The beautiful thing is, you don’t need to ride to feel that loving connection. When I was 8, I adopted a horse with the World Horse Welfare (check them out guys, they’re AMAZING) and as a birthday present, my mum drove me the three hours to go and meet her in person. She was one of the most beautiful, magical and wonderful little angels that I’ve ever met, and when we looked into each other’s eyes, it was as if we were sharing our stories with one another. She was very gentle, calm, placid. She slow blinked at me gently as I rubbed her gorgeous flash. As it happened, she was an abused race horse so I wasn’t able to ride her anyway. But I didn’t need to. I’m sorry to get so cheesy but, we were one in that moment. And I know that anyone who has ever had the chance to get close to a horse will know exactly what I mean when I say that. It’s literally such a powerful and magical experience.
You will be just fine without having to ride. You can meet so many gorgeous horses and bond with them in your own ways! Why not go down to your local rescue/sanctuary and meet them? Even though you can’t home one, you could still visit them and maybe even volunteer!
Either way, don’t worry about a thing. You will feel that fantastic bond again. Just you wait.

I would suggest sticking to staple snacks so that you’ll be full but so that you don’t have to go out of your way to cook!
What are some quick and easy vegan snacks? Suggestions for you! :)
No, you’re not wrong to call yourself a vegan. As I always say, veganism is about doing the least harm possible and right now, that’s all that’s possible for you. Pro tip though- you can get lots of D3 from shiitake mushrooms, fortified soy milk. fortified cereal, fortified orange juice and fortified tofu. The best way to absorb it though that beats any of these is through the sun! :)
Not at all. Veganism is about causing the least harm possible and eating soya, tofu, tempeh, seitan etc is causing non human animals no harm at all. As for faux fur, yes it is but do be careful as a lot of companies will go out of their way to lie about the legitamacy of their fur! xx
It’s not ignorant sugar! :) Raw veganism is exactly what it says on the tin really… it’s one who follows an almost entirely raw vegan diet and does not eat anything processed (lots of home made food).
No but now I’m going to Google the shit out of it!
