This woman lived as a horse until the age of 13.
Kate Havord would gallop around on all fours, wear a bridle and even eat grass.
Between the ages of six and 13 the 47-year-old claims a horse spirit entered her and eventually had 32 distinct horse personalities she could call upon at any given moment.
Kate, who lives in Chippenham, Wilts, but grew up roaming free on a farm in Scotland, would even try to eat her meals like a horse and fashioned some horse shoes from old cork.
She said: It was like the spirit of the horse entered me I felt so free and powerful and this euphoria was intensified by the fact that I won the race by a long shot.
From that moment on there was always more of a pull to get down on all fours and gallop that to walk along on two legs I would pretend to be a horse at every opportunity.
I remember going to my mum and dads vegetable patch and nibbling on broccoli flowers, a fennel bush or even a bit of grass although that was a bit of a struggle to eat.
I created horse shoes out of old cork tiles and stuck them on to create horse shoe patterns, and I used to use my mums empty face cream pots as hooves.
But she stressed she never fully believed she was an actual horse.
Single Kate, who has no children, said as younger sister Sarah, 44, joined in with her creative fantasy the pair eventually cultivated the personalities of 32 different horses.
But her days as a horse were eventually brought to a halt by her father, the late renowned television actor Conrad Phillips, when she was 13.
Eventually as a 13-year-old I was out trotting on my neighbours drive when my dad came out and said to me in his Shakespearean actors voice there comes a time, my darling, when every young lady has to put away her hooves.
It was then I remember that I suddenly felt a switch go off. That was a really strange moment. That day my childhood was over I stopped doing it after that.
Although Kates strong connection to horses did not waver though and she struck up a close bond with pet horse Orinoco, who died last year.
The spiritual priestess-in-training believes the spirits of Orinoco and her father appeared to her in clouds when each passed away.
And art therapist Kate, who works with children, believes her childhood behaviour perfectly demonstrates how children use escapism to deal with difficulties in life.
I can look back and see that maybe thats what happened for me as a child. It has definitely informed my work.
That horse’s tail is on the wrong end.
My Little Crazy Pony.
Perhaps your current _resident has been channelling the spirit of a part of a horse for many years.
I’m shocked that her nickname is “Single Kate.”
these kinds of things in children is usually the result of trauma from things like child molestation and beyond.
Methinks she be grazing in the mushroom fields a wee bit long. Struck her color blind too I see.
So how does one saddle this beast?
She is three quarters woman and a quarter horse.
When I was 13 I had a horse and I rode Sugarfoot all over my area. I never thought I was a horse, thankfully. My parents would have locked m up.
Especially since so many entertainment types are into serious drugs and the occult.
Today we are supposed to be supportive of people who believe they are animals or want to marry inanimate objects.
Really? My parents (DeplorableAmerican1776) said she was abused as a child and her ‘parents’ was into pony play, and she was the victim.
I'm thinking that Laz probably has some good ideas. :=)
Mrs. Ed is nucking futz.
Kate needs some serious spiritual help.
“.. spiritual-priestess-training....” is that like a CISCO certification?
