If I could make a living doing what I love most, I would be educating the public on the benefits of horses. They are used for muscle therapy, character building, and many other valuable things. Horses have changed the lives of children, and even adults, with autism and other learning disabilities by teaching them to be independent and more outgoing. They have helped children with behavioral issues, teaching them to trust another being and to be dependable caring for something other than themselves. Horses have also been beneficial in my own life, keeping me out of trouble and giving me something to look forward to. I use my own horse, Baby, when I introduce my friends to horses. Most are afraid of Baby because she is a powerful creature, but her kind nature quickly changes their opinions. If I were able to continue spreading equine knowledge, I could change the world for people with disabilities. Learning to trust and care for a horse is a simple, yet meaningful task. This would reinforce self-confidence, and instill a love for animals. We could help improve body and mind functions in all people, moving towards a brighter future.
