Kjrsos Is... Creating Something Beautiful Together

"First of all let me make clear that there is no doubt in my mind that horses are incredible wise creatures and every day, I approach each horse, each new image ,with an open heart and hopefully an open mind, knowing that they have so  much to teach me, and I need to keep as many preconceived notions as I can from interfering with the learning and the lessons that they have been patiently waiting for years for me to open my eyes and heart to. They do have all the answers but sometimes those answers can surprise you."

This is where and when the partnership began. There is power in that.

To share how to say how to pronounce Kjrsos we need to start with the very first letter which actually can be represented as an accented K:
