If I have learned one thing from my travels, it is this: Wherever one goes, horses are horses and people are people. I know, it doesn’t sound very profound, but I find it profound in its simplicity. If there is a key to success in my world, it is understanding the mind of horses and the mind of people. It’s comforting to know that wherever I go, the equine and the human being are going to be just that……horses and people. My job is to teach and to see them learn and grow, resulting in the growth of my own horses and myself. The teaching that I do in one place seems to apply in another place, and that is oh so satisfying.
Thanks so much to Carolyn Hunt, Buck Brannaman, Deb Desreaux, Anthony Desreaux, Jaton Lord, Brook Hazlett, Andrea Hazlett, Barbara Ditmore, Jolene Duncan, Richard Duncan, Francesca Lord, and all the folks who allowed me to waltz off to the Land Down Under. I wouldn’t have done all this teaching and learning without you.
Special thanks to Erin Corey and Tom Clifford for keeping things running so smoothly at home.
