Connecting to the Spirit of the Horse

Indigenous People believe Horses have healing powers, they absorb the sickness and negative energy and even put themselves in harms way to protect the human relative. They know how to release the energy by reconnecting themselves back to Mother Earth (by rolling on the ground or through their manure) Our Horse relatives teach us life lessons. Yellow Bird offers many activities to help us Heal through the Spirit of the Horse.
