Welcome to Making It Work Equine where it is All about the horse


Horses are one of the most forgiving creatures we share our lives with.

They don't hold grudges, they live in the moment and don't dwell on the past. 

They are full of lessons that we can learn. 


They live by instincts and have survived for centuries upon centuries so they must be doing something right.


Horses have taught me more about myself than everyday life has.


The most important lesson to learn about a horse is that


so we get to learn how to think like them.  What a fabulous and rewarding challenge.


So, if you would like to experience the wonders of the horse on a different level,

browse through my site and find out how I can help you experience the rewards of learning.







  1. The reason firehouses have circular stairways is from the days of yore when the engines were pulled by horses.  The horses were stabled on the ground floor and figured out how to walk up straight staircases. 

  2. If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle; if the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes. 

  3. Where did the expression "to get one's goat" originate?  Owners of high strung race horses would place a goat with them to help them calm down. Unscrupulous people steal the horse's goat *friend* in order to upset the horse so it would not race well. 

  4. Draft horses are the strongest animals in the world next to the elephant. 

  5. There are over 300 different breeds of horses and ponies around the world. 

  6. That the practice of mounting a horse from the left side began in ancient Greece.  Warriors always carried their weapons on their left side, which made mounting on the right side impossible.  

  7. Horses produce approximately 10 gallons of saliva a day.
