TEACHING HORSEMANSHIP IS MY PURPOSE IN THIS WORLD. I LIVE FOR THOSE MOMENTS WHEN THE LIGHT COMES ON FOR A HORSE OR A PERSON. SOMETIMES I TRANSLATE FOR THE HORSES; THEY TELL ME IN THEIR OWN WAY WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO SAY AND I TRY TO PUT IT INTO WORDS FOR THE PEOPLE IN THEIR LIVES. SOMETIMES I MUST SPEAK TO THEM AND HELP THEM UNDERSTAND THE LANGUAGE OF THEIR HUMANS. WHATEVER IT IS, WHETHER IT’S GETTING A PERSON TO GO OUT ON A LIMB AND TRY SOME NEW THING OR WATCHING A HORSE LET GO OF A LOAD OF TENSION HE’S BEEN PACKING AROUND FOR YEARS, I COME ALIVE WHEN IT HAPPENS.

SO SEARCH AROUND ON MY WEBSITE. THERE ARE ARTICLES AND A BLOG, A Q&A SECTION, CLINIC INFORMATION AND LOTS OF PICTURES. LET IT HELP YOU GET CLOSER TO YOUR HORSE.
