wanted to give him more space to show me what he wanted so I took his halter off. He followed me around until I stood still and then he positioned himself right beside me and then he moved so his buttocks was right in front of me, he kept backing into me as if he couldn’t get closed enough 😊 I finally had to move off to the side because he was going to eventually push me up against the fence. I could feel he really shifted and was more relaxed he looked like a completely different horse to me.
So I can see that I will be seeing him next week to peel off another layer of tension. It was so satisfying to see that he really enjoyed it and wanted more.
