Let me begin this post by simply saying, that I'll share my personal experiences, but I'm always, I mean always in the learning mode. That other's out there involved with horses certainly have more experience and knowledge to offer and though some of it, I may disagree with at times, I will keep my listening ears on. When it comes to horses and training and, what works for some may not work for others. I recently went out to visit a certain very popular blog (and I'm not talking about Big Green), only to find a certain well known trainer's ideas being trashed. I must admit that I personally have only read tidbits about this trainer's ideas and a lot of people follow these methods. I recently did a post myself about the "horsenalities" this trainer had described. I thought it was fun, and the article itself was interesting reading. In my limited consistent horse experience of a short eight years, I've learned alot, but certainly not all, by any means! I've learned alot from my much more experienced best friend and her boyfriend. I've learned alot from other bloggers out there, reading their experiences and stories and life's work. I've learned alot from different vets I've had here, people who train and even people who call themselves trainers. People in show rings, people who breed and sell, farriers and you name it! One thing I have learned and stand strict by is that if you think you are the "Beat all and end all and know everything there is to know" about horses than you are an imbicile! GET OVER YOURSELF! This in not directed at any of my fellow consistant bloggers or even those new to it, of whom I've grown to respect and enjoy!
