About Cindy and Thomas Jarrett and HorseJourneys

"Let beauty we love be what we do" -- Rumi

Her Story

My horse journey began with being born, Year of the Horse. The messages and medicine of horses has been coursing through my veins and soul before I could speak. This lifetime has been all about preparing for being a voice for the horse.

Growing up in the city mostly lent itself to contact with horses at fairs and local stables. It was no accident that my whole childhood's focus was on watching horses, getting to those fairs or stables on my weekends, or just pretending to be one. I didn't realize I was preparing for something greater than my child's mind could begin to comprehend.

It wasn't until I was 24 and newly graduated from college that I was able to have my first horse. Abu El Rashid (which means "rightly guided father") and I were inseparable and joined-up from day one. Upon acquiring him I couldn't wait to play with him like another horse. I had practice at this game. Once arrived at his new stable, I groomed and washed him and turned him out in the large arena and began to prance and dance with him. He matched my every move and whinnied with delight. Ahhh, for a camcorder.

No one called it dancing with horses back then. In that first day he took me into his heart and he fell into mine. We moved to Kansas together where I was able to live a hay field away from him and watch him from my kitchen window. This is where my telepathic communication with horses began.

I was able to feel and sense what my horse was thinking and feeling. He clearly conveyed images and feeling states. He showed me his loneliness and how he needed a partner. This is when I bought him a beauty of a buckskin mare - Sunshadow. I was a complete novice, but I learned everything I know about horses - from my horses.

I was graced for nine years with these amazing beings before I let them go to pursue my relationship with my husband and career expansions. And now coming full circle, I return to my souls' roots and am in the good fortune of working with Horses as powerful partners, co-teachers - in the ways of the heart.

About Thomas Jarrett

I always knew I would end up living with horses because Cindy made me promise before marrying her, that one day I'd help her get back into the world of horses and buy a horse ranch.

Although not a former horse owner, I am also born Year of the Horse, and am a double Sagittarius. Horses do instantly feel like my brethren and horse medicine comes naturally for me.
