The Relationship Between Humans and Horses

There is no doubt that humans and horses have a connection. Since the beginning of civilization, we have co-existed, in peace and in war. Horses have stood by our side in our most trying times, they have led us to victory on the battle field, they have celebrated our victories with us and they have died defending us.

“To ride a horse is to ride the sky” This quote brings to life the strange yet beautiful relationship humans have with horses. Our relationship with horses has varied throughout history depending on human needs. But is the horses’ ability to carry a human that has had the greatest impact on the relationship. Riding a horse has been a symbol of power the world over. A man mounted on a horse is bigger, not only in size, but in spirit. However, in modern times this relationship has changed. And this is because humans don’t need horses any more. With the invention of the motor car, horses are no longer the primary source of transport. Instead now Horses participate in sport and recreation. No longer must they carry us around, plough our fields or carry us into battle.

This is a fine tribute to man’s true best friend. We look upon them now with awe and admiration. Their beauty is something that is treasured. We thank all horses for the role they have played in carrying man through the ages, and now they have the greatest reward of living in peace.

A small slice of Heaven

Beau Chavel Equestrian
Paradise in every sense if the word, Beau Chavel is a classic example of unique beauty. Picture a chestnut coloured mare prancing through a green pasture, then leaning down to gently nibble on the grass. Behind her, the bright blue sky reveals the majesty of her surroundings. Now take it out of your mind and place it in reality.

This small corner of heaven is in the paradise known as Hartbeespoort. The Landsmeer Estate, where Beau Chavel is situated, is distinctly beautiful. Apartments with beautiful architecture flank the green pastures. Beau Chavel is a place for relaxation and peace. And I don’t mean this for my fellow humans, but for the horses. Beau Chavel is perfect for the horse owner and the horse its self. The lush landscape and the large pens provide horses with ample space to wander. Beau Chavel is ideal for anyone who seeks a well-run and well-kept stable for their horse. Their service comes with professional expertise and advice as well as a fun and friendly nature for rider and horse alike.
The horses are well looked after. Regular walks and exercise keep them busy. They also receive compassion and love. As the scripture from Corinthians goes, ”And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” This is the motto of Beau Chavel. It is what they base their business on, and it works. The passion that is shown comes through in the quality of service.

Beau Chavel also offers a friendly, fun activity for the kids to do during the school holidays. Beau Chavel has the perfect solution to the boredom woes. Pony Camps are a great way for your child to meet and interact with one of the most gentle and loving creatures in the world. As well as an excellent way to meet and spend time with other horse lovers in a safe, secure environment but with just the right amount of fun and entertainment added to make any holiday that extra bit interesting.

In conclusion, Beau Chavel is defiantly and undeniably the ultimate pleasure for the horses that live there. No equestrian that I have seen so far comes close, in beauty and quality.
