Sometimes I feel like this page just helps those that know me keep track of my horse doings, other times its a way for me to get information out there to people.
I didn't have a chance growing up to be around horses. It wasn't until I was in my early 20's that a friend of mine offered to pay for lessons since they didn't want to do alone. Since then I have a hard time when I am gone from my four legged friends for long.
Since my first introduction to horses, I have learned much and hope to never stop learning. The ability to keep an open mind when dealing with thousand pound animals is really important, as well as learning when to call it quits for a day. I will never call myself an expert and though I do get paid I find it hard to call myself a professional trainer. I do it for the connection I achieve each day, for the feeling of accomplishment, and for fostering growth in others.
My goal : to better myself so I can be better for them.
1. Why do you have a limit on horses you train?
-- Each time I take on a horse I like to give it my attention as much as possible. With more horses I feel like the ability I have to produce a horse that I am happy I trained goes down. I limit myself to only 3 horses at a time. Now that I have two horses I only have one training slot. I also board my horses and any training horses I take on so to keep cost at a manageable price I feel like 3 is a good number.
