Me

I have quite a few hobbies but a few real passions; Horses, Photography, Animals & Education.

I’m on  a quest to gain as much knowledge as I can about horses and horsemanship. To make myself the best horseman I can. It’s a continual journey with no end because I beleive you never stop learning…Even the masters say they don’t stop learning. In this path somehow I have gotten extremly lucky which doesn’t happen often for me. I have met and befriended some of the best, most knowledgeable and talented horsepeople and they each have catapulted my knowledge and skill way beyond where I would have ever been had I not met them. I feel deeply honored to not only have met them but to have been put on this road with horses in the first place.

I’m not a writer, I’m not even very good with punctuation and spelling but I try because I want to share everything I have learned and am learning, I want to learn from others, I want to be challenged to see if what I think is what’s the best thing to do. I also beleive the ONLY way as horseman in general will we get better is to spred the knowledge, Educate people and eachother, share stories and encourage better relationships. When it comes to horses there’s NO shame in saying “Okay I was wrong” or “There are better ways” and most importantly “No, I don’t know everything” Pride has no business in horsemanship. We get rid of that, we can open ourselves up to so much more.

  1. I fully agree. When it comes to horses (and life ) most pride is left in the saddle as you take wing from being thrown!

    So, last May (2011) I thought I had her all figured out. Sissy, the 4 year old appaloosa who has but two spots (one you can’t see because of her mane) had different thoughts. Pride is a dangerous vice. I just knew that I didn’t need a trainer, I could get her trained and ready for trails on my own. I had worked for 6 months doing ground work and trust exercises saddle breaking all of it went very well without incident. I thought everything was great. Then I was in the saddle and then she was moving way to fast for the area we were eclosed in, and then I wasn’t in the saddle any more. It took 5 months to recover from the shoulder and neck injury. It took a year and a professional trainer to get past my fear of getting back on her. She trusted me, but I didn’t trust her. This wasn’t working for either of us. So pride is something that should be definately left to lions.

  3. Awesome blog with really nice info!

    I really appreciate all the comments! I don’t do this blog to just use it as a sounding board. I love the comments and stories people post. Like I said before, we learn from eachother with open minds and open hearts you can never stop learning.
