“You look through pricked ears and see an endless world of possibilities ahead of you. Some are good, and some are bad; but, on the back of a horse, nothing else matters except you and your communication with this animal. It’s a mutually dependent relationship. You need the horse to carry out commands, but you also have to listen to the horse’s body cues and needs so that they can understand and trust you.”

When I first started showing in patterns, I thought that my maneuvers had to be perfect, and the rest of the pattern wasn’t too important. It didn’t matter if my circle was perfectly round or ended on the wrong angle, as long as it looked good and his lope was nice, right? Wrong!

New Blood- Change in the Equine Industry

“People turn over, new blood comes in and shakes things up. Old ways get changed, and new becomes old. It happens all the time, all over the place. Ultimately, change is inevitable. Some of our industry’s greatest success stories have come on the wings of change.”

There is something else though- a love, a fire, a passion that’s intangible to anyone that doesn’t have “it.” We do the crazy things we do because it’s what we know, and we don’t want to imagine a life without it. The love for our equine partners can’t be described in enough words.
