What can Horses teach us about maintaining our boundaries and sense of safety?

Horses are experts at teaching us about consent, touch, and boundaries, just watch a herd and how they interact with one another, you’ll soon see how instantly sure they are about whether they feel safe. Humans on the other hand, we have a very ambivalent relationship with letting someone know that we are uncomfortable with what they are doing. We can become overly sensitive to how the other person feels;  not wanting to upset them, reject them, or afraid that they might not want to be around us anymore if we turn them away,  so we deny how we feel in order to make someone else feel ok.
