Why I Started Equine Assistant

I am a horse trainer. I have a degree in accounting. Hated it! (accounting) I love technology and what it can do for society. Just think of where we were even a couple years ago as far as how we communicate? How we track and share information? Yesterday, I thought I had to get something [...]

I Can Do It

I just got my hip done a week ago and I'm learning how much stuff I have a very hard time not being able to do myself. I don’t think it's a pride thing. I think it's just a stubborn thing. I refuse to setup rides to the doctor because I believe I can drive [...]

Leaders not Authority

The person that has the title CEO or Owner has “authority” because of his title, but does that have anything to do with being a “leader?" A person of authority is like a police officer; we respect and do what they say because they carry a gun and have the ability to make our lives [...]

Lunging – A How To

I received a message last week asking about the best way to lunge a horse. There are a few different takes on this, but here’s mine. This is actually a segment from GET BROKE - an interactive guide I’m working on with exercises and benchmarks for you and your horse. More on that in the [...]

The Choice

I have been getting a lot of good feedback from my little blog. I am blessed to know many great people and I thought I should ask a few to write something that I could share. The first person that came to mind was Tom Theisen. I really just got to know him over the [...]

Parkinson’s Law and Numbing Out

Parkinson's Law and Numbing Out are two concepts that go together when tackling the day in front of us. Parkinson’s Law is the concept that work expands to fill the time available for its completion and that a sufficiently large bureaucracy will generate enough internal work to keep itself “busy,” justifying its continued existence without [...]

Repetition and Consistency

Horses learn through repetition and consistency. Let’s take an easy example of getting your horse to move forward. In this situation, you might squeeze your legs on the horse’s side with two pounds of pressure to get the horse to move forward. You then repeat this action 20 times a day for 20 days, each [...]

Be Happy

I love writing this blog. I believe most people are like me. We are trying to find the right path in life and hope we don’t screw it up. It’s a lot like training horses. Every time I do something with a horse I stop and think, “Did he understand what I was teaching? Or [...]

Balance Leads to Abundance

I’m thinking about the wisdom by a smart guy, David Byrd, author of The Tripping Point in Leadership: Overcoming Organizational Apathy Each of us has 6 basic areas of our lives, Physical, Mental, Social, Financial, Spiritual, and Family. David's given me permission to repost one of his blogs, LIFE BALANCE. One of the most requested [...]

Horse Care – It’s a Team Effort

Some days I go to the barn and do the same thing I have done the 100 days before. I feed, clean, give meds, check on those that didn’t seem right the day before, etc. But then I get a funny feeling. Am I getting complacent about my job? These horses are other people’s kids. [...]
