Lazy by Nature II

When I wrote of Lazy by Nature I received some questions. Mostly people didn’t understand how to use this theory to train a horse, or how to get them to a state of laziness. Here’s something I do with every horse I ride. I start in a circle at a long trot or posting trot. [...]

Change

I believe we have a change coming - a movement of people who want something different. Most people work as hard and as fast as they can and pray at the end of the day (and at the end of the month) they have enough money. Not to mention some happy thrown in somehow. Most [...]

Lazy by Nature

The theory is the horse is lazy by nature. The story is as follows. If we have a horse in a pasture and there is a round bale on one side of the pasture and the water trough is on the other, you will not see a horse run over to get a drink. The [...]

The Conspiring Universe

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” This is a great quote from THE ALCHEMIST, by Paulo Coelho. Sounds crazy but after listening (I listen to audio books often) to this book I get it. When you really want something the only thing stopping you from getting [...]

Be Passionate

Amanda Palmer: "I am not afraid. F&%$ safety. I rock on purpose all the time." This woman is incredible!! If you have not watched her Ted Talk, watch it. I've included it here. She throws out all the rules on business and marketing and creates something better than money - trust. If you have an [...]

You Can’t Teach Calculus to a 1st Grader

A horse must have basic skills before he can learn advanced skills.  Baby horses have very little knowledge to build from, so you have to find a way to access the little bit of knowledge they do have, and build from that.  A good example is how I teach a colt or filly to lead.  [...]

Life, Horses, Prosperity

Most horse people are crazy. Let me rephrase that. All horse people are crazy.  There is no other hobby that consumes our life as well as our funds more than horses. At the end of the month horse people are totally broke and exhausted - and they wouldn’t have it any other way. I believe [...]

Do It!

This from Jeff Olson’s, THE SLIGHT EDGE: “The truth is, what you do matters. What you do today matters. What you do every day matters. Successful people just do the things that seem to make no difference in the act of doing them, and they do them over and over and over until the compound [...]

Get Broke

I have judged, given lessons and attended a lot of shows over the last 20 years.  The one thing I’ve found is that everyone has an opinion about how to train a horse, and how a horse should move and look.  The part they don’t agree on is how to get to the final product. [...]

Happiness

I love this quote by Seth Godin: “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don't need to escape from.”  Have you ever heard someone say, “That’s not a job. That guy gets paid to have fun!” Well, why not?  Why not build your life around what [...]
