We have had a little change of plans. We are going to stay here with Kathy's family a few more days till Miss Temple gets home. Kathy wants to make sure that she gets settled be fore we head home. So a few more days away from the pony's.
Miss Temple continues to improve and she can hardly wait to get home, and I don't blame her. Seven weeks is a long time to be away from home.
I got a nice email from Sue. She just returned from Portugal where she did some riding and training with a guy, can't remember his name. She has lots of pictures and lots of stories to tell, and I hope that she will let me share them with you all. You may remember that I have been working with Sue and a couple of her horses before we headed out on our trip. So I'm excited to see what she has learned and what I can learn from her and her experience.
I'm always looking to learn, all I can about not only horses, about how to get along with them and train them. I think that some folks get a little to narrow minded when it comes to horses, thinking that there way is the only way. Now don't get me wrong, I think that some ways are better then other ways of training but I know I can always learn something from other trainer or other folks, if what I learn is what NOT to do, I'm still learning and that it what is important. I have a WAY, it's not the only way, but it is a good way, that has served me, my horses and a lot of other people and their horses well for a long time. But that does not mean it is the only way. I encourage folks to look at other options, or training methods when they are working with their horses or have a problem in their training program. If you have an open mind when it comes to your training program you will find that your horses will have an open mind when you try things out on them, and from time to time you may find something that works really good for YOU and your horses.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
