Voice for the Horse

Sponsorship – Joy Richarson

Hello, my name is Joy Richardson and I have been an Ambassador of Voice For The Horse since 2010. It has been an absolute privilege to witness the growth of this project since its conception in 2007. To transition into equine inspired, theme based music productions has been most exciting to see in this past year, and I am thrilled this year’s theme song is reflective of war horses who with their great hearts, fought for us and our perspective countries. I myself was involved in WW 2 in the Navy with the position of Driver; delivering both injured soldiers and those not so fortunate to survive, the enemies attack.

Growing up with horses in my life brought me to believe they are the closest animals to human beings. If you stand quietly beside one in his stall or out in a paddock, perhaps gently stroking his shoulder, he will look directly into your eyes. If you remain there for several minutes and you may receive the most incredible relationship with this caring and intelligent animal. The warmth they share is surely from Heaven where horses retire at the end of their lives. Horses have great hearts which means they truly do Horses are the closest animals to human beings.

The warmth they share is surely from Heaven where horses retire at the end of their lives and those of us who love them, know we will find them waiting for us. Horses have great hearts which means they truly do understand ours if we are gentle and considerate of their lives. 

Yvonne and Joy have the common interest of being proactive in their efforts to promote the horse and the humane and ethical treatment of them. Joy has attended alongside Yvonne at various events promoting both Spirit Garden and Voice For The Horse.

Many horses are neglected, often by ignorant handlers, ill fed, beaten and given terrible loads to carry on their backs, or made to drag along heavy loads across the land. There is nothing so special as a close relationship between a horse and a human. Whether out riding out in the country side, alone or with a group of friends, the pride the horse shows to a caring rider is surely one of the deepest relationships within this world. He loves to show his affection by quickly absorbing the gentle encouragement of his rider by a soft squeeze of the lower leg to move to another gate. He loves to be asked to gallop, extending his body swiftly, extending his body swiftly forward, his mane flowing proudly along his neck.

The Voice of a Horse brings into our lives the very essence of friendship, trust and pure unbridled joy. He brings out the compassion and patience that makes us a better person. If we listen to all horses they truly tell us of their love and wanting to be a part of our lives in happiness. They are an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past and the pure joy of the moment.

Although many horses are neglected, often by ignorant handlers, ill fed, beaten and given terrible loads to carry on their backs and made to drag along heavy loads across the land, they still seemingly wish to be with us. When one is open to experiencing a relationship with a horse, one may find there is no other out their which instills the virtues of strength and loyalty in the way in which the horse does.
