Always such a pleasure to have Sarah Schlote, founder of EQUUSOMA™ back on the podcast! In this follow-up episode (check out Episode 21 and 24 for an intro to her work), we found ourselves speaking to the very real experiences of horse people as we move through a pandemic, especially when we can't see our horses, and/or ride, and how to be with this change in a healthy way. Sarah unpacked her Horse Time from Home article, and shared so much gold about what can support us through this challenging time, and how we can resource our horse connection even when we can't be with them. This podcast is full of cutting-edge resources (scroll down to find the list) - Sarah is as thorough as they come!
